About Me

I am a happily married mum of two sporty teenagers who love everything to do with two or 4 wheels.

I have over 10 years childcare experience.

We live in a three bedroom house with a beautiful garden around furzton lake. We have a wide range of toys available and I love taking children out and about throughout their day. Our newest member of the family is Jessie - our cocker spaniel who is over 2 now. She is very playful and adores the kids. She accompanies us on most of our outings.
Animals and plants are such a good way to teach responsibility and a caring attitude.

I am a native german speaker. We are a multinational household: I am Austrian and my husband is South African. I am very open for children to learn languages and if your child talks English as a second language I will do my utmost best to give your child a good head start of learning English. I will also try and incorporate your child’s language as much as possible.

My oldest son has Autism spectrum disorder and is high functioning. He is now in year 9 in a mainstream school and is doing really well. So if you are worried about your childs communication progress I am happy to help and introduce strategies and techniques to help your child's development in a fun and motivating way.

I am working closely together within a group of 5 childminders. We are planning outings and craft activities together as well as messy play. Your child will be looked after well and have a good relationship to all of us and learn important social skills within a group of children from early on. We are very outdoorsy come rain or shine and meet regularly in the woods surrounding MK (Rushmere or Salcey), at Willen Lake by the Peace Pagoda, Ampthill Great Park, Whipsnade Zoo (yearly membership) and Woburn Safari Park (yearly membership), playgroups, softplay and lots lots more. On Fridays our favourite activity is a music group called Char char chimps.

Within our group of 5 childminders who we see once or twice a week I work very closely with Helen and we do 4/5 days something together either here in MK, Northampton and the places as mentioned before. On too wet and cold days we organise activities within our homes for all children to enjoy.

I do not accept 3/4 year old funding as my business is not sustainable at the hourly rate offered by the Local Authority.

All activities and outings I offer are included in the price.

My Experience

I have over 10 years of experience with working with children under 5 years old. I enjoy every single day being with and around children. To see a child smile and be happy is the best thing in the world to watch.

I have two boys myself and am used to a busy daily schedule. We love being outdoors and out and about exploring new playgrounds and use all available activities in MK and surroundings.

In my 10+ years experience I have looked after children of all ages - from newborn to 14 years old.

I have also finished my level 3 diploma in childcare.

Sabine is great! We're over the moon with the developments we've seen in our boy since he's been with her. We've had him with her for 3 weeks now and we get constant updates on WhatsApp and photos. Most days there are activities/trips organized and to be honest even if we wanted to do it ourselves I don't think we'd have the energy. This is doing wonders for our little one, he's becoming more social, developing his motor skills and having a lot of fun. We've had some settling in sessions and they went well, even though for the first week Thomas was a bit unsettled when we were dropping off, she always made sure to make him as comfortable as she could and he would become calm again (we could tell from the photo-updates). One thing I really love about Sabine is that she's very attentive to health and safety and we've so far not had the lil one bruised or sick so a massive kudos on this front (you all know how kids can be :)) ) She's as well been understanding with us not really being super on the dot with coming in on time and we do appreciate that.

All in all, I would recommend Sabine to anyone and everyone. Thank you once more for being a wonderful childminder and taking good care of Thomas!

Bine has been great with our daughter, shes been seeing her for 18 months now and loves every day of it.

Great setting, she gets to interact with different toys, books, plays both indoors and out and has wonderful trips to meet other kids too.

She’ll support your child’s development in any way that’s important to you, our little one was refusing to wear a bike helmet, I took the helmet to bines and with 48 hours we don’t even ask, she knows it has to be done and brings it to us!

Bine is a fantastic childminder. From the moment we left our eldest son with her, aged 2, we felt comfortable. He adored the pets and playing with Bine’s kids. It truly felt like a second home for him! Everyday Bine plans interesting activities for the children such as day trips to the zoo, music groups or bug hunts in the park. As a parent I really appreciate her communication - we are sent pictures throughout the day and given updates via an online platform. That being said, Bine is always happy to answer any questions at drop off or pick up too. When we had our youngest we had no doubts that he too would love going to Bine’s. He has settled in quickly and it has been such a smooth transition. We would recommend Bine to anyone looking for childcare.

Our daughter had been with Sabine from 9 months of age and has since just kept developing and constantly flourishing so beautiful in Sabine’s care. We couldn’t have ask for a better person to look after our daughter as she is constantly doing such wonderful activities with the kids, outings but more so the care she has for all the kids is so lovely to see.

She makes wonderful snacks for the kids at an extra cost which is a huge bonus with having one less thing to do and the snacks she provides are fantastic. The play room is constantly rearranged with new themes for learning and exploring. Her two boys are just absolutely amazing too with our daughter and our little girl loves her boys to bits.

We honestly feel like we hit the jackpot with Sabine and couldn’t be happier.

I left one of the earlier reviews here back in 2019 and 3 years later we are still here! My youngest is now 3.5 and goes to Bine’s twice a week and my eldest (who is now at school) attends for a couple of days during the school holidays to still get her Bine time! My youngest is just as happy here with Bine and her family as my eldest was and enjoys the variety of activities, crafts, days out and trips to the bike track! I’m a big believer that it takes a village to raise a child, and we’re so lucky to have had Bine as part of our ‘village’ for the last 5 years! :)
