Brown, Sarah Jean (Childminder)


Hello, my name is Sarah & I am a Childminder at Curiosity Corner Childcare. I am a Mum of 5 children, aged 23-15. I have over 30 years experience with children. My business hours are Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays, 8 am-6 pm. I am available for school pick-ups in the afternoon (and occasional am drop-offs depending on day of the week) at any schools in Cringleford, Bowthorpe, Bawburgh, and West Earlham areas. I offer before & after school sessions. My hourly rate is £5 an hour for 0-3 year olds, £4.50 for potty-trained 3-4 year olds and £4 an hour for 5-8 year olds with a 20% sibling discount if this applies. This cost includes any weekly playgroups attended & drinks throughout the day. I do not provide meals, but am happy to safely store any perishables for them and warm them up appropriately via the microwave if necessary.

SEND Local Offer details:
I am writing to tell you how my business, Curiosity Corner Childcare is available to meet the needs of children with disabilities & special needs. I assess children by following the developmental guidelines in the Development Matters in the EYFS. These guidelines help me to plan & implement age appropriate activities, so that if a child is falling behind in specific areas I can talk to the parents & seek confidential professional advice and/or training, in order to further help the children in my care. I have routine review and assessment measures in place, following the EYFS guidelines and get parental feedback often. I have personal experience with children with Down’s Syndrome, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome and emotional needs, such as bereavement of a parent and divorce, which required specific and special attention over the 30+ years of working with children. However, I have no formal training other than the necessary training to become a childminder. I intend to continue with my training and this includes taking specific courses on dealing with special needs children. My home has one level in which all the children may play together and has access to a downstairs toilet, sink and back garden, which can be accessed by a wheelchair. Through observations, planning and next steps for the individual children in my care, I will continue to help children reach their personal milestones. If a child has areas of learning that need attention or parents become aware of a physical condition that is affecting a child then I will work in partnership with any professional colleagues to help that child succeed and deal with any difficulties they may face.
