My daughter started with Sarah at 14 months old and had bad separation anxiety. Sarah put my mind at ease the moment I went to visit her home and I knew straight away that my daughter was going to love it there. After a couple of weeks my daughter began to go to Sarah and put her arms out to be taken off me and for her this was a huge step as she was still wary of some family members at this point. Sarah is so professional and gave me fantastic advice not only as a childminder but as a parent and helped me establish a routine when I was struggling with bed time and also gave me ideas of ways to include my son with taking care of his little sister too. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a caring, professional and amazing childminder who will make both you and your child feel safe and secure.

Sarah is a fantastic childminder. Our son has been with Poppins childcare for three months, and he settled in with Sarah as soon as he met her. We had no difficulties leaving him at all (even though he was only 9 months old). He was so happy from the word go, and seems to thoroughly enjoy his days at her setting. Sarah is friendly, professional and very experienced, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to anyone.

"Nanny" Sarah is a fantastic childminder. I found her through attending a local music group and after seeing how wonderful she was with the children she was looking after I was very happy to be able to put my son in her care when she had a space.

The electronic diary Sarah uses is wonderful for getting updates through the day and seeing pictures of my son happy and playing in different groups is very reassuring. Sarah will always message with a picture of him happy if he has been tearful when I drop him off.

When I needed extra days due to having to increase my working hours Sarah was happy to have my son for the extra hours even though it will only be for a few months before I go on maternity leave.

Sarah is wonderful with all children and always does all she can to accommodate any changes needed or extra sessions.

Sarah is a modern day “Mary Poppins”. Sarah is very warm and caring. She has a lovely nature about her and loves children. My son is autistic who Sarah has taken under her care and made him feel comfortable. In return has given him a lot of confidence. It is the happiest I’ve seen him which makes for happy parents.
Always had issues over the school holidays with my son stressing and becoming anxious. He went to Sarah’s for under 4 weeks and never had one complaint. Very happy boy. Sarah plans daily activities and is out with the children all the time.

Would highly recommend Sarah for your childcare needs.

Sarah has been looking after my twin girls for four months now. Sarah has a child centered approach to childcare which I really value, my children are happy when they are with her. Sarah takes the children out to groups so that they get a variety of play opportunity. She has a lovely way with the children and has really taken the time to get to know them. She is flexible and really thinks about the children's needs and how to best meet them, you can tell she has a lot of experience in childcare. I was impressed with how much trouble she took to get to know them in the early days which helped a lot when I was finding the thought of leaving them difficult.

Sarah keeps me updated with an online diary. Its nice to get the messages while I'm at work, she will often add photos of the girls and I like to see them having fun at groups or having lunch in town.

I am very glad I found Sarah, I have been able to return to work without worrying about whether my children are happy. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

Sarah has been looking after my son for 7 months now for a couple of days a week and he absolutely loves it! I looked at several childcare options but once I spoke to Sarah I knew she was the right person to care for my son.
Everything she does is focused on the children's wellbeing. She has created a happy and safe environment for them. Would not hesitate in recommending Sarah to anyone.

We have found Sarah after my daughter had a bad experience in a nursery, and she was doing very well with my daughter! From the first day she come home happy and she can't wait to go again.
I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone, she's the best.

When I had my twins I needed some help after I picked my son up from school. Sarah and I worked together on a month to month basis and agreed times and days that worked for both of us so she could provide the support I needed for my family.

Sarah is amazing at what she does and is very professional and friendly.

The babies felt comfortable with her and our son is very fond of her. I would highly recommend Sarah for anyone looking for childcare.

Sarah at Poppins childcare has been a godsend for me and my family. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her caring, supportive, honest attitude. My daughter thinks she is wonderful and often speaks of her at the weekend. I feel completely confident that she is doing her absolute best for my daughter and this is shown by the way my daughter has come on in her speech, behaviour, manners and social skills.
I can't recommend Sarah enough xx

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, I adore looking after your little one, and I am so happy that she is safe and secure here.

I can honestly say im so happy i found Sarah as a childminder. I needed to go back to work early so needed childcare for my baby of just 3 months old. From the moment i visited Sarah even before Ella was born i knew she was the right person to look after my baby. She shows so much care towards the children there that day that i could see the type of care Ella would recieve! After visiting Sarah once Ella has been born any doubts i may have had were put at ease through seeing Sarah with Ella, it was obvious that Sarah was someone who was going to love and care for Ella when i had to go to work. We have now been with Sarah for 4 months and Ella adores going she never has any issues being left and always has a beaming smile for Sarah when we arrive and always a beaming smile when i return, always signs of a happy baby! One of the things i like about Sarah is she is always happy to give advise or point out some tips that may help and as parents we can always use some more tips to help out! I also love the diaries and the pictures that we get sent so i can see what Ella gets up to on her 'Sarah days' and it seems there is never a dull day! I would recommend Sarah at Poppins Childcare to anyone!!
