About Me

I am a 37-year-old father of two children, happily married to my wife who works as a Physiotherapist. I have a wonderful family including our four-year-old daughter and two-year-old son.

My Experience

Until recently I have had a long career working in bespoke furniture design. However, since having my own children, I have gained so much pleasure from being with them, nurturing them and helping them to learn and develop in creative, playful and imaginative ways. I soon realised I have an affinity to work with children. I love the fact that children seem to gravitate towards me when we are at soft play, swimming or at the park.
I am fun and imaginative yet caring, understanding and patient. I will provide exceptional quality of care and teaching to your children in a stimulating and safe environment. I look forward to watching the children develop and also forming good working partnerships with you, being fully understanding of and experienced in the challenges of working when you have young children and entrusting them to someone else's care.
We live in a newly renovated Victorian end-terrace on a quiet road, in the lovely village of Hepscott, just outside the town of Morpeth. The village is easily accessible without having to go through any busy towns, and is only a five minute drive from the A1. There are some pleasant country walks in very short distance from our house, which may of course also involve splashing in muddy puddles!

We've had two years with Sam now, what a find! My son looks forward to his days and loves playing with his children; sometimes at home but often outdoors. One less thing to worry about!

We are hugely impressed by the professionalism of Sam’s service. What a great male role model for our son:)

We get regular updates and photos of their adventures delivered to a private WhatsApp group. We’ve been using Sam for well over a year now and he’s never let us down.
