Parents concerned about the impending closure of the Oaklea Montessori Nursery at Mayes Lane, Ramsey, are relieved a new provider has stepped in to save the nursery.


Essex County Council arranged for the nursery  to stay open, whilst a new provider was found and having completed due process has chosen Harwich Connexions to run the nursery.


Richard Colley, Chairman of Harwich Connexions said ‘’We are delighted to be selected by the County Council and will relaunch the nursery at the beginning of April 2024 as the Windmill Nursery.


Although we are best known in the Harwich area for our community bus services, we run a range of community services including the Ofsted registered Noah’s Day Nursery at Barrack Lane, Harwich, so our team has extensive Early Years  experience.''


He added ‘’ There will be continuity for children currently on roll and we invite expressions of interest from parents seeking places for their children. The Windmill Nursery will be open Monday to Friday during 50 weeks of the year. This makes it an ideal nursery setting for working parents.’’

Dawn Lewis director of the Oaklea Montessori commented ‘’ We are so pleased the future of the nursery has been secured and are working with the Harwich Connexions team to ensure a smooth handover.’’
