"A wonderful childminder"
review of Sarah J - Childminder in Surbiton
A wonderful childminder
Sarah is a remarkable childminder and our boys have been enriched so much from being in her care. Sarah looked after my eldest boy for almost 2 years up until the age of nearly 3, and my youngest from the age of 6 months until he was nearly 1. We’ve moved out of the area and so have had to find new childcare for that reason, but would have taken Sarah with us if we could have!
Sarah provides a warm family environment with plenty of space and activities for little ones. Very quickly my boys felt completely at ease there just as they do at home. The dedicated playroom is fantastic and there’s a great open space living area the children can also use, plus good size garden. Sarah takes the kids out to toddler groups, playdates, walks in the park etc, so they’re never bored. They also really respond to her because she's both caring and a lot of fun.
During the settling in process Sarah was very reassuring and helped put my mind at ease with photo updates and generally lots of empathy. My eldest has learnt to say please and thank you and Sarah reinforces learning through practising counting, colours, reading and lots more.
Sarah’s own children are sweet and well-mannered, a credit to her and Vince. I felt that Sarah genuinely cared for and showed affection for our kids and I always completely trusted her to keep them safe and happy. I really couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
