Olivers Lodge childcare aims high to provide a quality, safe, warm, caring environment for the children at Pre School, to come and learn though play both for our pre-schoolers and those children who join us for extended schools can relax, have fun and play after a hard school day. We work towards helping them in play and in return we offer parents peace of mind that their children are being well cared for in our safe fun environment.
