Sarah started looking after my very shy and inhibited 14 month old little boy in September! He was very wary to leave me at first but I credit her with making him a much more confident and sociable little boy - she has been amazing and I am so so glad I found her! She has helped me out with half terms and in between times & I literally cannot thank her enough...her and her daughter Charley are strict, fair, caring and amazing! I cannot praise them enough - I would recommend them in a heartbeat 🥰
