Hi my name is Sara Virgo and I am an Ofsted registered, NNEB qualified childminder.
I have a large detached house with a well equipped dedicated playroom and a safe enclosed garden.
I like to feel that the babies and children in my care get the best of both worlds - a fun and caring home and family atmosphere which caters to each child's individual needs and routine as well as the focus on development and learning you would receive in a nursery setting.
Most of all though I believe that children learn best when provided with fun play experiences and resources in a safe, secure environment.
My service offers care for up to six children at a time with an assistant working with me so the children have the benefit of other children to play with whilst learning important skills such as sharing and taking turns.
Babies and children I care for benefit from developing a close relationship with me and the other children I look after. I can offer more child focused care for each child and so cater for their own specific needs and personalities.
The more individual care I offer enables me to be flexible with the service I can offer for parents.
The benefit of being a childminder means I can take the children on trips out to parks, nature reserves, beach etc regularly. We also go to several group play sessions with other childminders where the children can socialise with other children and take part in various activities, such as arts and crafts, singing, music and story times.
I pick up / drop off at Birchwood Grove School, Dicker House Preschool and Nursery 51.
