Cosy Toes Childminding / Mrs Sara A'Barrow

My name is Sara and I am a registered childminder with a wealth of experience as a mum to 4 children of my own and also having spent 8 years locally as a Teaching Assistant. I have a degree and diploma, and relevant childcare qualifications to Level 3 NVQ Teaching & Learning Support.

My own children are a son of 20, a daughter of 19, and a daughter of 17 each with a current DBS, and one other daughter aged 14. I also have a step-daughter aged 10. My husband Paul lives with us and we have a black Labrador, hamster and keep tropical fish, which complete our family.

I have worked as a childminder for over 5 years and have a number of registered assistants who help me. My husband Paul is my full time assistant. 

My house has a dedicated childcare room with a reading corner, ride-on toys, craft zone,and child friendly tables and chairs to accomodate all ages. I have two outdoor patio areas, one primarily for children and one for family seating. The outdoor area is still evolving.

I plan activities at home including messy play, paint, cooking and craft. We occasionally go on excursions to Penrose Walks, the beach or National Trust places. We also go to the local library once a week. I pick up and drop off at St Michaels School.  

I have a 7 seater vehicle at my disposal for outings.

My most recent OFSTED inspection of February 2017 awarded me as an Outstanding Provider.
