Welcome to Little Oaks. We are an Ofsted registered provider of wrap around care, providing before and after school clubs and holiday clubs for children at Belchamp St. Paul Primary School and those from the local area.
Run by two qualified teachers, our aim is to offer fun and enrichment beyond the classroom whilst providing an affordable and safe child care environment.
Our sessions offer a range of activities to suit each child attending and are designed to be play-led whilst supporting the curriculum followed by the school. We provide breakfast (at breakfast club) and light snacks during after school club and we operate on the school site.
We are set up for Tax Free Childcare Payments and childcare vouchers and offer sibling and multi-day discounts as well as half day options for holiday clubs.

We will be as much as possible keeping children in the same bubbles that they are in during the school day (by key stage) and we will be keeping those bubble groups socially distanced from each other whilst they are in attendance at the club. We will be closely following the same principles as the school and will be encouraging regular hand washing and spaces and equipment will be regularly cleaned. Please feel free to talk to us any time about the measures we will be taking to ensure safe operation and we will be happy to share a copy of our Covid-19 risk assessment with you on request.
