hi my name is samantha jarvis I am a ofsted rated GOOD childminder i am 32 years old i live in Orpington with my partner our 2 little ladys and our dogs

I'm a friendly and kind person and see myself as very outgoing and confident, i am very reliable and active and believe this is the best way to be, especially when working with children. I am the middle of 5 sibling eldest have children them self's and i have done my fair share of looking after of family and friends children I understand that children need structure and skills to develop. i enjoy the company of children and love helping them to reach there goals and to help boost their confidence! I feel I am understanding to parents/carers childcare needs and requirements References and a clean CRB check will be available on request

I like the challenge of working with children because you are always learning new things and I find that no two days are the same.i used to look after young adults/children with learning difficulties and i loved it and learned so much i feel i made there life better as i taught them many life skills.

I provide a stimulating ,caring and fun homely environment, where children learn through play following the eyfs framework. I attend local playgroups and childminder drop in groups where children learn to socialise and form friendships with other children. I also incorporate cooking ,arts and crafts, music and outdoor play into our weekly routine and organise outings to parks ,soft play,libary,wood,farm,musemums and seaside.

I offer a wide range of home cooked food and snacks.im happy to cater for special dietary requirements where possible ( please discus with me )

Sammie are looking after Keira for 1 year now. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is loving and caring, fun and happy lady that always make sure the children are learning while they are having fun. She has been taking my children to so many places such as farms, soft plays and etc. Feed them with proper fresh cooked meals that my children loved. My kid is always happy in the morning when we going to Sammie!
Sammie is even picking up and dropping off, when you will need it!

My son came to Sammies Little Dreamers at the age of 2. When we started I wasn’t sure what times I needed care but Sam was very accommodating to my needs when I changes my timings. The setting is clean and safe, with stair gates to keep the young ones away from danger. Sam is very friendly and communication throughout the day is good with comments and photos via message informing of what is happening throughout the day. My son enjoyed talking about Sam’s dogs, as we don’t have pets at home, it’s a real treat playing with dogs. Sam offers a range of different foods which is great as my son is a fussy eater and it introduces him to other flavours. He has been entertained with local outings and playtime outdoors as there is a field and playground opposite the setting. Overall I am pleased with the care my son has received at the setting and would recommend Sam to others. Thank you Sam for being so supportive.

Our son was just 3 months old when he started at Sam’s. We were really nervous due to the fact that he was really little. But Sam treated our son like her own and we didn’t have to worry at all. She recorded in his diary every activity done during the day and she sent us pictures and videos. The quality of Care given to our baby by Sam has been excellent and he has grown to become a healthy and smiley baby boy. We are pleased with the way Sam looks after our son. Her home environment is very neat, safe and spacious enough for our son to play. Our baby had a great time with her but we had to leave after 6months as we moved houses.
We will recommend Sam to parents looking for a good and reliable childminder without any hesitation as she is really good at what she does.
