About Me

UPDATED APRIL 2021 - NO Available slots. future bookings only
**DURING COVID-19 I am open as normal **

COVID-19 policies are in place so we currently stay within my home environment, mostly outdoors in the garden or the new purpose built 'Cabin'. I try to provide as normal environment as possible for little ones, whilst ensuring their safety and good hygiene practise.

I have been a Registered Childminder in the Stratford-upon-Avon area for 15 years and was a Nanny in London for 12 years previously. I live in Wilmcote with my husband Florent who is Head brewer at Purity Brewing Co. and 2 children, Jago (15) and Delphine (12).
**We are a bi-lingual family (English/French)**

Our home is set within the village of Wilmcote. We are very close to the local school, playpark, Mary Arden's Farm and canal walks. We have hens, rabbits and cats and are surrounded by fields, fresh air and countryside. I always ensure that children can experience as much outdoor life as possible, within a safe and protected environment. I also have plenty of activities to keep us busy if the weather keeps us inside or undercover.

I am able to provide daytime care for commuters along the A46( to and from Stratford, Coventry, Warwick, Leamington, Evesham, Alcester & Henley-in Arden) due to our location.
* Inspected* Insured * Police checked* * First aid trained*

I am flexible and outgoing with 26 years experience working for many different families.

I have extensive experience with twins and triplets.

Positive Parenting Advice and guidance
I am also available for advice with child behaviour issues
From new-born to age 5, I specialise in all aspects of managing child behaviour issues and give advice, one-to one support and guidance on many of the following and more:

- Sleep problems
- daily routines
- Healthy Eating
- Aggressive behaviour
- Weaning and feeding

I have various techniques that I have used for over 20 years with full success. I use many incentive programs designed specifically to each child's/families' needs to ensure good rates of success. All children require firm and fair boundaries to enable them to achieve best outcomes in life. Parenting is not easy and I hope that I am able to use my experience within childcare alongside my own experience of now being a parent in order to give the best advice of all parenting issues.

Sarah-Jain is fabulous! My daughter absolutely adores her. She was quite a quiet little girl who hated leaving my side. Within two days Sarah-Jain had her wrapped round her little finger.

My daughter has come on leaps and bounds with her shyness with all the encouragement she gets from SJ, she is so much more confident and is speaking more.

I only need to say who are we going to see today and she shouts SJ, she really has been a blessing for us. I can’t thank her enough for her sleep tips, my other children slept beautifully but my daughter has always struggled, we have just cracked her.

Amazing lady, amazing childminder, I drop my daughter off knowing she’s in the best hands.

.....most definitely the BEST in this area.

Sarah Jain offers a service like no other, flexibility in a wonderful home environment and having strong links with the local school is a huge bonus. She has an exceptional understanding of children and has provided my child with a safe place when away from home which as a parent is all you really want.

Thank you Sarah Jain for all you do for not just my child but for all the children you care for.

Our guardian Angel ! Literally can’t put into words how wonderful Sarah Jain has been with my twins! She has been a huge help to me as a single mum and together we have achieved many milestones together!
Full of life and laughter!
Sarah Jains surroundings are unique and provide plenty of outdoor activity-tv/films are a luxury which I agree with :)
Food and snacks are all healthy and varied so twins have a very refined palate!
Sarah Jain has the support of a lovely family who have been incredibly welcoming to us, and after 2.5 years we do feel very loved and “part of the family”!
Can not recommend highly enough :) x x

Sarah Jain is a very thoughtful childminder and has a great home for children to explore and play in. I liked the way Sarah rotates the children's toys every week and has a large garden for children to play in. Sarah has a lot of varied childcare experience and is obviously very committed to providing a high quality of care for the children she looks after.
