About Me

Hi, My name’s Sarah and I’ve lived in Timperley/Altrincham all my life. I decided to go into childcare many years ago when my own children were little after leaving my full time job in a pharmacy to become a stay at home mum. 18 years later I’m still loving the decision.

My Experience

I’ve worked as a childminder for the last 18 years, meeting lots of lovely families along the way. My ethos is encouraging healthy choices, positive mental attitudes, laugher and fun.

These last two years have taken a toll on children and with that in mind, I have undertaken specialist training In mental health, covering self regulation and building confidence. I find that the children open up immensely when engaged with an activity, making our baking sessions/lessons the perfect opportunity for the children to air and discuss there worries.
(Or just make some really yummy treats!)

My Qualifications

I hold an NVQ in childcare and over the years I have taken the opportunity to take advantage of the many areas of training we are offered. I’m first aid trained, hold a certificate in food hygiene and I’m up to date with safeguarding, speech and language and children’s mental health. My whole family hold enhanced disclosures. All certifications are available to view.

I work Monday - Thursday 7.00am Till 5.30pm

Friday before school drop off 7.00am - 9am Term Time Only

Below are the latest reviews for Sarah. 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.

Sarah has looked after my two children for the last 9 years, She is absolutely outstanding at the educational aspect required, but more importantly her maternal nature and care for them has been phenomenal. Both of my children have blossomed into intelligent, confident, compassionate young adults and for that we can’t thank her enough.

Sarah has gone above and beyond for our family, her flexibility with extra days and 7am starts have meant we have been able to fill our own work commitments with ease.

The children make healthy food choices and love to cook, thanks to fun cookery classes Sarah put on.

Sarah’s setting is the whole package, we highly highly recommend her.
