About Me

My name is Sharron and I am 49 years old. I am an Ofsted registered childminder who has been graded 'OUTSTANDING IN ALL AREAS' in March 2015. I live in the village of Stoney Stanton with my partner, 14 year old daughter and 10 year old son. I have a spacious detached house with a lovely landscaped garden which is next to fields and is very peaceful. It has been made into a small sensory garden with lots of fun things to experience.

I also own a gorgeous friendly and playful 2 yr old Border Collie as well as 5yr old Bichon Frise. They have their own dedicated, fenced off area in the garden although they also spend a lot of time in the house but again with limited access to the whole house. They love going for walks and playing ball and especially loves the children or anyone who is there and wishes to play with them and give them fuss.

I accept childcare vouchers as payment of fees and am also Nursery Education Funded, so i can provide the free 15 and 30 funded hours to eligible 2, 3 and 4 year old children.

I have my own transport with full driving licence since 1987 and we enjoy trips out to fun and educational places of interest.

My Experience

I have been a registered childminder since January 2006 and have 2 children of my own.

My Qualifications

I have completed and hold certificates for the full level 3 Diploma in childminding, along with paedriatric first aid, safeguarding, food hygiene, and promoting acceptable behaviour. I have also completed several courses on the Early Years Foundation Stage and a few sessions of Makaton sign language

My Availability

Generally I am available Monday to Friday, subject to your individual requirements. I can offer meals if required, unless you prefer to supply your own food.

If you would like to come and visit for a chat, then please contact me and I will be happy to help. I hope you like what you see and want to be a part of our lives.

Sharron has looked after both of my children and they absolutely loved their time there, Sharron used to take my eldest daughter to school and my youngest all day, her care is the best around, my youngest daughter was very funny with different people at first but settled straight away and even asked to go on weekends, she had lots of fun trips and outings over the years, as a family we were very sad to say goodbye but will remain in contact forever, Sharron became a friend not just a childminder! Sharron goes above and beyond to accommodate the children. The learning journey Sharron provides is amazing, full of pictures, comments and art work that you can treasure forever! Sharron and her family are amazing! It’s definitely home from home, I would recommend to everyone!

Response by Sharron Ward on 05/10/2020:

Thank you for your lovely words Amie. I am missing you all already 😢. Definitely will stay in touch xx

Sharron has looked after our children, aged 9 and 6, for 5 years where she provided a safe and happy environment for them to be whilst we were at work.

During this period of time, my son was diagnosed with both a peanut allergy and also a gluten intolerance. This did not phase Sharron who not only was already epipen trained but also willing to adapt menus so that he could enjoy the same meals as the other children in her care.

The children really enjoyed the time that they spent at Sharron's and we are most grateful for all of her support during the early years of the children's schooling.

Our daughter has been with Sharron for around 2 years and we could not be happier with what she does for our family. Our daughter loves Sharron and her family (including the four-legged members!) and my wife and I get on extremely well with her too. She is very down to earth, professional and straightforward to deal with and all her communications are very clear and efficient. The setting (her house) is clean and tidy and very well set up for the children. Sharron is fantastic with the children as she has a great personality and she is always finding fun things to do with them. She is not one of those childminders who makes the children fit in around her life, as Sharron makes the children her number one priority and fits her life around them. We feel so lucky to have found Sharron and to have secured a place with her for our daughter as I know she is in high demand and such places are like gold dust. If you are looking for the perfect childminder, look no further!

My daughter has be going to Sharron since Feb 2014. As soon as my daughter entered her house she felt instantly comfortable and was able to leave my side and explore(something she rarely did elsewhere).
Sharron has always supported and aided my daughters development. She provides fantastic every day care, but also the activities and trips provided I feel have brought my daughter on even more.
Sharron's learning journeys are also something to be admired. It is great to see all the things that my daughter has been doing when I am not around, with pictures and photographs. The detail in them is fantastic.

I would defiantly recommend Sharron to anyone looking for childcare. Sharron is more than just a Childminder. My daughter absolutely loves her.

We moved from using another childminder in the village during the summer before our daughter started school. What could have been a traumatic time for our daughter turned out to be one of the best summers ever. It is testament to Sharron that our daughter settled in so quickly and without stress.

Sharron is brilliant with the children and provides a top notch service. She is approachable, supportive, organised and provides a safe haven for the children to have lots of fun. During the holidays Sharron always has lots of activities planned and she thinks outside the box! Last summer she took our daughter to the park regularly... Visited the Coventry Motor Museum, Conkers and West Midlands Safari Park.

We've been using Sharron's services for two years now and I've got no hesitation in recommending her as the perfect person to trust with the welfare of your treasured children whilst you are at work. She is the best!
