The Phonics Fox® - Ashby-de-la-Zouch


Hi, my name is Heather!

I am delighted to be part of The Phonics Fox® team and bring classes to Ashby-de-La-Zouch from October 2022. I will be introducing new classes into the Ibstock and Loughborough areas in the near future.


I am an experienced Primary School teacher and have spent 15 years teaching in schools. The majority of this time I worked in Reception class and I absolutely love being part of early years teaching.


I have a great passion for teaching early reading and phonics skills, and my teaching experience in early years has showed me the importance of encouraging a real love for reading and enjoyment of books in these early years of a child’s life. 


Reading is so important from an early age, making up a fundamental part of language development in early childhood. Reading also plays a crucial role for speech development.


Through The Phonics Fox® classes, I will endeavour to nurture your child’s love of reading. Drawing on the early years principles of learning through play, in my classes I hope to spark your child’s imagination, encourage their creativity and promote good communication skills.

We are now taking bookings for the Autumn Term! You can BOOK HERE!

We are so sad it’s over! Thank you so much for a brilliant six weeks. Leandro has learned so much and his confidence in writing has been amazing! Before we started, he wouldn’t even pick up a pen or pencil and try to write as he would get frustrated, but now he can hold it correctly and has even managed to write the letters he has learned!

Thank you! You were amazing!
