About me

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.
