Care Love Learn proves to be life saver for local families

Wigan-based Out of School Club Care Love Learn is celebrating a successful six-week Summer Camp that took place throughout July and August and helped countless numbers of families.

Care Love Learn proves to be life saver for local families

"It has been our mission to give local children the best summer ever and help them to feel safe and secure in our environment."
Founder and manager of Care Love Learn, Sue Morris

Care Love Learn organised the Summer Camp with the intention of supporting local families and providing valuable childcare at a time when the government was urging parents back to work. 

The childcare provider – which is based at St Oswald’s Catholic Primary School in Ashton-in-Makerfield – worked hard to ensure that all activities were COVID compliant but, more importantly, were also engaging and fun for the children. 

The Summer Camp was fully booked for the six-week period, with children joining them from across the borough, as it was one of the only childcare providers operating in the area. 

Activities at the Care Love Learn Summer Camp included baking, crafting, painting, outdoor games, sports, assault courses, picnics and many more fun things besides. They even had a party one day as the childcare provider celebrated its first Birthday.

Founder and manager of Care Love Learn, Sue Morris, commented: “Some children from the area had been at home since March with either no or very little interaction with other children due to COVID-19 so it has been our mission to give them the best summer ever and help them to feel safe and secure in our environment.

“Everyone has had to sacrifice so much this year, but I think things have been particularly difficult for those with young children due to childcare issues and worries about keeping them entertained. Hopefully our summer camp gave them a feeling of ‘normality’ and both parents and children alike felt the benefits of social interaction. 

“The team of staff have worked hard every day continuously sanitising areas so that children could relax and play safely; no stone has gone unturned as they moved around the rooms and the outdoor play areas to ensure that the equipment and resources were kept sanitised at all times. It has meant many extra hours of work, but they have done it with smiles on their faces as they have known what a difference it has made to local families.”

One of the children commented: “I had the best time this summer and it was so nice to be back with my friends and doing fun things instead of being stuck at home!”

Children who attended the summer camp have now returned to school, but the great work at Care Love Learn at St Oswald’s continues as their Breakfast and Afterschool Club has returned to its normal schedule. The team provides complete wrap around care to suit different children’s individual needs according to their school start and finish times.

Care Love Learn is also gearing up for its next holiday camp which will be during October Half Term.
