my fee does include any drinks the child need whilst with me. however i do ask that you provide their snacks,lunch and dinner. I attend term time groups and have days out during the holidays. Fees include term time activities but If we attend days at the zoo etc.... I will make a charge for the child's entry but I will always inform you before we go well in advance. I do not work bank holidays or weekends.

I highly recommend Sarah is amazing at what she does, she is professional, flexible and very caring, my little boy Jacob was with her for a long time the bond they shared was amazing. Sarah was not only Jacobs childminder but friend, she was his safe place, he loved going to sarah’s house, I had daily feed back on how Jacob was getting along, they did so many day trips and outings which Jacob loved, nothing was ever an inconvenience if I needed To extend my hours sarah was more then happy she was very flexible, Jacob has now left and started pre school but we miss her lots and hope she does very well in the future I definitely highly recommend.

Sarah is a fantastic childminder my son was so happy to spend his days with her. She not only looked after my son really well but she worked with him with writing his name and number work. I was able to read what he had done daily in his journal and leave messages and information for Sarah for her to read the next day. She is extremely approachable if I ever had any worries and was even flexible enough to have my son extra hours when I was promoted at work. My son has now left Sarah as he starts full time school next term they had a little party to say bye to him at the park which he loved. Thanks Sarah for the last year x

I was a Police Officer looking for someone special and right to look after my Daughter when I returned back to work.

I met many potential child minders but when I met Sarah Smith I knew she was the right one. She made me feel at ease, was happy and eager to meet my needs and was flexible in regards to covering my shifts.

My Daughter is now nearly 4 years old and Sarah has been a big part of her life and is classed as a family member.

Sarah has a lovely group of children who all play wonderfully together including her own Son who my Daughter looks on as an older Brother.

She takes the children to the park, play barns, has a huge variety of toys and activities for children of all ages and takes them out on day trips. Things like making Mothers Day cards, cakes and Christmas gifts are amongst many activities Sarah does with the children and the things my Daughter and the other children adore. She also sometimes keeps in touch by sending picture messages on my iPhone showing me what fun things my Daughter is up to, which always puts a smile on my face.

Sarah is thoughtful, looks after the children like they are her own, is very approachable and friendly.

I would recommend her services to anyone.
