About Me

I am a nanny with 29 years experience and fantastic references. I am mum to lovely 19 and 7 year old boys called Aaron and Archie. I am loving, honest, loyal and hard working, I also can be extremely flexible. As I nanny I try and create fantastic long lasting relationships with the whole family and not just the children in my care.

My Experience

I have 29 years experience as a nanny, with all ages from newborn up to 13 years I particularly enjoy babies and toddlers and really love the bond you can create. I have lots of lovely references, a DBS check, first aid certificate and a clean driving licence. I am very experienced also with many shares.
I have had experience in sleep training, weaning and potty training and enjoy craft sessions and sensory play that sets children up for nursery and school environments.
I have also now entered the maternity newborn nanny world and would love to continue this, so anyone needing a good nights sleep and a break from their little one/baby (we are all human ) please drop me a message to discuss further.

My Qualifications

I completed 18 months of the NNEB but sadly due to loosing a very close friend to cancer I didn’t complete.
I have a current DBS
I have a clean driving license I have held for over 20 years.
I have completed many first aid courses.
I am happy to complete further courses.

My Availability

I am available for most overnights with newborns/bad sleepers (respite cover )
I am available Wednesday and Thursdays from January 24 as an established share.
My 7 year old son is at Forestdale primary school so I do have a school run. However I can do school pick ups as I already have cover for these days.
I have some availability for school aged children through the summer break. Please message me for more details.

We have had the pleasure of having Sarah help with our 7 week old preterm baby at home. After many nights of no sleep we reached out and she has been exactly what we were looking for - someone to be loving and cuddle our lovely baby! She is a highly competent Nanny with an innate natural ability with babies. It is clear Sarah loves babies and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her as a night nanny if you are needing some respite or some guidance

Sarah is a wonderful, caring nanny who takes great pride in getting to know children as individuals and working out how to encourage the best from them. She has been amazing with my 3 and 7 year olds and they are always excited to see her - the kids love her almost as a family member rather than a nanny. There are always games and crafts and fun things to get excited about when Sarah is around, and she has a great sense of humour and fun. I was delighted that she has such a love of animals and likes to share this with the kids she looks after. She is extremely experienced and good natured and knows exactly how to deal with pretty much any situation that could arise when nannying. Major meltdowns have been negotiated with patience and calm and she is clearly really happy to be in the company of children no matter the situation.

She has been incredibly helpful, flexible and kind in accommodating the unusual hours that I work and is super reliable, not to mention being a really lovely person who you would feel happy for your kids to share time with. She is really active with the kids and likes to take them out for walks and activities that really stimulate their minds as well as tiring them out, also very respectful of different parenting methods and happy to treat the children just as I would like them to be treated. She is very helpful and flexible about helping with school pickups and bringing the children to classes and has sometimes looked after my kids overnight.
Sarah is a really special nanny and I can recommend her completely!

Sarah started looking after our daughter when she was one years old, and honestly, has been a complete lifesaver!

I was incredibly nervous leaving her with anyone at the time (having spent most of her life in lock down and us having minimal family locally, she was very attached to me, and vice versa!) But Sarah made the transition really easy and comfortable.

She's since become like family for Ada, and an absolute rock for our whole family, helping us out in some really tricky times.

Her experience and just general knowledge about kids is amazing! She's literally diagnosed ailments faster than doctors have managed to, and has been able to offer advice around every developmental leap and transition we've gone through.

We have baby number 2 on the way now, and it's super comforting going into it this time knowing that we have someone I trust impeccably to look after our children!

We met Sarah when our son was one year old. She came to our rescue as we had little help & both needed to work. Nursery hours didn’t always fit in with our schedules so we really needed flexible help.
We went on to have a daughter & Sarah cared for both our children & continues to do so. They are now 8 & 6!
Sarah is incredibly flexible with the varying times we have needed & gone above & beyond with helping us eg picking up from different locations & more complicated arrangements. She also responds quickly to messages, waves her magic wand & sorts out the childcare crisis of the moment!
She takes our children on trips & to interesting places & clearly enjoys her job.
For us she strikes the perfect balance of being in charge with the kids (they know who is boss!) but also companionate, kind & loving.
I would wholeheartedly recommend her.

Sarah has cared for my 2 year old son for just over a year. She began nannying for us at our home as part of a nanny share with a good friend. Now my son has begun nursery she looks after him for half a day at her home as well as other occasional adhoc childcare.

Sarah has fitted into our family wonderfully, we really couldn't ask for more! Sarah is proactive, warm, helpful efficient, prompt, always has brilliant tips, has the biggest heart and will always go the extra mile.

Our son absolutely adores her and sprints to the door with excitement on Sarah days. Sarah always ensures he has a fun filled day and is always coming up with seasonal or creative activities for them to do together such as painting, pumpkin making, poppy printing, crafts, trampolining, playgroups. We really appreciate the one on one care and undivided attention that he receives, I would not hesitate to recommend Sarah she is a superstar :-)
