Sarah was extremely professional and allowed time prior to us leaving to ensure Gion was comfortable. Gion is on the Autism spectrum and nonverbal, but Sarah and Gion instantly connected and she was great working with him. Sarah kept us up to date / sharing photos, etc which helped put any nerves to rest. Sarah is extremely reliable and I would highly recommend Sarah!

Response by Sarah on 28/09/2018:

Thank Jared you you are a wonderful family with a great son

Sarah is a lovely, caring person. She looked after our little boy from just after turning one until two-and-a-half years old. Three days a week for some of the time, and sometimes four days.

We wanted a comfortable and homely place for our son and found it at Sarah’s. She takes the children out and about each day, either to local parks and groups, or on trips further afield, such as to museums and the theatre. She keeps us up to date with what they are doing.

Sarah is part of an informal group of childminders in Highbury who get together regularly. Because our son has got to know them all well, this meant someone he knows was available to help if for the odd occasional reason Sarah wasn’t. Everything has turned out to be reliable and flexible.

We have been absolutely delighted with it and if we have more kids they will be straight onto Sarah’s list.

Our son started with Sarah over a year ago and she has always been absolutely amazing. She has so much energy and does so many fun and varied activities with the children every day. She has a very warm and personal approach and really helped us to support our son with the arrival of his baby sister, moving house and most recently, preparing him to start nursery. She’s always been fantastic about listening to our concerns and provides great advice. We have always felt so safe and reassured leaving our son with her and he has really benefited from such a homely setting. We couldn’t have asked for a better childminder and can’t recommend her highly enough.

Thank you for leaving a lovely review

Happy to say that having Sarah as my first babysitter ever was a pleasure. Great with my kids and they took to her very well. Very friendly and warm, liked her from the moment she walked through the door and I felt at ease leaving them in good hands. Thank you Sarah.
