About Us

Laura Underwood

Founder / Manager

Hello I’m Laura, Owner and Managing Director of Active Stars Holiday Club!

I am a mum to two very cheeky little girls! We love spending time together as a family, adventures out and about and messy play!

I have trained and worked in the early years and childcare sector for the past 15 years, from babies and young children in nurseries and pre-schools to teaching year 10’s and 11’s in secondary school and training young people to gain apprenticeships within the childcare sector.  With my knowledge and expertise in my career combined with our learning adventures as parents we have created Active Stars Holiday Club to bring to you Colchester’s newest school holiday childcare provision.

At Active Stars Holiday Club we strive to provide non-stop fun and activities for all children in our care from singing and dancing, arts and crafts, baking and sports, there is something for everyone!

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you for some school holiday fun.  Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
