About Me

Currently have no availability!!

I am an Ofsted registered child minder graded 'GOOD'
l live with my husband who is from Sweden & our two boys who are 13 & 10 yrs old. (TN4)
High Brooms station is just under ten minutes walk.
Before becoming a mother I worked for Karen Millen at their Canary Wharf store as an assistant manager.
I am very outgoing and social and like to meet with other childminders to make sure the children in my care get out and about as I think the 'social element' is very valuable to their upbringing.

My Experience

I have been looking after children for eight years.
Experience as a mother of two boys.

In our setting we have a large enclosed garden with a trampoline, out door toys, a wide range of toys, books, puzzles.
Regular visits to local toddler groups, parks, library & play dates with other chilminders, walks to woodlands, cooking and baking is part of everyday life with me and the children.
It is important that children eat healthy and I ensure that they get varied selection of fresh home cooked food accordance with dietry requirement.

I really enjoy working with children and I feel my home setting would provide a safe environment for your child.

Sally has been looking after our two young boys aged 15 months and 4 years for the last 8 months. Sally is a dedicated, warm and professional person and is a highly competent childminder.
My children are happy and well looked after in her care, and my 4 year old always looks forward to Sally picking him up after school. I cannot recommend her highly enough, my mind is at rest while I am in work and I have complete trust in her.
It isn't difficult to see why all the children in Sally's care absolutely adore her and her family.
We will continue to use Sally as our childminder for the forseeable future.

Sally has been looking after my two boys aged 7 and 5 years since i took the difficult decision to return to college and work a year ago. This was hard for me but Sally has made the process so much easier.

When my boys are with her i know they are safe, loved and cared for. Sally has become like a second mother to my boys and is one of the only people i feel comfortable leaving them with. I recently told my eldest that i was going to pick him up from school and he was disappointed!

I would strobgly recommend Sally as an excellent childminder who always has the childrens interest at heart and provides a safe loving environment for them to be cared in.

Sally has been looking after my son for the last year and a half and I can honestly say she is an absolutely fantastic childminder. My son Charlie totally adores her and often says when he is leaving her house "love you Sally!!".

Sally is a very able childminder who has gained a lot of qualifications but also has a wealth of experience with children. She has a lovely nature and is brilliant with babies, toddlers and school age children alike. As you can imagine she is very adaptable both to the childrens and parents needs and has always arranged to help me out when things change at short notice.

She has a great house for childminding and a fabulous garden which Charlie loves playing in... whether it be in the sandpit, on the trampoline, on the swings or just playing on the grass with the other children.

Inside they also do loads of activities such as drawing, painting, arts and crafts and cooking. She involves the children in many different activities which are both fun and educational.

She has great behaviour management skills and the children all know where they stand as she is both consistent and fair.

I would HIGHLY recommend Sally as my son has always been happy at hers
and I couldnt ask for a better childminder.

We employed Sally to care for our children for 18 months.

We found her caring, professional and dedicated to the needs of our kids with an added bonus of much needed flexibility when those unexpected commitments came up.

We highly recomend her.
