Sarah looked after my son R (17 months) from August 2014- December 2014, 4 days per week.
I have been extremely happy with the care R has received. Sarah very welcoming and my child settled in very quickly. Sarah has a wide range of toys and equipment in her house for a wide range of ages to keep children entertained. Sarah also has engaged R in lots of different activities in order to keep him well stimulated. For example R was engaged in many Christmas crafts, has been taken to different toddler groups, been engaged in water play and has been taken to soft play areas.

Sarah has demonstrated a good understanding of child development and has encouraged R to gain age appropriate skills, such as encouraging him in his walking and helping him learn to put on his shoes. Sarah is very warm in her interactions with R and got to know his emotional needs well, for example giving him long hugs after his afternoon naps. I have found Sarah to be positive in her approach to managing children's behaviour however has also been appropriately firm with R so he has a clear understanding of appropriate behaviour.

R has loved being in Sarah's care and has also benefited from the interaction with Sarah's lovely children when they aren't in school. Sarah has been flexible and understanding as a child minder and has been very reliable, for example has not had a day off sick the entire time I have had R in her care. Sarah has kept up good communication with me through a diary and has also been good at responding to text messages and phone calls during the day when I have needed reassurance.

Having withdrawn R due to having another baby I would have no hesitation in recommending Sarah as a childminder and would definitely use her again for my children's care.

I have Sarah care for my daughter. I wanted to say that I have brilliant experience and confidence with Sarah and her family. They make me feel welcome as well as my daughter.
I have noticed a big difference with Sarah than my last minder, Jasmine is happy going to Sarah and enjoys her stay, playing with children. Sarah takes my daughter out regular to groups, parks etc.

I can speak to Sarah if I ever had any concerns, queries or for ideas.
I get regular feed back from Sarah on daily basis and I know what my daughter has done for the day. I can honestly say that I feel confident with Sarah and her family give the best possible care at all times.

Sarah provides regular actives with the children from painting, playing with toys, to music toys, reading etc. I would recommend Sarah to anyone and I would provide an excellent reference on the services I have received by Sarah.
