About Me

I (Sarah, Owner of A Spoonfull of Sugar Childminders), as a parent, know that when it comes to childcare, choosing the provider is one of the most daunting and challenging tasks that you are likely to encounter.  As you are trusting the care of your little ones to another person which is scary. At A Spoonfull of Sugar Childminders we recruit by one simple rule "Would I entrust this person to look after my own children?". If there is the slightest hesitation, then I do not hire that person. 

We are always there for you; throughout the entire employment of your nanny, we don’t just disappear the minute we have placed someone with you.

 

Personally, I found as a parent that I was having a hard time finding quality care for my children outside of the typical daycare hours. I ended up missing events and started asked other parents what they did. I found that a lot of parents had little to no options either and decided that I would do something about it.

As an Early Childhood Educator, I have worked in numerous centers and homes as a nanny, I am now the proud owner of A Spoonfull of Sugar Childminders. We are a growing team of over 50 professional childcare providers and many happy customers.

What ever your requirements, we pride ourselves on our warm, caring and personalized service. We will always go that extra mile for you. 

I look forward to meeting you and your answering questions.

Thanks

Sarah

Our Philosophy

Children are unique, full of life, boundless in their energy, in their desire to learn and endearing in their innocence. They challenge us, they make us think, and most of all they make us laugh. This is why we enjoy our jobs so much.

 

Our goal, first and foremost, is to ensure that your children are safe in our care. We pride ourselves in working as part of a childcare team with parents. Therefore, it is important for all of us to be on the same page in terms of parental desires for their children and approved discipline  methods. We will never, ever use any type of corporal punishment on a child. We use positive reinforcement, redirection, logical consequences and timeouts as necessary and developmentally 

appropriate.

 

We are big believers in free play. Children learn best when they are able to freely explore their world and express their own interests. We assist children in their exploration and guide natural learning through everyday activities and play. Our goal during free play is to be a facilitator, 

while keeping the children safe, and helping as needed. 

 

We also love to facilitate guided play, whether that be reading books completing crafts, introducing science as we go on a walk, or teaching math through a baking activity. Teachable moments are always weaved into our activities and free play.
