How to join

All registered childminders are welcome to visit and/or join the childminding group at Little Foxes Children's Centre. We meet weekly during term time on a Thursday from 9.30am-11.30am.

Musical Bumps also visit once a month - there is a small additional charge in order to cover the extra costs.

Please complete the 'contact us' page if you would like to join the group. The chairperson will then contact you and arrange for an application form to be completed.


The annual fee to join the group is £24. It is renewed in April each year. 
As a member each time you attend the group there is a charge of £1 per child to cover the cost of craft and refreshments. If you are on the rota and providing snack or a craft activity you only need to pay if you have in excess of 3 children (eg if you have 4 children you only need to pay for 1 of them).
The charge for Musical Bumps is £1.50 per child.

Non-members are welcome to attend but the charges will be £2 per child (£2.50 for Musical Bumps sessions)

Members can have their own profile page on the website for an additional fee of £15 per annum.
