About Me

Hi my name is Sarah , I am a single parent to 3 children, jordan 18 ,Adam 16 and Amie 13 years old. My kids love having other children here and are more than happy to share their time and toys with other children. I live in a lovely village called Rowhedge and spend alot of time with the kids in the local woods and down on the marshes. The kids would rather be out and about rain or shine and the local park is at the top of my road.

I have a 7 year old black labrador called Chloe who is very good with children but i keep her separate from small children, I also have 2 cats who have been handled by my childminding kids from the day they were born so they are very good with kids. All pets are used to having kids around and having tails pulled and being dressed up !

My Experience

I used to be a qualified nurse in London and i was a Sister on a regional neurological rehabilitation unit dealing with head injuries. I loved my job in london but at the age of 3 Jordan became very ill with Meningitus and i left this job and we moved to Rowhedge so i could spend more time with the children.

I have had a number of jobs all child care related since then, i used to be a child minder, assistant in a boys childrens home and a dinner lady at the local school.

I have been childminding for the last 6 years and my business now seems to be rapidly expanding. Alot of my children have come to me through word of mouth as the village is quite small and parents chat about childcare. At present i still have some spaces available

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and am a member of the Morten Michel, my business is known as Tiny Treasures Child Care.I was graded 2 years ago by Ofsted and received the grading GOOD which I am very pleased with.
