About Me

I'm 38. I have 3 children. I live with my partner, my two children 12 and 17 two dogs, and an army of other animals which complete our family.

My Experience

I have been working with children and families for 15 years. I started volunteering at a stay and play group. I did this for 7 years, during this time my passion grew. So I gained my level 3 in childcare. I graduated the day after I gave birth to my youngest child. Following this I worked in a private day nursery. I wanted to go one more so I finally I found my calling
In childminding.
I offer an array of experiences for the children to learn and grow. From activities within the home and garden. to exploring the world around us. We go to the library twice a month, go to weekly stay and play groups. As well as enjoying the beautiful outdoor spaces eg Cotwall End Nature reserve and Baggeridge Park. The children take part in educational trips and ones just for fun.

Below are the latest reviews for Sara. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

I cannot reccomend Sara's childcare enough to anyone who is looking for a setting which is home from home environment and your child receives the 1-2-1 support to achieve the best of their ability. My daughter has been going to Sara's childcare from 11 months old and is now 3 years old. Anyone who meets my child is surprised at how advanced she is and this is down to the tailored support she receives from Sara's childcare. My daughter jumps for joy on her days at Sara's childcare which as parent is such a relief. For any parent who is looking for a setting that supports your child become the best version of themselves, then Sara's childcare is the place to take them.

Our boy has been with Saras Childcare a year and half now and I cannot recommend the two ladies enough. From a anxious first time mum we was left with nothing but warmth and a atmosphere we felt we would be comfortable leaving our child in. Our son settled in really well and we can see how much his developed in the time being in these ladies care. He has came out of his shell. Sara has always been open and honest and approachable. She is supporting and you can always feel at ease.

You both are amazing and all the children in your care and parents think highly of you. Xx

Thank you B for your lovely review.

Sara and Sarah are amazing, our little boy started with them at 9 months and I’ve seen a massive difference, he has come on so well. He is walking and talking and it's all thanks to the support they provide.

The love, care and support they give to their children is outstanding. We wouldn't want our little boy with anyone else!

We chose Sara's childcare as they were so warm and welcoming we were instantly put at ease and our little boy made himself right at home. They made my return to work so much easier as I wasn't worrying about leaving little one with them. We also love the updates and pictures we get while we're at work of our little boys adventures 💙

We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for childcare 🥰
