About my home

My family, especially my 6 year old daughter, are excited to welcome children and their families to our home. My home nursery covers all aspects of learning, and I love creating activities, like small world trays, puppets shows and outdoor fun, that enable children to learn and develop. Raising my daughter has been my main experience with children. She has grown from a baby to a happy, confident child, and my aim is to help all children in my care to achieve this.

Unique highlights

Daily Art and Design activities

I studied fine art and love sharing this passion with the children. Children often have a new artwork to take home at the end of the day!

My Home Set-up

I have a designated playroom with library and soft reading area, a role play zone and large garden with 2 floor playhouse. And don’t forget the sensory turtle! Messy activities take place in the kitchen and the lounge has construction toys and a puppet theatre that turns into a cosy napping place.

Two friendly cats

I have two friendly pet cats who have grown up with my daughter. Learning to care for pets is a great way to help children become responsible and empathetic to the needs of others.

Healthy Meals

I follow a low salt and sugar diet and enjoy trying new recipes using good ingredients.

School Drop Offs and Collections.

I walk my daughter daily to The Gatton’s infant school and can offer a drop off and collections service.

Ready for School

My previous career was in management and training and I have helped many progress in their jobs. I have also been through the process of starting school with my daughter and understand what the children need to be school ready. I can help with hand strength, numbers and phonics.

Through our partnerships with Walker Books and the National Literacy Trust, our childminders run creative activities around a wonderfully diverse range of books.

My house is at the top end of West Street, near London Rd.

We are within walking distance of Burgess Hill town centre, the library and the train station for trips to Brighton or Hayward’s Heath. There is a town bus stop a few doors from my house. St. John’s Wood Park and Fairfield Recreation Ground are at either end of the road for outdoor fun and lots of bear hunts. Twice a day we will be at Gattons infant school, and I am able to do before and after school care, drop offs and collections.

Sarah is an amazing mother and so great with children of all ages. She is responsible, trustworthy and commited to supporting children in their development. Sarah's home nursery is set up for so much fun and entertainment to keep the kids engaged. I would recommend Sarah to anyone with young ones needing child care!

I had been looking for a childminder for this school term and future and had seen Sarah's advert so I contacted her. She arranged a visit for me and my daughter and was so friendly and I instantly felt comfortable with her. She gave us a full tour of her home and run through some information with me as I had never had a childminder before. My daughter started two days a week for school drop off and pick ups and I then added every morning. My daughter has loved going to Sarah's and has had so much fun there, she will always come home with something she's drawn or made and usually doesn't want to leave! I get regular updates on what my daughter has been doing each day via the app and know when she has been picked up and dropped off which is really reassuring. Due to a job change I no longer require childcare, which my daughter is sad about! I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a childminder we were both really happy with her.

We have been with Sarah since September, when our baby turned just 6 months and I had to return to work 5 days a week, which is a stressful and emotional task for any mum, but Sarah has made this so easy. Sarah has gone above and beyond helping us through developmental transitions for naps, and weaning and even walking, working together as a team to give our baby consistency both in her setting and at home. I always worried that having a baby at a childminder would mean it sitting in a bouncer in the corner of a room while the needs of the older are met. I couldn't have been more wrong. Sarah has fun and creative activities each day that she adapts to mean they are all involved, including our baby in her own way. Finally, being my third child I was really worried that being back at work she was going to miss out on a lot of the preschool life my older two got, however Sarah takes them to play groups, library visits, park trips and play dates, building their own little network of baby friends which makes me absoloutly delighted. There is a smile on our babies face every single day when we arrive and I could not ask for more than that
