Service summary

Sarah Barber

My name is Sarah Barber and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder on Fens. Why choose us? I say 'us' as when your children come into my home they are welcomed into our family not just into my care. My own (5!) children very much will also become a big part of their lives and have always been brilliant with all the children I have cared for sharing their home, their toys and their mum with them! This is our family home and the day to day routines and environment will reflect such. As well as providing care for their needs, a rich learning environment will be found through planned and unplanned activities and through everyday life learning opportunities. We have a love of outdoors and nature; being in the garden playing in the mud kitchen, finding worms, growing vegetables and flowers, watching the birds, or going out on nature walks. We love to bake and cook; learning maths, sharing and learning how to care for ourselves by preparing healthy meals. We love to read, colour, craft, paint, play games, sing songs and whatever we feel like doing following the themes and seasons of the year. Activities are planned and focussed around the children in my care; their interests and abilities. We like to go on outings to playgroups, parks and further afield as we are able. • Graded ‘GOOD’ by Ofsted • Flexible Care: Contracts tailored to parents requirements.
