About Me

Level 3 qualified
Emergency Private Nanny

I now work as a Private Emergency Nanny for a specialist private health care provider, my availability grid is on a week by week basis .!!! Booking is available at very short notice & months in advance.

I have years of experience including children with with Aspergers, Autism Spectrum disorder, ADHD and behaviour modification & have achieved great success working with parents and public and private schools to help diagnose and treat many children with behaviour issues.

Ascot, Sunningdale Maidenhead Wokingham, would be perfect.

I'm very flexable and I am happy to fit around my families needs and requirments. I love children, enjoy cooking. I'm in good health, hard working and fun. Children love me and enjoy spending time with me. I am a happy, fair, artistic, kind, caring, loyal and trustworthy. I adore children and enjoy playing with them teaching them and find looking after children very rewarding. I think its also important to give children some structure and help and guidence with behavior and manners as they grow up. All my children have learnt to read before attending school and I enjoy teaching as much as they enjoy reading. I believe in praising children and rewarding all efforts made.

Sara looked after our 1 year old in a temporary 6 week placement, while I was in the home, and he completely adored her. Sara is extremely professional and made sure our son's days were filled with all sorts of enriching activities. Sara is a fantastic teacher and was constantly finding new ways to convey information to our son. She was always willing to lend a helping hand by helping me with ad hoc chores/projects and staying late even if it meant changing her own plans:) We highly recommend sara and if we needed a full-time nanny, would hire her in a heartbeat!!

Thank you so much for your kind review.

Sara is a fantastic nanny! My daughter took to Sara straight away and they have built an amazing connection with one another. Phoebee felt safe and happy and Sara took amazing care of my child. They had lots of fun with the activities that were undertook. Overnight stays were brilliant too and my daughter was so settled and felt like she was at home. We have stayed in touch since and in the future I will continue to use Sara's services if I need too. She's not just a nanny but an amazing woman who does the best for the children in her care.

Thank you so much for your review.

Sara looked after our two girls after school for nearly three years (they are now moving schools) and has become part of the family. Sara is kind, reliable and caring. She has helped us at a moment's notice when the girls have been ill and has always been more than accommodating and willing to help. Sara has kept the girls engaged with undertaking a range of creative tasks and helping with their reading and writing. The girls and we will really miss Nanny Sara.
