Below are the latest reviews for sarah Childminding. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. 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.

We had been using Sarah for 12-18 months but personal circumstances regrettably caused us to have to leave.

Sarah is a very friendly, warm and loving person and is always open about having a chat with any concerns or advice you may need.

She daily did other activities like going to the park, play areas, walks, mums and toddler groups, meeting with other Childminder’s to further my sons interactions with other children. I felt my son came on leaps and bounds in her setting.

Sarah is very flexible in her hours and communicates very well and in advance if there are any issues her end.

I would fully recommend Sarah and would have no hesitation in contacting her in the future if needing help again with childcare

Sarah is a wonderful childminder and makes u feel at ease. My daughter loves being at Sarah's and loves the different variety she gets there. she is always happy when I collect her, Sarah is very informative about her day and I like the fact that's Sarah does a diary for each day. Her two boys are fantastic with my daughter and they all play nicely together. I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a childminder in the area

As a first time parent I was reticent to leave my 7 month old daughter to return back to work. I looked at a few options and eventually selected Sarah's Childminding to care for my daughter. I am very pleased that I did because this is an environment where my daughter can play and learn at her own pace.

I thought that a childminder may not offer as much stimulation as a larger nursery but I was wrong. The children enjoy a variety of activities including walks, trips to the park, toddler groups, singing, stories as well as a variety of toys.

Sarah runs a professional business and I feel confident in her abilities to care for my child.
