About Me

Hi,
I am an Ofsted registered childminder in Rustington. I have worked in the childcare profession for the past 20 years . In this time I have gained NVQ level 3 childcare qualification, OCN Maternity Practitioner's Award and CACHE level 3 Diploma in Home Based Childcare.
I am also a qualified teaching assistant, specialising in special needs and have qualifications in child psychology, counselling and CBT therapy.

We live in 3 bedroom house with safe, enclosed garden.

I am extremely reliable, trustworthy and patient and have boundless amounts of energy!! I thoroughly enjoy taking children to the farm, beach, soft play, library, music or pre-arranged groups but am also happy to provide age appropriate activities within the home, such as painting, baking, reading,collage making and playdoh always ensuring a safe, fun environment to learn, develop and play.

I believe part of my role is to provide nutritious home-cooked meals for your child / children and will provide a balance diet. We have a small canvas greenhouse in the garden, children are encourage to water, plant and maintain the greehouse as well as picking and cooking the fruit and vegetables.

I strive to do well in all I enjoy and therefore undertake regular training to ensure your child received the highest standard of care.

I believe effective communication is vital in childcare so all children I care for have their own daily record book stating activities undertaken, toys played with, food consumed etc. I also devise a portfolio for each child which will include regular observations (approximately one a month) and a 'next step form' created by Ofsted to ensure the correct care is given for your child's level of development and to maximise their learning.

In my spare time I enjoy card making, reading, swimming and zumba.

I have 4 wonderful children aged 10,7, 4 and 2 years. It's a busy, happy house full of love, fun and laughter. If you would like your children to be part of it please do not hesitate to contact me.

My Experience

Sarah looks after my son after school three days and he is always happy when I pick him up. Sarah is always cheerful and calm and I know that my son is in good hands with her. I would definitely recommend her.

Sarah was our childminder for our daughter Louise from the age of 8 months until 15 months, when we enrolled her in our local nursery. Sarah was always very helpful and our daughter really enjoyed her time with Sarah.

I organised babysitters for the hotel reception of my wedding and Sarah was one of them. She arrived early and was willing to help with whatever was needed. She understood that I was very busy and didnt have time to explain everything to her so used her initiative and hepled out in the play room until she was needed. She babysat for my brothers children and he informs me she was fantastic. I would not think twice about asking Sarah to look after my children again in the future
