Leaving your Child to return to work can be a daunting experience - I know because I've done it myself (I worked in the City for years when my Children were younger). I aim to make the transition run as smoothly as possible with Childcare tailored to your needs.
"My Objectives are to provide a high standard of childcare, in a safe, warm, homely and stimulating environment for children to play, learn and have lots of fun!"
I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage requirements and record your Childs progress so you are informed of any milestone or progress made.

I don’t have enough words to say what Sarah represents for my family as we all learned to love and respect her during the years.
For more than 3 years now she was always there for us and managed to model my son into the 6 years old boy he is now :-) smart , sensitive , kind , carrying , gentle, considerate funny, and just amazing .
I remember the day he went to Sarah he was barely talking :-) as he was confused with two languages that we speak in the house and now people are amazed by his posh language :-).
She always take the children places and they are never bored 😐, if they are not cooking they are drawing , or doing all of the things you as a working mom don’t have time to do .

She was my saviour for all this years and if I would have another baby :-) Sarah will be the ONE TO trust :-)
If you are a worried mum, scared to allow anyone to share some responsibilities please let Sarah help you as she is just AMAZING ❤️😍

Sarah takes and collects my 4 year old son to school 3 times a week. Within the first week that he started, he actually asked me to come and collect him later! Sarah takes such great care of the children she looks after. They are always happy and you can see how much time she invests on their education. The facilities are great, so many great toys and craft accessories. I definitely recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a childminder.

Sarah took care of my daughter for almost two years. She gives so much affection while providing fun learning experiences. My daughter never wanted to leave her to come home! Any child would be lucky to come to Sarah’s.

Thank you for your kind works x

My daughter started going to Sarah at an age of 1.5 years. She went to her for almost 2.5 years and absolutely loved going there.
We are lucky that we found Sarah as her minder. The first day we went at Sarah's house, we had a feeling that our daughter would be really happy there. Such a comfortable and homely environment she offers. Always smiling and filled with energy.

Sarah is an amazing person and offers loads of different indoor/outdoor activities. My daughter loved going to libraries, soft plays, nature trails and to many more places with Sarah. She loved baking, gardening and the list is endless.

I never had to worry about my daughter when I am at work as I knew she is in the best hands. She provides us regular updates through closed FB group and daily dairies.

Can't recommend Sarah highly enough. Really appreciate your hard work.

Sarah is lovely and I can't recommend her highly enough. She was the childminder for our baby for three months (aged 10-14 months) , and in that time provided Bella with affection, care and plenty of early years development. The bond my daughter built with Sarah is a testament of how good she is with children, and the fact that we still think of her with fondness one year on, should encourage you to see what's she's like!
