Welcome to Auntie Sarah's Childminding website
I am experienced, local, Ofsted registered childminder based in Catford SE6, near Torridon Primary School, offering daycare and a wraparound service, including meals and snacks.
I am a married mum of 3, with a specific interest in child development and families. I have been registered in both Southwark and Lewisham since March 2010. On my last inspection I attained a ‘good’.
I provide a warm nurturing environment for the children that I care for as well as giving support and security to each individual family.
About Auntie Sarah's Childminding
All activities provide each individual child with social and emotional elements, within which the physical development enhances their fine and gross motor skills with hand – eye co-ordination in line with Early Years Foundation Stage..
As an Ofsted registered Childminder I am restricted to the number and ages of children that I can care for at any one time.

Auntie Sarah was my daughter’s childminder for over 2 years. She began looking after her when she started school (a very difficult time for her, she didn’t settle easily). Auntie Sarah was very helpful in supporting and reassuring her. Auntie Sarah is responsible, reliable, and flexible. Her manner is warm,but firm and my daughter really enjoyed the time they spent together- a home from home. I highly recommend her.
Auntie Sarah has our daughter after school and during some school holidays. We’ve found her to be an excellent childminder, who provides a safe and supportive environment.
Auntie Sarah has been our twins childminder since April 2016, and we are all delighted with her dedication to our needs. She has a lovely clean home and engages well with them both,they love going there. Auntie Sarah provides healthy and nutritious meals for them and caters for their dietary requirements. I would, and have recommended Auntie Sarah to other parents.
