Bloxcidge House, providers of exceptional childcare in Oldbury, West Midlands


The Nursery owners are Philip and Karen Hardy.  The Director is Karen who has an

Advanced Diploma in Childcare and Education (ADCE)

Foundation Degree in Management of a Childcare Provision.

Karen and Philip set up Bloxcidge House in 1990 and then in 2004 became the registered providers for a 73 place nursery in Smethwick, Victoria House.

Sian Chappell trained at Victoria House before moving to Bloxcidge to take up the role of Manager, working alongside the Assistant Manager - Karen Brown.


Sian and Karen both work full time and supervise all childcare aspects of the nursery. It is this stability, together with a number of very experienced staff, that gives Bloxcidge House the friendly, welcoming atmosphere that our parents and visitors often comment on.
