Hello! I'm Melanie! I am excited to join The Phonics Fox® and bring these fun, educational classes to Long Eaton and surrounding areas.

I am passionate about literacy and phonics and giving children the very best start to their education. I am an experienced primary school teacher. I have led Literacy in schools for over ten years and supported other schools in raising standards in literacy. I have also been a manager for Early Years Foundation Stage and led Key Stage One.

​I am a mother to two children- who are now grown up. I taught my own children to read and write using phonics and I saw how it gave them confidence when starting school.

I have seen, first hand, how phonics has helped my own children and children in schools. Reading and writing is important for all subjects, not just literacy. I feel passionate about introducing phonics earlier to children, to give them a solid foundation for their learning; with lots of fun along the way!

​I can't wait to be part of your children's learning journeys and share the magic of The Phonics Fox® with you too!

Mother and daughter in Phonics Fox classes learning new sounds

I thoroughly recommend this excellent class for pre-schoolers. My youngest has loved learning to read through these immersive and fun sessions. We participated both in the classroom and via Zoom- and it was no less fun! These sessions give children a real head start for starting school.
