about us

Hello, my name is Sarah Taylor. I have over 15 years of experience working in a childcare background, and have worked as a Countryside Ranger taking school kids and volunteers, pond dipping, tree planting, dry stone walling etc. I have also worked as a Cub Scout Leader, Assistant Teacher, Nanny, Camp America Counsellor, Babysitter, and my most precious qualification is mother to three fabulous children - eldest son Joe, then Danny and Annabel. I have a Level 3 Childcare Diploma.

Jon-Paul Taylor is my husband, and has Level 2 and Level 3 Childcare Diploma, and together we constitute Taylor Made Childminders.

We are fully qualified OFSTED and NCMA registered Childminders, we have full Enhanced CRB checks, both hold full clean UK driving licences, Paediatric First Aid Certificates, Food Hygiene and Safeguarding Children Certificates.

Taylor Made Childminders offers full and part time child care between the hours of 7am and 6pm.

We are close to Castleton Railway Station, close to all bus routes and also the motorway (M62).

We take great pride in our childminding services and like to think that we offer our children a ‘home from home’ whilst their parents are at work.

We are firm believers in the idea that children learn best when happy, so we strive to ensure that the children we look after are not only cared for physically and educationally, but also emotionally as well.

We will regularly attend training sessions and courses covering all aspects of childcare including child development, child protection, child welfare, first aid and healthy eating.

We are very passionate about healthy eating and home cooking, and like to use locally sourced, fresh ingredients in our home. We also like to involve the children in great fun making homemade cakes and biscuits. You might get to taste some if the children leave any!
