From Parents

‘The planning of Ted’s ‘Peter Pan Party’ was meticulous. Sara asked all the right questions in advance and came prepared to take control of some very active six-year-old boys from the word go. Sara’s mix of keeping the boys in order whilst providing massive amounts of fun all round was better than I could have ever conceived.’

‘Sara, you have been such an inspiration for Orion. She has enjoyed working in your class so much. Thank you for bringing out the best in her’

‘Sara is a fantastic entertainer and engaged with the children really well. Her ideas were fun and original and she made my daughter’s birthday party perfectly tailor-made for her, including her favourite characters and songs and taking the children on a fun-filled adventure! Thanks again for such a great party’

‘Dear Sara, Thank you for my amazing birthday party. All my friends and their mummies say that you are incredible! What a lot of energy and imagination you have too! Thank you from all of us and we hope to work with you again.
Christopher and family

‘Sara,thank you for everything you did that brought together the most spectacular party. Emmanuella and all her friends had a fabulous time and so did the parents. Some of them have said “it was the best Party ever!”’ Sandra

‘Sara had really thought through her target audience in advance – not easy when it’s a mix of mainstream school girls and boys. And the birthday boy, with his special needs, acts circa two years behind his friends! She’d thought up a story in advance with a wet weather and a dry weather version – and told it, complete with songs, dances, actions, fun and treats along the way for all. Sara’s work is exhilarating, her workrate exceptional and her empathy outstanding.’

‘My daughter goes to early stages here and LOVES it, it has been so good for her and the teacher, Sara, is fantastic. worth every penny.’

From Teachers

‘I have had the pleasure of observing Sara Williams in her capacity as a teacher on several occasions and her enthusiasm and rapport with the children has always been extremely impressive. She connects with children at their level, whilst still encouraging them to challenge themselves.

Sara is innovative and a natural leader whilst remaining both accessible and professional on every level. Her boundless energy is infectious which is evident from the children’s reactions to her workshop and I would have no hesitation in recommending Sara to any parent or teacher.’

‘An exciting and innovative drama teacher.’

Jill Schaverein, principal, Stagecoach Theatre School, Beckenham

‘I consider Sara to be an exceptional teacher. She is consistently organised and prepares all her classes diligently each week, taking care to ensure that her students are progressing well in their disciplines. She is also a great team player and popular with both students and their parents.

My greatest admiration, though, is for Sara’s energy, creativity and initiative in the classroom. I have known many teachers in my capacity as principal of a theatre school and Sara’s skills are a rarity.

Parents who observe her classes often comment on her infectious sense of fun in the classroom and on how their children are consistently engaged in and enjoying their learning. Sara is also able to combine this energetic approach with a sense of discipline and she deals with student issues promptly and fairly. Sara is able to work with students of all ages and has dealt very successfully with the challenges of including special needs children within her classroom.

In summary I would unhesitatingly recommend Sara to any potential employer in the field of education. She is one of the best teachers I’ve encountered.’

Stuart Burrows, Principal, Stagecoach Shirley and Sydenham

‘Sara has been invited to support particular curriculum projects at Robert Owen Early Years Centre on a regular basis. Sara has planned her activities carefully and relevant to the themes suggested. She offers songs, rhymes, movement and musical instruments.

She has a very engaging and enthusiastic nature which children are naturally drawn to. She is highly creative in her planning and offers a good pace of activity. Sara has shown herself to be flexible in her approach and able to adapt her programme to meet the needs of different ages and needs. She has worked successfully with children aged 1-4 and feedback from the staff teams have been very positive.’
