ABOUT THE FOX'S DEN
The Fox’s Den is a fun, safe and secure environment located in the child’s school. Setting up this secure link within schools provides each child with a clear definition in their day while reducing traveling time for parents and their children one drop off one pick up.
We focus on physical and outdoor play allowing time for homework to be completed. We have 5 stars employed by the Environmental Health Trust and always ensure children are offered greatly nutritious snacks.
We are registered by the Northern Health and Social Care Trust and all children are supervised under a ratio of 1:8 (staff:children) this helps staff to build a good relationship with parents and children. All staff are fully vetted by the board and have a minimum level 3 in a childcare qualification to ensure we always offer an excellent service of care for all our children in our care.
WHO AM I?
During my 16 years working with children and being a parent myself I can see there is a gap in the market for safe affordable childcare after the school day. I’ve carried out loads of research and find that this type of childcare best suits school age children. Having done my level 3, level 5 management in childcare, numerous play board and special need training I believe that we at the fox’s den are always striving to ensure that we meet the needs of our working parents while providing a very high quality service.
WHAT WE DO!
Playing is serious fun and is fundamental in a child’s development. Babies and toddlers learn through play, Play is a natural way for young children to learn. A well planned indoor and outdoor environment is vital in providing children with absorbing and stimulating activities which enable them to learn through meaningful play experiences.
