About Me

Hello, my name is Sara - OFSTED OUTSTANDING CHILDMINDER, and I am the Owner/manager of Park View Childminding, We are an Ofsted Outstanding childcare setting , located in the Thornes area of wakefield with access to all of our amenities such as Thornes park, Wakefield one library and Museum, The Hepworth gallery, toddler groups and a soft play centre, as well as the beautiful rural walks around pugneys water park. I am a qualified nursery nurse with experience of working as a nanny and in school. I have 3 grown up children and I am an OFSTED registered childminder, also registed with Pacey a professional body that is for all childcare workers. I am situated area very close to The Thornes road area of Thornes.

I have training in paediatric first aid and my food hygiene certificate as well as training in food allergens and training in the safeguarding of children.

Availability- full day Space available on Tuesday and Wednesday from September 2019, as children are due to move on to reception class in full time school.

We also have a waiting list that's free to join.

Contact us to arrange a visit and check whether you qualify for a funded childcare place with us.

Our ethos is that children learn through play, in a happy and caring home from home environment where they are nurtured and supported, to enable them to develop to their fullest potential. I work in close partnership with parents and carers to get to know your child, and I record each childs development and progress as an individual child and this information will be shared with parents and carers at regular intervals, in our termly childcare reviews. The reviews are a chance for us to chat and talk about your child and their care, as well as their progress. I am a friendly and approachable professional with your childs best interests always at heart, and I always welcome working in partneship with you to provide the best care for your child.

I provide fantastic food menus and balanced nutrition with home cooked meals.

My husband who is OFSTED registered, is my assistant, after being an early years reception teacher for 27 years, as well as an early years moderator for Wakefield education authority. He has two degrees in early years and is an excellent teacher who will be able to help get the children off to a good educational start before they begin their formal education at school.

We have a close working relationship with our LA early years team and we often deliver early years training to other childminders out of working hours.


I am an approved Local Authority provider of funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year old children and we also offer the 30 hours funding subject to eligability and space.

My OFSTED registration certificate and DBS certificate are available to view when you visit us.

I welcome visits with you and your child to my setting to meet for a friendly chat about your childcare needs, so please dont hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Cannot credit Sara enough. I was very nervous moving from one childminder to another as my son was very nervous in new situations and cried everytime I left him.
I had none of this with Sara, from the first few introductions and settling in sessions we had no tears, my son loves to go now and looks forward to seeing the other children and all the activities he knows he will be doing with Sara.
Sara is brilliant with my sons allergies, keeps up to date with any healthcare issues he has and has become a great support for any other issues my son has.
Recommended to all my friends looking for childcare and I can highly recommend to anyone in the area.
