I have been childminding for 23 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 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.

Our daughter was looked after by Sharon for 2.25 years from early morning to early evening, starting when our daughter was 1 year old and ending when she was 3 years old.
We knew from the initial meeting with Sharon that she was the person to entrust with the responsibility of looking after our girl and we were full of confidence leaving her there on her first day. The Outstanding Ofsted rating was what initially appealed, and Sharon did not disappoint. The record keeping was great, as was the communication with parents, with daily diary entries re. activities done in the day, highlighting how they linked in with the various elements of EYFS, and sometimes with photos too.
The various trips organised throughout the week provided our daughter with great opportunity to get out and about, learning more about the world around her and providing stimulation in environments other than the home. We have seen our daughter really develop through the more individual care that Sharon has been able to offer. Topics covered in their education tied nicely to the world around us, i.e. learning about the different seasons as and when they change, how animals and plants develop, and learning about the different festivities in our country and others, as well as the different cuisines.
Sharon is a friendly, kind and approachable person but is also someone who has the right level of presence and authority to mean the foundations we set out for our daughter continued to be endorsed. With the number of hours our daughter was at Sharon’s, Sharon contributed significantly to the lovely girl that she is growing up to be.
Sharon has also provided overnight care for our daughter on some occasions, which has been very useful. Not only were we comfortable that she was in good hands, but our daughter was also very comfortable staying there, as although it wasn’t in our home, being at Sharon’s house was an environment that our daughter was almost as familiar with, and comfortable in.
Our daughter was very sad to leave 'Nanny Sharon' and the friends she made whilst there but takes with her many lovely memories and foundation blocks to continue developing at nursery before starting school.
Sharon has been taking care of my son on a full time basis for over the last two months since he was 5 months old. She also takes care of my 3 year old daughter on a part time basis. We are more than happy with the level of care provided. Sharon is very friendly and approachable she makes me feel at ease about leaving my children in childcare. She is very receptive to my sons changing needs. My son has allergies and eczema and Sharon has been very flexible in managing his changing routine. She has been very supportive and knowledgeable about his dietary requirements. We receive detailed feedback daily in a diary and the children in her care are lucky to attend a wide variety of activities on a daily basis. My 3 year old loves going to Sharon’s house and does often not want to be picked up as she is having so much fun!
Overall we cannot fault the level of care Sharon provides, she provides a home from home with a wide variety of age appropriate activities that stimulate and encourage children in her care! We are very happy ?
Our daughter has been going to Sharon's since she turned one and i was very apprehensive about settling in. However Sharon's experience made it very easy and i know she is in safe and happy hands every day.
Sharon 'nanny' has a great (and immaculate!) house for little ones, two playrooms, bedrooms for naps and a lovely outdoor space. The daily routine has been great for us and they are out and about every morning doing fun things and learning lots.
There are always fun and educational activities going on at Sharon's house and Ruby's speech is coming on well from being around the other children and encouraged by Sharon. I have a record of her daily activities every day which is so important to us to know what she's been up to.
I have felt particularly bad about going back to work, but i know that she is having a lovely time which has really helped me to relax more when i'm away.
Sharon has a lovely nature with all her children and we already feel part of the extended family. Ruby has also made some great friends and is always giggling at something when i go to collect her.
Very happy we have found nanny Sharon!
We have had our son Lucas with Sharon since he was 11 months old. He is now 3 and he absolutely adores her.
Sharon is very focused on providing the children with a loving home away from home environment, as well as focusing on providing stimulating activities both at home and at various activities locally. They're always going to groups where they play and interact with lots of other children, they go out to parks and farms when the weather is good, and when they're at Sharon's home they can be found doing anything from baking to playing in the garden.
I have been extremely happy with her care and would highly recommend her.
My daughter has been in Sharon's care since March 2014 and I couldn't be happier with the care she has received. Sharon is friendly and approachable and always keeps me informed with a daily dairy letting know what they have done that day and her eating and toilet habits. Sharon provides a great range of activities both indoor and outdoor, these include playgroups, the beach, singing and colouring. Sharon had also provides me with updates on my daughter physical and mental development. Most importantly my daughter loves going to Sharon's and is always happy to be there. I Cannot fault the level care I am going to be sending my baby daughter to Sharon's late in the year.
