About Us

We are a family run private nursery first set up in 1996 in the garden of 57 Fox House Lane by Jim and Margaret and now have daughters Sophie and Anna working as area managers. Our aim for the nursery is to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for the children. We try to nurture, care and challenge each child individually and give the best personal care we can. We provide high quality, flexible childcare.

The nursery is situated at the back of the garden. The children have use of a large outdoor space, with a special smaller garden for the babies. We have recently spent a lot of time working on our outdoor area. We have created a music wall, a built in sand pit, a mud kitchen, a water feature and a boat. We strive to spend 80% of our day outdoors. We have invested in all-weather suits so that weather is not a restriction for outdoor play. As we have a large outdoor space which is divided, it enables all of our children to play out at the same time throughout the day. We have a variety of outdoor toys available and team set up the area daily based on weather and children’s interests and learning. We have had news dens built both indoors and out to help children’s language development and for children with additional needs.

We are open 7:30am -6:00pm Monday to Friday and are closed on bank holidays.

Our Safe & Secure Facilities

Our facilities provide state of the art security throughout, giving our parents complete peace of mind as to the safety of their precious children. 

We have pin coded security entrances / exits ensuring your child is safe at all times. Each room has CCTV which is controlled and monitored by the Nursery Manager on an ongoing basis.

Feeding Your Little Ones

At Little Foxes Nursery, we completely understand the importance of healthy eating and nutrition for our children. We provide freshly prepared, carefully balanced, nutritious meals appropriate to each child's developmental stage. 

We actively encourage our children to make healthy choices for their snacks which help them to develop their understanding of healthy eating whilst also growing their independence too. 

We cater for all dietary requirements, special needs or religious beliefs – lactose intolerant, diabetes, celiac, gluten free, vegetarian or any other requirements. Rest assured that your child will only be given the appropriate and correct foods at all times.

Each child is treated as an individual and with respect and these are values which we teach to all the children in our care. They learn to understand how we are all different and how we must always treat each other in a kind and caring manner.

We work and partner with outside professionals and agencies; local play schools; local play groups; companies and all government initiatives to ensure that your child is receiving the highest level of education and support available.

Values & Standards

We involve parents in the education of their children in order to support and extend each child's learning and foster a climate of co-operation, respect and to promote mutual understanding. 

A good relationship between the home and nursery is seen as being central to the children's success and development.

The Little Foxes Team work in partnership with our parents and we encourage our open door policy whereby any parent may ask to see their child at any point during the day ensuring that we uphold good practice at all times.
