Karen and Philip Hardy registered Bloxcidge House as a 52 place Day Nursery in 1990. In 2004 Karen also became the registered provider for a 73 place nursery in Smethwick, Victoria House. Sian Chappell originally trained at Victoria House before moving across to Bloxcidge House to take up her current role of Manager, working alongside the Assistant Manager - Karen Brown.
