Reading Fairy is now running in your area! The classes are very popular, so book early to avoid disappointment.


Hello, I'm Tracy Carter, and I’m thrilled to be bringing Reading Fairy classes to Bexley in September 2017!

Bexley children have the chance to become some of the first in the country to join Reading Fairy's magical baby, toddler and preschool classes – and I can't wait to share my love of books with you all! I’ve always been a bookworm, and spent most of my childhood in libraries or curled up exploring new worlds with the help of a good book. After my English Literature degree, only a publishing career would do, and I’ve spent more than a decade working as a Book Editor, most recently for Rough Guides (part of Penguin Books).

When my daughter was born I realised I love sharing books with children even more than I love reading them myself! I read to both of my kids from birth, delighting in sharing classic picture books from my own childhood – “Peepo”, “The Tiger Who Came to Tea”, “Alfie Gets in First” – and discovering wonderful new books together – “I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato”, “Superworm”, “Oi Frog!” What could be better than snuggling up with your child, seeing their joy as magical stories unfold before their eyes?

When my eldest child started school, I realised that all the books, storytelling, rhymes and word games had given her the best start – she was desperate to master reading herself so she could join in all the fun! Three years ago, I started volunteering in the School Library, keen to find ways to share our family love of books with other children, and then I discovered Reading Fairy…

I was completely bowled over when I first saw Emily, the original Reading Fairy, telling stories and exploring letter sounds with a group of mesmerised pre-schoolers. Reading Fairy’s pioneering programme uses the latest early years research to develop the crucial building blocks for learning to read, including phonics. We believe in learning through play and nurturing a love of books and reading for life!

Created by early reading experts, Reading Fairy classes are designed to develop crucial building blocks for learning to read from 1–5 years. Reading Fairy’s unique programme is based on the latest research and best early years practice. We believe in learning through play, and nurturing a love of books and reading for life.

At Reading Fairy baby, toddler and preschool classes in Bexley, every week is different. We use fun props and characters, original songs, nursery rhymes, sensory and performance storytelling, fun phonics, word games, picture books, talking and listening activities and more to engage and delight your child. Reading Fairy classes develop early literacy and communication skills, inspire a love of reading and help to prepare your child for starting school.

We work with leading organisations to run storytelling and picture book events for reading and literacy charities, libraries, publishing houses and educational establishments to support children’s reading. And Reading Fairy parties are a great way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions too!



Reading Fairy classes are paid as a block and work out as £7 each.

You're welcome to come along for a free, no-obligation trial before you commit to a term, and also to join up mid-term if spaces are available.

All children must be supervised at all times and not left unattended. The Class Leader cannot be responsible for a child at any time. Regrettably as each of our classes are designed for babies, toddlers and preschools of specific ages, older siblings cannot attend unless specifically invited.

Should a carer or associated visitor behave in a way that the Class Leader feels is unreasonable then the company reserves the rights to withdraw the provision of classes to the client.


No later than two weeks before your term runs out your class leader will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term. The Class Leader will inform you of the mechanism to rebook your space and payment terms. Note however that places remain on a first come first served basis.
