About Me

Hello, my name is Sarah. I am married and we have a fantastic eight year old daughter. We have lived in Fetcham for fourteen years now. I love the community in Fetcham, it’s such a family village and a great place for our children to grow up in. We have a lovely child friendly house, with a secure garden. I have a open planned kitchen/diner where they children will be cared for and will have a range of toys and activities to suit all ages. I will follow the statutory framework for the early years foundation stage and keep a record of this for your child. I will have many planned activities at home to help each child work towards knowledge, skills and understanding. We will attend play groups and National trusts & visit our local parks. All children will be provided with a healthy meal and snack, and will be encouraged to help prepare these with me. This experience gives the children a opportunity to try new food and a sense of achievement at meal times. Telling their friends they helped make dinner!
My previous career, I was a makeup artist for thirteen years and specialised in bridal makeup. I then followed my dream to work with children after my daughter was born. I have worked at two pre school’s as a pre school assistant and had my own key children. I was also a childminding assistant, which i absolutely loved and made me choose to start my own childcare business from my home. I also work as bank staff at my local pre school in our village. It has been such a privilege to care for all of the children, it’s so rewarding to watch them grow and to have been part of their learning journey.

My Experience

I have worked at a forest nursery and was surrounded by a wonderful team that taught we so much valuable experience with early years. I also have worked at a local pre school and was very proud to be part of the opening of this pre school. Both my managers were childminders with 18 years experience, they again taught me so much. Working as a childminding assistant was also very valuable to my career. It’s given me another experience, as we cared for babies from 8 months to older children up to age 11 yrs old. We would do activities at home for all ages and during school holidays we had plenty planned and always had so much fun. Here are a few things: outings to the beach, National trust, parks and museums and more.
