After several experiences with poor childminders I came across Sarah through a recommendation and was the best move I ever made. My daughter always has the best days going for walks where they go park and feed horses and favourite activity waving to the cars from the bridge to see how many beeps they get, trips to costa, charity shops and even MacDonald's for treats. Indoor play is full of fun activities, and she loves movie time before home time where they often get all the blankets out and cuddles with all her amazing friends. Being a fussy eater I worried about her but Sarah took the time and asked me what she would eat and has since found new favourites being there. I can talk to Sarah about any concerns and know I will be listened to. I have made a new friend in her and know she will always have a special place in my daughters heart (and mine) for truly caring for her when Mum and Dad are working which makes 'Mum guilt' less of an issue. Finally Sarah always shares photos of what they have been doing
