SUMMER HOLIDAY – School Holiday Club

Its nearly time for the BIG HOLIDAY! The Summer school holiday (which is great for children but NOT for parents) so I am pleased to provide all the details for our School Holiday Club here at The Cheeky Monkeys Day Nursery Group.

The details listed below are based on our Cheeky Monkeys Nursery at The Essex Golf and Country Club however each of our nurseries may decide to make a small change where they need, perhaps swapping individual days to something more specific to them.

Please do not hesitate to contact the nurseries direct for their School Holiday Clubs – their contact telephone numbers are Tel: 01206 574402 for Colchester (William Harris Way) for Colchester (Sheepen Road / Colchester Institute) its 01206 560814 and for Earls Colne (Essex Golf and Country Club) its 01787 221102 where we would be pleased to discuss in more detail and arrange your bookings.

Please remember that you do not need to be coming to the nursery on a permanent basis – we accept all children up to the age of eight.

We look forward to being of assistance.

Kind regards,


Stephen Hall

Business Manager
