About Me

Hi my name is Sharon,From September 2021 I have availability for Wednesday and Thursday. I received and retained my outstanding Ofsted inspection in October 2019 under the new Education inspection framework which lasts 6 years.I am married to Tom. We have 3 grown up children, my youngest son is 28 who works in London. A daughter of 38 and another son of 34 which I am very proud of. I offer a home from home environment often being described as a" day time mummy" to many children. I have recently moved to Horley , on the edge of Langshott. I am friendly and very approachable, I am very reliable. We go out most morning to toddler groups, inside soft play areas( The Arc, Adventureland ,Holmbush Farm, Mini Mayhem, Meadowbank etc.I have memberships to a wide range of outside activities ie National Trust, Hever castle to which we visit regularly.
I have a dedicated playroom and large garden with Wendy house .I have a wide range of resources for both inside play and outside play. I am a member of Nut field Priory Health club health and diet are very important to me and general well being.
Also in July 2012 I became a very proud nanny to Alfie in May 2016 a grand daughter Madison and May 2019 another grandson Charlie.
After deciding not to go back to work my daughter has also registered a childminder and now works in Horley, this allows us more flexibility for the children and babies we have.

My Experience

I have been childminding for 26 years and love the company of young children. I have a wide range of childminder friends to socialize with as well as going out every morning. I do a daily diary for babies and often send photos to parents during the day. We visit the beach, farms,zoos, airports and local parks.I am double vaccinated for COVID 19.

My Qualifications

I undertake regular training during the year , taking advantage of all available. References are available and phone number of children which are on the current roll. I hold a current first aid certificate. current child protection courses. My family are CRB checked. In June 2013 I passed my CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Children's and young People's Workforce. I have just received" an Outstanding" in my last Ofsted grading in October 2019 which is valid for 6years.

My Availability

I have 2 vacancies from August 2021 . My hours are 7.30am to 6pm but again these are flexible. I am able to offer over night care on an occasional basis.I currently collect and take home to Redhill 3 days a week.

Would give her 10 stars if we could!
We have used Sharon for the last five years for both our girls and were so happy we found her.
She has a wonderful home setting with toys, games and a lovely garden. She takes the children on regular outings - getting them out and about everyday.
They grow in confidence with her as she takes time to focus on the needs of each child individually.
She is super kind, fun, organised…and our girls absolutely blossomed under her care!

Thanks Lindsay the girls are lovely, we will stay in touch I'm sure the girls will flourish at school .x

We were very careful when picking a childminder for our son. As soon as we met Sharon our search was over.
The first thing we noticed is that she is very professional, warm, genuine and caring.
Our son was only 8 months old when he brought him for the first time and so we needed to be sure that he would be in good hands. Sharon totally exceeded all our expectations. Our baby daughter is now at Sharon’s as well and she is super happy. Sharon has a beautiful home with a lovely garden to venture into in summer and an exceptionally stocked playroom. She truly focusses on developing children’s practical as well as emotional skills and engages with them in inspiring activities and frequent trips to parks, libraries, playgroups, gardens or farms. Her care is so amazing that no nursery or school compares.. We are so lucky and spoilt to have you Nanny Sharon!

Both our daughters went to Sharon from the ages 1-3, she looked after one or the other for almost 5 years and we could not recommend her more. The girls absolutely love their Nanny Sharon, she really became part of the family.

Sharon gave them both such lovely experiences with trips to the farm, beach, park and soft play. They were always out and about every day and when at home always playing with different activities or puzzles, water play, messy play or baking and crafts. They learned so much and had so much fun.

Sharon has always been great with advice for the kids from potty training and fussy eating so has been a massive help to me too. Her setting is always clean and tidy and she is so great with the kids. My girls made some friends for life with the other children in her setting and also her grandchildren who they love to play with when they can.

Thanks Meg it’s been lovely working with you and Ross raising two lovely little girls. See you all soon x

Our daughter has been with Sharon for the last 2 years and we are so happy that our second daughter will start with her next month.

When you return to work, finding the right child care is so daunting, but with Sharon we just knew from the start, our daughter would be in safe and loving hands.

Not only is her home a wonderful place for kids, with a dedicated play room and lovely garden, she also takes the children out nearly every day, which has been fantastic for our daughter. Whether it’s nature walks, visiting National Trusts, soft play on rainy days, the benefit of getting out and about and experiencing the world is invaluable.

It’s absolutely no surprise that she has an outstanding OFSTED report. We would recommend her highly to anyone!

From our daughter: I just love Nanny Sharon. She makes me happy :)

"Nanny Sharon" has looked after our son since he was 9 months old when I returned to work and we are now heartbroken to be leaving as we are moving house. I feel very lucky to have found Sharon and doubt there are many people who put their heart and soul into their work like she does. Sharon has a wonderful set-up and playroom in her home which is always spotless (I don't know how she does it) and provides a welcoming place for the children in her care to explore. Our son was also taken on multiple days out each week to exciting places whether that's the farm, soft play or a National Trust property, so much so that we did feel like we were missing out on all the fun! I always had absolute confidence that he was in the most capable of hands with Sharon and always knew his wellbeing was put first. We would get daily notes in his journal finding out about what he had done/learned that day which really helped make sure we felt in-the-know at every stage. Sharon really does things by the book and his development was keenly assessed and nurtured during his days with her so we always felt confident that if there were ever any concerns they would be picked up on promptly (which can be very reassuring for first-time parents). The only issue with Sharon is she really has set the bar too high and I doubt we'll ever find someone quite like her again! Sharon, we will miss you dearly and can't thank you enough for taking such wonderful care of William! Thank you!!
