Red Fox Nursery is owned and managed by Katrina Willsher. Katrina is a trained teacher with 10 years teaching experience followed by running her own nurseries since 1991. Red Fox was established in 1993 and Katrina has worked in the nurseries on a daily basis since then.

Geoff Willsher is the Bursar and Administrator for Red Fox but he also spends time playing games with the children, giving puppet shows or providing activities where the children are gently challenged in energetic and imaginative ways.

Both Katrina and Geoff are passionate about children having high quality interactions with adults and about the importance of children spending time outdoors, for the fresh air, freedom and unrivalled possibilities for learning that it provides.

As working parents ourselves (our children were in this nursery too) we understand the busy lives working parents lead so we know how important it is to have a good care system in place which is reliable and of a good quality.
