About Me

Hi, I'm Sara, 37 years of age and I am an an Ofsted registered childminder in Larkfield. I am first aid trained, hold a level 2 food hygiene certificate, I have completed an OU Openings course in 'Understanding Children' and am a qualified teaching assistant. I have as assistant, Millie and an apprentice, Bobbie who both work with me. We all have current DBS's.

I live on a quiet cul de sac on the Poets estate in Larkfield, we have a dedicated playroom which we work from.

I offer home from home activities such as arts and crafts, dress up, music, cooking and home corner. I encourage outdoor play and in my garden I have slides, swings, water table, trikes and scooters. I take the children on outings such as walks to the local lakes, to the park, childminding group and soft play.

I enjoy and lead a healthy lifestyle. I run a minimum of 4 times a week and enjoy being active. I do a lot of baking and general cooking. All meals are generally homemade.

I enjoy the company of children and the pleasures they bring, but most of all, I would like the children to have enjoyed themselves and want to return to a safe, fun home from home environment.
