About Me

Ofsted Outstanding Provider Logo

I offer a 'home from home' environment for the children I look after. I have a large enclosed garden with various garden toys. Children can enjoy arts and crafts, and music time.

We spend plenty of time outdoors visiting local parks such as Alice Holt Forest and Frensham Pond. This provides them with opportunities to explore nature and become interested in their environment. I ensure the children have the opportunities to interact socially and learn through play.

I live in Farnham with my family...husband, two children aged 15 and 13 years, and our dog Tess and puppy Maisy.

Sharon has looked after my son and daughter three days a week since they were 11 months old; they are now 4 and 2 years old. She is a professional, caring and calm individual and has provided my children with a safe and nurturing home environment in which they feel happy and cared for.
Sharon provides the children in her setting with a variety of carefully chosen toys and it is obvious they are learning through play; this is enhanced through her conversation and thoughtful questioning. She takes them out daily to local toddler groups, playgrounds as well as meeting other childminders so providing them with a variety of experiences in which to develop. Sharon has got to know my children as individuals and will then taylor make activities to interest them, she identifies targets and next steps regularly and works towards helping them to achieve these. Sharon always welcomes me and my children with a warm friendly smile and provides me with a 'Daily Diary' about their activities.
Ultimately my children are happy and enjoy the time they spend with Sharon, making my return to work easier.

My Daughter has been going to Sharon's for a while now 2 days a week and always has a fabulous time and settled in really quickly. My daughter goes to the same school as Sharon's children so they are of a simlar age. My daughter always eats well and looks forward to her next visit. Thank you Sharon so much for your help.

Sharon looks after my nine-month-old two full days a week. Leaving him so young was never going to be easy but Sharon has made the whole process so much more bearable - she really is a home from home and my son has settled in so well and loves his days with Sharon.

When I drop him off and pick him up he is smiling and I can see how well they both interact together and that he is happy and enjoys his time there.

Sharon is always smiling - she is a positive, calm and happy influence and looks after my son in a way akin to my own parenting, offering him consistency. Her home caters for children brilliantly and my son loves being around her own children, learning and watching what they do as a positive influence.

Sharon looks after my six year old daughter before and after school two days a week. She is reliable, calm, always smiling and my daughter is always really pleased to see her. Every time I have visited her home is immaculate and there are always cool toys out for the kids to play with.
