About Me

Available for ad-hoc babysitting on evenings/weekends.

Hello Parents! My name is Sarah, I am 30yrs and live in Woodford.

I have 11 years professional experience in childcare (0-16yrs), 2 of which have been in nannying. I currently work full time in a Primary School, therefore I’m only available for ad-hoc babysitting and no longer available for nannying.

My experience includes work in schools, private day nurseries, private nannying and I have a Degree in Early Childhood Education & Care (Level 6 Qualified). The majority of my experience is caring for children in the Early Years (babies, toddlers, preschool ages). Please see my detailed experience in the section below.

I have a clear up to date DBS which gets updated annually and Paediatric First Aid. Please see my other childcare qualifications in the sections below.

I am a very down to earth, approachable and nurturing individual with a fun & caring personality. I have a passion for working with children, building their self-esteem and watching them thrive!

I do not drive but I’m happy to walk and get local public transport (following Covid measures ) where needed. I have previously worked with other families based in Woodford, South Woodford, Wanstead & London.

I am a non-smoker.

I love animals so have no problem being around pets in your home. I live in a house with pets (just to let you know encase your child has allergies). I am vegan but have no issues preparing balanced non-vegan meals for your child/children.

Below are the latest reviews for Sarah_M. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

I have 3 sons age 9, 6 and 2 and Sarah has cared for them over the last 9 years since my eldest was a tot. She has a natural flair and positive attitude with the children and they all have bonded with her beautifully. She is always punctual, reliable and with her experience can manage a variety of situations, my boys certainly aren’t easy! Trusting someone with your children is paramount but I feel completely confident when they are with Sarah that they are in good hands. I recommend her to everyone.
