The Big Oaks Childcare
The Oaks Childcare Club
Welcome to The Oaks. We offer breakfast and after school clubs at Mortimer St. John’s Infant School, Mortimer St. Mary’s Junior School and Burghfield St. Mary’s Primary School. The Oaks Club was started over 15 years ago and has evolved from one club run by volunteer parents to a community interest company running 6 clubs over three sites with over 200 children being looked after by a friendly, professional team of up to 23 staff.
Our Clubs provide a fun, safe place for children to play before and after their school day. We work closely with the schools, parents and children to provide continuity of care and to create an environment that works for each child.
Working with Parents
All parents want to know that their child is safe and happy while in our care. Our staff are very experienced in working with children of all ages. We aim to make their time at the club as relaxing and fun as possible and will spend time getting to know them and what they enjoy doing.
Familiar Location: The Big Oaks breakfast and after school clubs are held in the Oaks building, located on the school field at Mortimer St Mary’s. This helps your child relax in familiar surroundings after a full school day. We facilitate and oversee outside play in all but the most extreme of weather conditions. Our staff have a positive attitude to the outdoor environment and physical activity.
Child-led play: Your child decides whether they want to run around outside, draw with friends or chill out quietly with a book. Our staff support children to relax and have fun, whatever their needs or interests.
Healthy food: Breakfasts and snacks after school are healthy and varied. We can accommodate any dietary requirements or preferences.
Expert staff: Our team are carefully selected to bring a wide range of skills and experience to each club. Across the clubs, our team have may years of combined professional childcare experience and all have regular updates to their training and development. All staff are subject to enhanced DBS checks prior to employment.

Children can be dropped off at The Oaks building from 7.30 am. A wide range of breakfast choices including fresh fruit, cereal, yoghurt and water is provided to prepare the children for the day ahead. After having time to play children then make their way to their classrooms ready to start the school day.

After School Club – Big Oaks
Big Oaks after school club runs from the end of the school day until 6.30 pm. We are based in The Oaks building. Children can come straight to the club or via one the school-led clubs first. A wide range of healthy snacks is on offer so that the children can eat and drink as they choose.

Often the biggest complaint from our parents is that their child won’t come home because they are having too much fun!
