Meet the team

Here you can meet our wonderful team!

Helen opened the doors of Foxcubs Day Nursery on 29th May 2000 with the insight of creating the perfect nursery to send her own children to one day.

Helen has two children now, who came through Foxcubs Day Nursery as babies right through until they left to go to school. They both loved going to nursery everyday.

Continuing to strive to improve the nursery, Helen, along with her wonderful team aims to make the best and positive difference to the lives of every child that comes through Foxcubs doors.
