About Little Foxes in Newton

We are an EYFS-based nursery in Newton. We care for children from 0 to 5 years old, and provide a range of age appropriate resources and activities to encourage their development right up until they are ready to join school. At Wigan Newton and Garston we also offer holiday club for children 4-12.

About Little Foxes in Newton

Our philosophy is based on learning and creativity. By blending indoor and outdoor classrooms and environments in a home-away-from-home environment, we are able to create a space where children feel empowered and ready to learn.

Our aim for the nursery is to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for the children. We try to nurture, care and challenge each child individually and give the best personal care we can.


Who We Are

We are a family run private nursery first set up in 1996 in the garden of 57 Fox House Lane by Jim and Margaret. Since then, their daughters Sophie and Anna have taken over the running of the nursery, and have expanded to four settings.

We involve parents in the education of their children in order to support and extend each child's learning and foster a climate of co-operation, respect and to promote mutual understanding.

A good relationship between the home and nursery is seen as being central to the children's success and development.

The Little Foxes Team works in partnership with our parents and we encourage our open door policy whereby any parent may ask to see their child at any point during the day ensuring that we uphold good practice at all times.

We believe our innovative approach gives children a bright and positive start in life as we encourage both exploration and discovery as well as emotional intelligREDESIGN - DIVIDERence and building friendships.

Our Safe & Secure Facilities

Our facilities provide state of the art security throughout, giving our parents complete peace of mind as to the safety of their precious children.

We have pin coded security entrances / exits ensuring your child is safe at all times. Each room has CCTV which is controlled and monitored by the Nursery Manager on an ongoing basis.

Feeding Your Little Ones

At Little Foxes Nursery, we completely understand the importance of healthy eating and nutrition for our children. We provide freshly prepared, carefully balanced, nutritious meals appropriate to each child's developmental stage.

We actively encourage our children to make healthy choices for their snacks which help them to develop their understanding of healthy eating whilst also growing their independence too.

We cater for all dietary requirements, special needs or religious beliefs – lactose intolerant, diabetes, celiac, gluten free, vegetarian or any other requirements. Rest assured that your child will only be given the appropriate and correct foods at all times.

About Our Newton Location

When you visit us here at Little Foxes, you’ll see firsthand what makes us different!

The two story building is made up of three converted cottages, set over two floors. Located on the ground floor is the baby room, with a brand new baby garden.

The baby rooms also include a sensory room, beach room, sleep room, and creative room with direct access into an REDESIGN - ABOUT - FEEDINGoutdoor provision solely for use by the babies. Toddlers is located on the ground floor and has a dedicated garden space.


The Preschool unit is in a purpose built open plan building just opposite.The nursery is an open plan building, dividing the space into two, with the younger pre-schoolers on one side of the nursery and the older pre-schoolers in the other. We have created a focused room for the practitioners to take small groups of children to complete activities such as phonics and language assessment programmes. Both rooms have free flow access to the garden and have a mini snuggle garden with astroturf.

Our ethos is ‘to give unlimited and natural play experiences’. A major part of this is to have the setting painted calm neutral colours and have as many open ended natural resources. The nursery has CCTV in the playrooms and garden areas, this is monitored at head office. We have coded doors added onto the playrooms to ensure the safety of the children using the nursery.


Merging Teaching and Childcare

We believe that it’s never too early to start learning and that it’s vital to always present opportunities for children to learn and grow as soon as they start at our setting.

Each child is treated as an individual and with respect and these are values which we teach to all the children in our care. They learn to understand how we are all different and how we must always treat each other in a kind and caring manner.

We work and partner with outside professionals and agencies; local play schools; local play groups; companies and all government initiatives to ensure that your child is receiving the highest level of education and support available.

By developing our programs with curriculum experts and childcare specialists, we’ve been able to hone in on what makes early education a success and created a learning program that allows our children to feel confident in themselves and their abilities as they reach school.
