School House Nursery is a full day nursery for children from birth to five years old. It is located in the grounds of Pannal Primary School, across from Busy Bees and has places for 15 children. We work closely with the Nursery to help parents who need a full day of childcare rather than just the morning sessions at Busy Bees. Our longer Lunch Club sessions are timed to fit with the start of an afternoon session at the Nursery and our staff will take children over there after lunch. Tel: (01423) 873619.
