Reviews

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.

We honestly couldn't have hoped for a better childminder for our one-year-old daughter. Ffion started with Sarah when she was 9 months old after a month's settling in period (which I would recommend if you can manage it - more for parents' sake than babies!), and from day 1 she's absolutely loved her time with Sarah and has come home very happy and tired out - what more could you ask for?
Having not had any experience with childminders before, we weren't sure what to expect, but we certainly didn't think Ffion would have so many fantastic experiences every week - Sarah and the other childminders in her network take the kids out every day, rain or shine, to stay-and-plays, farms, parks, libraries, etc. Ffion has come on leaps and bounds in the last few months, and we know that's in no small part thanks to Sarah.
Ffion's always been a very tricky eater, and Sarah's really helped us to overcome this and not get too stressed about it.
Even though we've only known Sarah for a few months she really does feel like part of the family and we feel very lucky to have found her! Thank you :)

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!

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.
