Sarah Oxley

I am a newly qualified childminder with spaces for both Early Years and wrap-around care for children attending Alfred Sutton Primary School. I also offer holiday cover but numbers will be limited, this is to ensure we are able to go on trips and outings which will make their time with me fun (as school holidays should be).

My hours of Business are 7.30 am to 6.30 pm weekdays and school holidays. I offer competitive rates as well as accepting the 30 hours funded hours and working parents Tax Free Childcare schemes.

I have numerous qualifications relating to childcare which include:

Cache Level 3 in Homebased Childcare

Managing and Expectations of behaviour

Delivering the EYFS

Planning in the moment

Supporting Emotional Development

I have experience working with children including those with Special Educational Needs as well as being a mother to a bright and well-behaved four year old.

I will be providing nutrition and home cooked food to all the children in my care and am passionate about promoting healthy eating. I educate children to understand the importance of a healthy diet and active lifestyle and am happy to support parents with fussy eaters. Cooking lessons and opportunities to grow food are given to encourage this.

I am a creative person and love to share this with children, therefore they will have plenty of opportunities to explore their creative side using numerous mediums. I also know the importance of children going out on trips to museums, zoos and activities not only to broaden their horizons but also to support their literacy.

Please call me to visit and meet myself and my son, and to see how my house and garden has been adapted to provide a fun and enriched learning environment. 

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.

Notes

The downstairs of my house and garden are a safe and welcoming environment where I aim to make children feel a sense of belonging. They will have their own coat hook with a photo and frame they have decorated to promote this. 

My house is located between two parks, a lake and some woods where we will explore and enjoy.

Their are also local children's groups which we can visit to help your child gain social skills which are crucial for their development.
