About Me

I have two children of my own, I have a 16 year old boy and a 11 year old girl and decided to become a childminder so I can be at home to care for them and be able to do the school runs whilst doing a job I love. Working in childcare is the most rewarding job there is.

I have a play room for my child-minding which the children love as there's different areas such as messy, quiet, art etc.....

Below are the latest reviews for Sam. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Sam has been looking after both my son’s full time since they were around a year old. Since they started I could see them adjusting to her setting with ease and playing well with the other children. She always warmly welcomes the boys into her home, they often try to run straight to the playroom without saying goodbye, it’s like they are extended family! It is quite literallly a home from home setting. My son’s have really taken to Sam, she has been there every step of the way to support their development, and they have come on leaps and bounds since starting. I would be lost without her. Sam is an absolutely fantastic childminder, I would have no doubts in recommending her. Anybody who uses her setting should consider themselves lucky.

My son has been going to Sam since he was 9months old and it has been the best thing for him !
He settled well and has grown in a lovely little boy!
He is loving the pets and all the various activities they do (painting,walks,outdoor play etc etc)

I would def recommend Sam ! My son absolutely loves going to hers !
