The Oaks is a not-for-profit organisation (a Community Interest Company) providing wraparound and preschool care in Mortimer, Burghfield and Silchester. All of our clubs are a fun, safe place for children of different ages to play, relax and spend time together. The Oaks was started nearly 20 years ago in Mortimer and has evolved from one club run by volunteer parents to a Community Interest Company running 9 clubs in 3 villages with over 250 children being looked after by a friendly, professional, and caring team of around 35 staff.
In Mortimer we run Early Little Oaks breakfast club at the Mortimer Community Centre (7.30-9.00am), and then accompany the children safely to their classroom at Mortimer St John’s school. Our Little Oaks club provides after-school care on-site at Mortimer St John’s from the end of the school day until 6.00pm.
Down the hill at Mortimer St Mary’s, we run Early Big Oaks breakfast club (7.30-9.00am) and Big Oaks (3.30-6.30pm). Children are able to use the extensive school playing fields, astroturf area, and playground equipment for outdoor play, and indoor play extends from the Oaks building into the school hall and classrooms on some days when these are available.
Our staff are trained in ‘child-led play’, a method which develops children’s confidence and imagination as well as their friendships. We really get to know your child and love seeing them have fun. Often the biggest complaint we get from parents is that their child won’t come home because they’re having too much fun!
