Colchester, St John's
Oaklea Montessori assumed responsibility for this setting in September 2017. As the nursery is under new management, we are adapting our service to better meet the needs of the community and meet the high standards of the other Oaklea settings.
We are twinned with an accredited Montessori nursery providing quality childcare & education which is affordable, accredited and accessible for all children.
We are in the process of transitioning to a full day care setting and are currently open from 8:30am to 5:30pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays and 9am to 4pm on other weekdays. These hours are under review and will soon be extended further
We provide childcare from two to five years old
We are conveniently situated just off Ipswich Road, Colchester, which is on a bus route
We are for all families living or working in Colchester or surrounding rural areas
We work closely with the Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service to support families
