About Me

I have been an ofsted registered childminder for 16 years and have 3 children of my own 4, 12 and 15 My last ofsted grade in july 2013 was Outstanding and i am a member of NCMA i am also registered for childcare vouchers I offer a homely enviroment and the resources available at home are age appropriate toys for example duplo, lego, puzzles, books, dressing up,art and craft materials, pc access and lots more. The safe and secure garden has a climbing frame, slide, pop up tunnels, sand table, balls and a range of ride on toys. on a regular basis we go to toddler groups, the park, and other places that they can experiance the world around them. During school holidays we visit a range of educational and fun places like langleybury farm,strawberry picking, Blake end maze, Hatfield forest, Great notley park, the beach and lots of picnics to name a few. I work closely with two other childminders so children have a good opportunity to socialise and i have cover on the rare occasions that i am ill or on holiday. I will provide positive gender, religious, cultural images where every child is seen to be unique and special in their own right. Your child's personal,social, intellectual, emotional and educational needs are paramount concern to me and i strieve to let children develop into confident, healthy and positive individuals and i try to be very flexible to meet parents requirements.

I cannot fault Sarah, she has been great with my son Ellis over the last year. He absolutely loves going there and we have no doubt that he is in safe hands whilst we are at work.

He gets on really well with all of her children as well as the other children Sarah looks after and often doesn't look back when we drop him off when he sees a glimpse of them!

He gets up to all sorts of fun and thoroughly enjoys all the different activities Sarah entertains him with. It's great that Sarah takes him to see friends with other children and to toddler groups. Ellis also gets to play outside as much as possible, which he loves, especially their slide!

I trust Sarah with Ellis 100% and I couldn't be happier leaving him in her care. Sarah is flexible and realiable and has helped us out a few times without hesitation.

Overall, an excellent Childminder!

My daughter Keira has been going to Sarah now for almost 1yr.

She loves going and when shes there they go out to Groups,Cook,have messy time,go to play parks,picking Strawberrys,play in the snow and go to pick the kids up from school on the sledge, Swimming on a Friday, just everyday fun things.

Sarah is great with Keira and Keira has formed a very good relationship with Sarah and Sarahs own children. She gets on great with all the other children Sarah also looks after.

Sarah is very reliable and flexible and I have found that she puts herself out to cater your needs. She has not once fallen poorly whilst Keira has been with her.

I trust Sarah with Keira and I know when im at work Keira is in safe hands and is a very happy girl.

I wouldnt rate Sarah just as good but excerlent and would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a childminder in Bishops Stortford.

So please go to visit Sarah and see for yourself what a great women she is and how happy her children are in her care.
