Sara's Shining Stars

Hi, I'm Sara, welcome to Sara's Shining Stars; I have been an Ofsted registered Childminder for 21 years, and I love my job. I have 2 grown up daughters and an 18 month old grandson, I also have a cat called Bailey who lives with me as well.

I have a lovely, big closed off back garden full of different toys for stars of all ages, from swings, to cars, a mud kitchen, the sandpits and everything in between. There is also an under cover/ sheltered area outside so your stars can play in fresh air all year round. Inside we have a large dedicated playroom, with pretty much any toy your star would want to play with, we do also have a few games consoles for the older or tech wizard stars too.

Throughout the week we run a variety of activities in house to encourage development, learning and creativity, (crafts, guided activities, free play, colour games etc) but we also venture outside to local parks for fun adventurous play or an insect scavenger hunt on the nicer days. On certain days we also visit local indoor play centres or other local groups too.
