About Busy Rascals
As well as supporting local parents, carers and families, we are passionate in supporting local businesses so that they continue running in our community. We are pleased to be working together with The Queensbury as well as our other local partners including Maple Walk School and are grateful for their support in helping us continue to run our much loved project.
Born in 2012, Busy Rascals is a not-for-profit community project set up and run by Sharmine Chowdhury-Tse (local mum of two with a work background in Training and Development, Antental and Postnatal Education and Event Management).
Busy Rascals was set up in response to local parents asking Sharmine to organise local baby and children’s activities for the local community following her successful weekly NCT NW2 coffee tea social support morning which she set up in 2011 whilst pregnant with her oldest child.
Busy Rascals aims to support parents and carers with their babies and children. We host a variety of weekday classes and activities and one Saturday morning class a month.
We are passionate about the wellbeing of children and their parents and supporting parents to make informed decisions and therefore host a variety of adhoc workshops to inform parents about topics relating to parenting and caring for their children, such as Paediatric First Aid.
We also run adhoc events such as our own seasonal parties/fairs (Winter, Annual celebration, Easter) for the local parent and carer community and their children.
Many parents find it difficult returning to work after having children. 90% of the classes, activities, events and workshops we organise are run by parents to support them back into the workforce after having children. Led by parents for parents.
Over the years, Sharmine/Busy Rascals has won various awards for their work in the community including NetMums Silver Award Winner 2012 and What’s On For Little Ones Nominee 2013, NCT London Stars Award Parent Supporter of Year 2014, and the NCT Diamond Jubilee London Award 2016 and NCT Diamond Jubilee Special National Award 2016 which was awarded at City Hall.
Busy Rascals provide a baby and child friendly environment where parents in NW2, NW10, NW6 and in local areas can meet, socialise and participate in various classes and activities with their little ones.
The activities we offer include music, songs, rhymes, dance, social mornings as well as workshops for parents.
Busy Rascals host parent and baby, toddler, preschool children mornings Monday to Saturday between 9.30am-11.30am (time depends on class times) at the Queensbury Pub, 110 Walm Lane, Willesden Green NW2 4RS. We also run adhoc workshops at Maple Walk School, NW10 4EB.
