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.

Finding the perfect childcare setting for your precious little one is such a big decision, and not one I took lightly, however I was filled with confidence the moment I met Sarah, as my daughter immediately bonded with her. There is nothing more reassuring for a mother.

Hawthorn Learning Tree is a homely, safe and immaculately clean space. I often joke saying I wish I could attend as well, as each day is filled with a variety of fun activities (arts n crafts, music time or physical outside play to name a few), and the food is healthy and delicious! My daughter honestly has a ball each day.

The standout for me though is the personalised service that Sarah and her team offer. Sarah is flexible and accommodating of the specific needs of my daughter. She keeps me updated throughout the day, and truly goes above and beyond to ensure that not only is my daughter happy and comfortable, but so I am. This is a true partnership.

I could not recommend Sarah more highly. We are thrilled to have met her, and we have never looked back!

I was very nervous to leave my son with anyone when I was due to return to work. Not least because he had spent much of his first year in lockdown and so wasn’t used to being with anyone other than myself and his dad. But Sarah has been incredible.
I have seen my son develop so quickly too in the time he has been going to Sarah - he is happy and excited to attend and his day is always varied with different games and toys to keep him occupied. He goes full time and enjoys 3 nutritious meals a day in an immaculate setting, the house is always very clean and the garden is wonderful and safe. Sarah keeps me updated throughout the day which I love. My son and I and all my family love Sarah and we would be lost without her. I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Sarah has been a blessing to our family by accommodating our 4 1/2 yr old daughter to spend part of summer holidays with her.
Her home is so welcoming, immaculately clean and very well organised for the children with lots of toys and different activities to keep them occupied and engaged in play.

Our daughter has Autism and Sarah has had an amazing approach with her by being attentive to her needs and knowing how to avoid triggers. It was a joy for our daughter getting ready in the mornings knowing where she was going and being so happy!

Sarah has a natural gift of caring for children and a lot of experience. She's a wonderful person and would highly recommend her services.
Excellent communication and always on top of providing updates during the day of how your child is doing.

Sarah is a fantastic childminder, my 1 year old is excited to go in the mornings and is in good spirits when I pick her up, which as a parent is so reassuring.

Sarah has a friendly and positive attitude. My daughter attends full time and gets given three nutritious home cooked meals a day and lots of activities to keep her busy. Sarah keeps me updated during the day which I really appreciate.

Hawthorn Learning Tree is really homely, is always immaculately clean and is kept very safe for the children. The garden is wonderful and enclosed so the children can play in it all year and Sarah has lots of toys which my daughter loves!

I had been worried about nap times but Sarah's gentle approach worked wonders with my baby who previously only slept in the pram or being fed/rocked. I'm glad I sent my daughter to Sarah as she's been accommodating to my daughters routine and dietary requirements.

Thanks for doing a brilliant job Sarah!
