*Able to offer the government funding from age 2, 3 & 4 for 15 and 30 hours per week free government funding

My name is Sarah, and i have a 12 year old daughter. I've been childminding 11.5 years

I offer a loving, caring, home from home environment, and hope to work really closely with you to ensure your child gets all the care and support they need to nurture them, and develop them as confident individuals. I encourage good manners, good behaviour and high self esteem, to ensure your child becomes confident and independent, and provide lots of cuddles and laughs to make sure they are happy.

we do free play, and focused play, all age appropriate, trips to the park, the beach, farms, and play centres. Arts, crafts and singing. We have constant singing and dancing to encourage learning in ways children love. story time is fun, and interactive. we grow caterpillars to butterflies, and learn about the world around us all the time. As they grow, I teach phonics, and name spelling, writing etc so they are ready for school. I encourage self care and independence, such as getting dressed and shoes on, and toilet training.

we have themed days/weeks for things like world book day, scarecrow walks, and we raise money for charities by doing sponsored dancing, or age appropriate challenges. we celebrate a diverse range of celebrations like Chinese new year, Easter, and festival of light etc and encourage diversity and inclusion in all aspects. we celebrate birthdays with a party and cake, and a Christmas party with a visit from father Christmas.

I have 2 purpose built playrooms, as well as my lounge area for play, various areas to sleep, a garden and a large kitchen.

I am in regular contact throughout the day with you, using whatsapp, with updates and photos, and If your child is under 5, i provide the EYFS curriculum, that fully supports your childs development until they go to school. I am excited about being a part of your childs life, and i take great care, responsibilty and pride in doing this to the best of my ability.

I follow the same OFSTED rules and regulations as a nursery, in every way, with the main difference being I provide care in my home, and there are less children. My ratios are in line with ofsted rules whether I am alone, or if my assistant is present.

My Experience

12 years. youngest baby other than my own has been 6 weeks old.. up to 14 years.

My Qualifications

I am an ofsted registered childminder, with my recent inspection achieving good (july 2019)

I have a clear and recent dbs check.

I am fully insured.

I have up to date paediatric first aid qualification

I have 1 assistant, dbs checked, first aid trained and insured.

I am a member of the local childminder support group INCA. (ipswich north childminding association)

I have level 3 diploma in childcare, peaditric first aid, food hygiene and safe guarding children awards. I have completed the EYFS course, and have completed the observation course. I also completed a confidence and well being course, and living with babies course. I attended a course focused on a positive approach to behaviour, and being two is special. I recently attended a course focused in developing children's speech and communication skills, and makaton.

I also have lots of non childcare related qualifications, such as a nvq level 3 in retail,

I have 9 GCSE's all graded A's to C's, to include A in English, and C in maths.

I have 2 A'levels in geology and environmental science.

Grade 5 piano, grade 4 theory of music.

We had a less than desirable experience putting our son into Nursery and had never fully considered the alternative of a childminder in a more intimate setting.

We found Sarah on this childcare website and her list of glowing reviews was encouraging. We visited her and a number of other providers, but got a sense of warmth and a homely feeling from her that just felt like “when you know you know”. Sarah was accommodating at short notice and her availability worked well for us.

Within 6 session, our son was doing drop offs with no tears and he would say Sarah’s name all week long. We absolutely love how informed she keeps us during the day with photos and videos of him playing and learning, and it’s very reassuring to see him so happy and hear him talk about her at the end of the day.

After a short period of time she’s helped and encouraged him to do other things and progress his development and he is clearly comfortable around her.

We really feel like we made the best decision for the whole family to send our son into her care. We would do it all again tomorrow and we’re really happy with our choice.

Sarah is the best!!! And Amy as well ☀️! My little boy it's almost 2 years old and it's going at Sarah since 11 months.
I'm really happy that I choose Sarah to take care of my little boy.
Matei loves Sarah a lot and all the things what he is doing over there.
He is very happy and having a good development.
It's really helping us at this stage when he needs to receive a proper guide to grow up 🙏🏼
I highly recommend Sarah ❤️🌸🙌🏼!

Sarah and Amy have been looking after my son since he was 11 months. He was a lockdown baby and had never been left with anyone. Sarah was very reassuring updating us regularly with how he was getting on. Plenty of cuddles were given when he was particularly upset for the first weeks which really helped me knowing he was being comforted. He's been going for 4 months and is very settled. We have really noticed he is much more sociable and less wary of new people now. Sarah is always able to offer advice and her and Amy are very friendly.

Being a covid baby my son was unable to mix with other children so when starting with Sarah he was very nervous. Since being in Sarah's care his fears have gone and I've seen him learn to communicate with other adults and children, his confidence has grown and his really developed. Sarah has always been kind and updated us on everything and I can see her and my son have really bonded. Her assistant Amy is also lovely and always friendly. Would recommend
