My son started his first day at school today and is no longer under Sarah’s care .
I am truly gutted he won’t have this lady’s and families influence in
His life Any
More on a regular basis .
Sarah and her family looked after my son Stanley for 3 years . He was treated as a member of their family and was loved and looked after like a family member .
Stanley loved going there and always had a variety of trips and educational days out that are too many to mention . There is one to one care when needed and he also had the benefit of playing with other children of other ages . Sarah’s home has a lovely friendly feel and you are made to feel at ease immediately .
Sarah is reliable and nothing was ever too much trouble and she and her family always went above and beyond anything you can call a job role .
Thank you for nurturing and education my child when I wasn’t able to I will always be truly great full for the care he has received .
Stanley had dietary needs that were always followed and respected .

My daughter has been with Sarah since she was 10 months old she is now 3. Sarah and her family have been brilliant with her. i honestly cant fault her. from the moment i met Sarah i felt comfortable her house is lovely and very child friendly they have lots of toys to play with. Sarah goes above and beyond for the children she takes them to play centers and the park and even been to the sea life center. sarah provides a daily diary which makes a great read when you get home from work to see what they have been up too all day when they are not able to tell you.
sarah will cater for your needs and help you out as much as she can she is brilliant. my daughter will miss Sarah when she starts her new adventure at school.

My son has been going to Sarah for two years now and he loves it. I am very happy with the care that Sarah provides. Sarah goes above and beyond and we would be lost without her! I would highly recommend Sarah to anybody!

Sarah has been looking after my 18 month old for 6 months and we have been really pleased with the care she has provided.
Sarah's home is welcoming, clean and homely. When Ellie first started, Sarah was really happy for me to spend time with her there and to introduce her slowly to being left on her own. Ellie is always happy to be left with Sarah and obviously enjoys her time there. She has been involved in lots of different activities such as playgroup, soft play and trips to the park along with all the toys and activities at Sarah's house. Ellie has a daily diary that gives me more details about her day, but Sarah also always has time to talk to me at pick up and drop off times.
I have been very happy and would definitely recommend Sarah as a childminder.
