Sarah Smith (Fox Valley Childcare)

After 10 years of teaching, I came to a point at which I realised it was time for a change. I was extremely excited to start my own business as a childminder, allowing me to continue to develop young minds by delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to children in my own home, supported by my husband and our three children aged 3, 6 and 8 years.

I am lucky to have a fantastic assistant, Hannah, who works as part of Fox Valley Childcare alongside me, bringing even more experience from her years spent in a range of early years settings. We provide care for children aged 6 weeks to 11 years.

At Fox Valley Childcare we aim to create a nurturing atmosphere in which children feel confident to explore and learn through play. We plan fun, age appropriate activities to encourage children to be curious, creative and resilient. Individual learning journey's are recorded using Baby's Day's software, allowing parents to remotely view all observations and photographs of their child's progress within the EYFS.
