About Me

Hello my name is Sam Cadwallader,
I am 36 years old and a mum to 4 children aged 17 years to 5 years. I got married in 2012 to my husband and best friend of 18 years.

I used to work at West Minster Primary School as a carer / teaching assistant. I worked there for 6 years and have gained loads of experience working with some amazing and challenging children. I did day to day physio and daily medication as well as one to one or group work.
I am paediatric first aid trained.

I have done all the training required to become an ofsted registered childminder and continue to do so.
I live in Bellflower Avenue in Minster on sea.
I have a very clean and tidy home with a good size back garden where the children can run a round and play.

I have a driveway that you can safely pull on to, to drop your child/children off to me.

The idea of leaving my 4 month old baby with anyone other than myself was a dreadful thought to process. However from the moment we met Sam and her husband, we knew that our son would be in the best hands. Now 6 months old, he is thriving in her care and there is not a morning that goes by where he doesn't greet her with the biggest smile! She is a remarkable childminder who will do everything she can to ensure your child is safe, developing and enjoying their time with her.
Sam’s expertise doesn’t just stop at the children. As a first time mum, Sam has provided me with so much confidence and advice on countless topics, such as weening and teething. Sam, her husband and her children are a wonderful family and any child would be welcomed into their home like they are family.

Really cant recommend Sam & Paul enough!
My son (2) has been going to their home for a few months now and I was really struggling with getting him to eat most foods.
Lately he has been eating foods he would have never even gone near before all thanks to Sams patience and perseverance.
He is learning soo much there and absolutely loves it!
A lovely family and im soo grateful for all they do

I was instantly put at ease with Sam & Paul and their setting. They put immense effort into the care they provide along with the activities and learning facilities for the children. They truly are, a blessing to have care for our son. We are the lucky ones to have found them. We can only highly recommend. Xx

Sam has had my little girl from 6 months old and she is wonderful. Keeps me up to date with my daughter's progress and what we can do to work together with any stages such as the 9 month separation anxiety that goes on. My little girl is happy turning into such a wonderful toddler. You can see her eyes beam and her smile when i drop her off. That alone is a testament to how good Sam is. She treats her like her own family. Cannot recommend her enough!

My daughter started going to Sam when she was 6 months old. She loves her time with Sam and has come on leaps and bounds. Sam and her family are wonderful - caring, kind, nurturing, respectful and always communicative with me around my daughter and how she has been, her needs etc.

I was incredibly apprehensive about using a childminder however as soon as I met Sam I knew she was right for us. I cannot fault her in any way, my daughter is safe and happy with Sam within a loving and positive environment. I am so very glad we found Sam!
