Sarah has helped my eldest come on leaps and bounds with speech, confidence, eating and being so much better with her attitude.
They’re always off out on fun adventures, she always sends pictures and videos of the children’s days out and how they’re doing with activities. My daughter is always begging to go each day and loves Seth the dog! He’s amazing around the kids. Sarah is wonderful at being accommodating for my needs of not driving and understanding why my daughter is always coming in with bumps 😂

If you ever need an amazing child minder, Sarah is your lady! I couldn’t ask for anyone better for my child and she always ensures they’re having fun and their best interests are at heart

My little boy joined Sarah age aprox 10 months, he has been with her for almost a year now. I can not tell you how amazing the setting is. My older son went to a nursery setting and had not done half as much as my younger son does with Sarah. He is so excited every morning to go in and see her, and when I pick him up he is so excited to tell me what he has been doing (in his own words!).
She updates me everyday with what he is doing/done. She even supports me and gives me advise when I ask! Although she works mon-thurs she always answers text any day and time!. I never thought I would go for a childminder.... but I can honestly say I go to work knowing that Sarah looks after my boy as if he was her own. His speech and learning is Miles apart from my older child who went to nursery! Thank you Sarah x

my daughter has been with Sarah from 9 months old right up to starting school this September. Sarah is an amazing childminder.

I can't recommend sarah enough. The kids absolutely love coming to her. They thrive being with her. They are always out and about doing fun activities and meet up with other childminders for play dates. She has helped my daughter come on leaps and bounds and has made sure she is ready for school.

Sarah has been nothing but outstanding during these difficult Covid 19 times. Being classed as a key worker my daughter has attended all the way through. She has made sure that the children are safe and well looked after.

I can't thank Sarah enough for everything she has done for us.

She will be missed alot when my daughter goes to school.

Both of my children have been lucky to have Sarah as their childminder from age of 1 year to starting school. Both have enjoyed going, learning through play and making friends. Sarah does a lot of day trips to various places which children enjoy a lot. I have always felt they are in safe, caring hands with her. Sarah is accommodating and flexible with hours which has suited us perfectly. I have recommended her to all my friends.

My son has been with Sarah for the last 2 & a half years since starting at 10months of age. Sarah has nurtured him & encouraged him from learning to walk, talk, potty train to currently writing his name & numbers. He has developed so well thanks to Sarah's help & support & he loves going there.

Sarah encourages lots of out door play & brilliant creative crafty activities. Everyday is a new adventure with a different place to go & occasionally meets up with other childminders which has helped develop my little boys confidence & encouraged him to learn to play & share with others. My little boy loves being outside in the fresh air, learning about nature with Sarah. She is imaginative & creative which she encourages the children to be as well as educating them.

Sarah has been an excellent support through COVID-19, continuing to provide childcare for us (as both myself & my husband are key workers). She has ensured a safe environment has been available for all involved & continued to nature our little one's emotional wellbeing at this difficult time.

We feel extremely lucky to have found Sarah & would highly recommend her to anyone looking for childcare. Our little boy has thrived & we feel so happy to know that he is safe with Sarah & having such a great time each day. We love the daily updates via whatsapp & always feel very involved in what our little one is doing.

My 2 sons attended from age 1 and 2 until starting Pre-school at 2 and 3 1/2! Sarah has been amazing for our family and the only reason boys no longer go is due to relocating to London.

Sarah is brilliant with children, she is amazing at maintaining boundaries and helping children to develop emotional intelligence and learn to share.
She encourages creativity, imagination and is always creating brilliant creative craft activities as well as learning and educational skills. She also gets them outside, in touch with nature and for this whatever the weather.

The boys have become more independent and get themselves ready and enjoy learning new skills such as putting shoes on, doing up zips and tidying up! They have thrived being at Safehands their social skills have really improved.

Every day they are off out. Either tobthe park, the woods, waterways museum, cathedral, soft play centres, farms and a variety of activities plus meet ups with other childminders.

The boys confidence, speech, language and social skills have really developed since being with Sarah and we are really pleased at how much Sarah does with them and how happy they are. They love going and always tell us of what they have done. We also love the what’s app photos and updates and feel very lucky to have had Sarah and are so sad that we are moving away!

We would 100% recommend Sarah at Safehands Childminding and would encourage you to contact ASAP.

Many thanks The Lock Family. Xxxx

Sarah provides a fun, safe and stimulating setting. My daughter absolutely thrived in the 2 years she spent with Sarah. They are given so many brilliant opportunities including lots of craft activities and trips out to the library, local museums and the airport. They are encouraged to practise writing, reading, numbers, time and date, cutting - in a completely no-pressure, informal way, during fun activities, which was brilliant for early development of these skills.
They often meet up with other local child minders and their mindees which gives an additional opportunity for socialising in a slightly bigger group; great for confidence building!
Sarah is caring and friendly and the children love her. My daughter still talks about her all the time, even though she’s now at school (just), and she enjoys going back for half term play dates with her old friends there!
Loved the daily feedback via WhatsApp photos and an end of day chat, so I could see what my daughter was doing. I miss that!

My daughter attended from age 2 until starting Reception. Sarah is excellent at setting boundaries and ensuring children learn to share and consider others feelings. She encourages children to develop skills and do things for themselves, using scissors safely, tidying up and to be independent, putting on own shoes, jackets. Every week they visit somewhere like the docks water museum, Slimbridge wildfowl centre, strawberry picking, soft play centres, parks and playgrounds plus lots of meet ups with other childminders and their children so children are well prepared for being in larger groups at preschool or reception class. Overall I 100% recommend Sarah at Safe Hands Childcare.
