Inspiring all children to create & achieve

Oliver's Lodge

An independent breakfast and after school club at Earls Colne Primary School.

Having started Oliver's Lodge 19 years ago, we have watched it go from strength to strength.  Although we have seen our fair share of ups and downs, we continue to develop and strive towards providing enabling environments for the children who come to us. 

How do we achieve this?

Internally, we listen to our children – they tell us their likes and dislikes and we create topics based around their interests, meeting their needs and creating fun learning through play.  Whether the children learn in sand, soil, water or through role play – through walks, books, experiments or their peers; as long as they are happy they will learn.

Externally, we try to provide a service that meets the needs of the parents; times, services, flexibility but this is not always easy as every family is individual and requires different things.

Taking all the above on board, we believe we have a service in Earls Colne that provides most of the above.  Providing a breakfast club from 0745 to 0900 and an after school club from 1515 to 1800, with two collection times providing flexibility in pricing.  We also offer a holiday scheme in nearby Halstead for those parents who need cover during school holidays.

Please feel free to contact us should you require any further information, to book a visit or to book your child into Oliver's Lodge.

We look forward to meeting you.
