I'm Sarah, I live in Thornton le Dale with my husband Andy and my two boys Sam and Ollie.
Prior to childminding I worked in Accounts and Health and Safety, however in 2013 after the birth of our second son Ollie, I decided to step out and into childminding.
As a parent I had very strong ideas of what was important when looking for childcare and so began my journey.
I am Ofsted registered and was graded Good at my last inspection.
I regularly evaluate my setting to keep my facilities and practices fresh and up to date and provide parent feedback forms to help me fully meet the needs of the families I care for.
I hold a Paediatric First Aid certificate and Level 2 Food Hygiene. I also hold the relevant Safeguarding training certificate.
I regularly attend CPD courses to further my knowledge, some of which include Speech and Language, Autism Awareness and Behaviour Management. I am currently reading a book on attachment disorder.
In 2016 I expanded, and two days a week have been joined by Rachael, who is my assistant.
I have Public Liability insurance and Employers Liability insurance. Both myself and Rachael hold up to date DBS checks.
