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. 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 in 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 via BOOK NOW button! If you can't make these classes but are still interested in joining us you can

My little boy has been attending Heather's Phonics Fox class for nearly a year and has enjoyed every exciting session! Each class is very well planned and organised to cater for children from 2 years old upwards. There have been a tremendous variety of activities on offer which fit with the sound of the week. 

Heather has created a special, warm, nurturing environment which has enabled my child to flourish. His confidence and speech and language skills have shown great progress.

Your class really has been so special.
