Sarah Hardwell

Childminder in York


I am an experienced childminder with a previous career in teaching and have recently gained a speech, language and communication qualification. In July 2017 I was rated as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted. I am also a mother of three children and am well versed in the joys of caring for young children, as well as an understanding of the specific needs that individual children have. I will provide your child with a wealth of carefully planned activities and experiences, both indoors and out, to allow them to develop emotionally, physically and educationally. Ofsted found that children learn "in a way that is best suited to each child's individual progress, personality and interests." All food is home cooked with fresh ingredients and dietary requirements can be accounted for. I follow the Early Years Code of Practice for Food and Drink.
I live in Dunnington and offer term time childcare for both the under fives and before and after school care for children attending Dunnington Primary School. I can also drop off or collect from Over the Rainbow Pre-School. £42 for a full day. Before school session £6, after school session £11.50, £5.00 per additional hour. All food included.
I currently have space on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays for under fives and also have spaces available for wrap around care for school age children. Please do contact me to discuss future availability.

Inclusion statement

All childcare and services should make reasonable adjustments to support disabled children and young people or those with additional needs. Below is a statement from this provider about their inclusive practice and levels of experience of supporting different needs

I have taught children with a wide range of needs so am confident in offering provision for them as a childminder.

As a teacher I provided effective learning experiences for many children with additional needs and I have transfered these skills to my career as a childminder where I continue to look after children with additional needs and keep up to date with training.

I have attended training on how to plan and implement the new EHC.
