Playgroups & Classes Harrogate


LinGo Explore – Pre-school outdoor language classes from a trained and experienced language teacher.  Learn French and Spanish in your welly boots!

Want to inspire both a love of languages and nature?  My lessons are based in the enchanting garden at Horticap in Harrogate on Thursday mornings.  We also have access to a classroom for very rainy days.

In the lessons I include lots of games, songs, crafts, role play activities and stories to engage with and inspire young children.  The garden is simply magical and perfect for little boys and girls who like to play outdoors.  I speak in French and Spanish much of the time and use drama to help them understand.

Each lesson is 45 minutes long and it is £6.50 per child.  The lesson times are as follows;
French – 9.30 -10.15
Spanish – 10.30 – 11.15
French – 11.30 – 12.15

What people say about me; “Caroline takes my girls who are 2 and 4 to explore the outside gardens of Horticap teaching French through play. The girls love it, they have picked up lots of new words, developing phrases and songs. Caroline is a fantastic tutor and has a great relationship with the younger ones, her enthusiasm is infectious!” Issy Rowe

Harrogate and Knaresborough Toy Library

Any Age Play Sessions

Beginning on Tuesday 29th September, we will be running outdoor play sessions for children and their grown ups. These will take place from 10am – 11.30am in the grounds of Knaresborough House, just across the road from The Toy Library. There will be a range of toys and resources available to play with and our staff will be on hand to sanitise items regularly.

Parent and Baby Sessions

Beginning on Wednesday 16th September, we will be running outdoor sessions exclusively for parents with babies. These will take place from 10am – 11.30am at the Toy Library in the garden of St Mary’s Church. We hope to provide an opportunity for parents to socialise and share experiences (in the fresh air!) plus some sensory exploration for the babies with a selection of our toys available to use. Parents will be served with a drink & biscuits and our staff will be around for chat and information.

The sessions will cost £3 per child (plus 50p per additional child) to attend (payment must be made online through bank transfer. We cannot accept cash) and we will take names and contact details of everyone in attendance for track and trace purposes.
