About Me

Hello my name is Sarah. I live a 2 minute walk to Darrick Wood infant and junior schools. I am an ofsted registered child care provider and subscribe to a yearly updated DBS certificate for your peace of mind.

Within my home I have a dedicated playroom with lots of toys, puzzles, games, books and arts & crafts. I also have a spacious garden with play equipment.

Prior to becoming a childminder I worked in a pre-school, so I have years of experience with early years.

I am able to offer a home from home experience with plenty of activities within my home but also outings on a daily basis to parks, woodlands, farms, soft play and nursery groups.

My aim is to provide a safe, stimulating and happy environment where both your child and you are happy.

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

My 5 year old has been going to Sarahs for almost 2 years now and we will never regret sending him here. Sarah is loving, caring and compassionate but also no-nonsense, fair and firm with the kids. She is really helpful and easygoing to deal with as a parent and keeps me informed of everything they are up to with lots of Whatsapp pictures and updates to reassure when you're at work! She does the Darrick Wood schools pick up and drop off and always takes time at the end of each day to chat the parents and keep them up to speed with anything that's been happening in her setting, however small a detail. Elliott liked to come home with helpfulness stickers and other little takeaways from time to time and during lockdown when we weren't there she kept in touch and chatted to my son. I'm sure he will be coming here for years to come.

Sarah is wonderful. Right from the very first minute we met her my daughter bonded with her and we just knew that Sarah was the one for us! She creates a warm, safe and welcoming family environment for the children in her care.
My daughter always looked forward to the days she was with Sarah and couldn't wait to get there, she had a great time playing in the garden and playroom or just chilling out and reading or chatting with the friends she made there.

I felt that Sarah always had time to communicate with us about our daughter, she is organised, reliable and helpful with parents and a great support.

Sarah honestly became an extended part of our family. My daughter was with her for 3 years during Primary School for pre and post school sessions and the only reason we left is that we moved abroad this summer (2020) otherwise we would have been with Sarah for the next 3 years!

We completely recommend Sarah if you are looking for a safe, loving, caring, fun and welcoming home.

Sarah has made the whole process of finding a child minder very easy. During our first meeting with Sarah she was very welcoming, gave us lots of advice, and our son seemed very comfortable with her straight away. Since starting with her, she has continued to be very helpful, and our son has a great time each day.

Sarah is a wonderful childminder and is someone I trust completely. My two children settled in very quickly and absolutely love going to her. Sarah provides a very warm and welcoming environment and has lots of different activities available for the children. Her attitude is caring and kind but can be firm when needed. She always has time to communicate with the parents and give feedback on the children’s time with her. I feel like we have fallen on our feet finding sarah and having been using her services for the past 18 + months, I can honestly say there is no one I’d rather send my kids to.

Sarah looks after my 15 moth old and I am very very happy with her professionalism and kindness.
I was so nervous about the whole thing seeing that this is my only baby and he's only been around family, but she cares for him like her own.
He is happy and stimulated in a safe environment, this is the best thing a mother could ever wish for.

I am pleased to have found her and I am positive that with her help my son will grow into a little star with good manners and great social skills.

Thank you Sarah x
