About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Julie and i have been a registered childminder for 29 years. I have 2 children, Kate is a childminder aged 31 and is based here with me so we can offer childcare for 6 children between us and Drew works as a chef in Portsmouth. My husband works locally. I have been married for 32 years. We have a cat. I run a toddler group on Thursdays and attend lots of other places for the rest of the week such as parks, farms (Farmer Palmers), soft play areas etc. We do arts and crafts regularly and support all children in their beliefs and individual needs. personal dietary requirements are adhered to and water and milk available all day. i work to the EYFS government scheme and will share details of your child's progress at my setting. I do not charge extra for outings or trips. I see a lot of other childminders so the children get to socially interact with their own age group but still have their own space back at my house. - we have a lot of fun and do a lot of things all year round. i am accredited to receive 2, 3 and 4 year funding. I do not charge for my holidays or bank holidays.

My Experience

29 years childcare - at home, taking to and from preschool and to and from state school. I have cared for very young babies up to 11 years, obviously after school and in the hols.

My Qualifications

Julie has cared for my son since he was just 8.5 months old, 4 days a week, and has a fantastic bond with her. My son hasn't always been the easiest to deal with, but the communication is fantastic and we always work out the issues together!
His most favourite days with Julie are when they head out for the day or doing arts and crafts and baking which hes always proud to show me when I collect him.
A home from home! :-)

Julie is really down to Earth but also very caring. Her years of experience shines through and it's lovely that she works with her daughter as the children get to interact in bigger groups and learn from each other. My little one is developing so well and learning so much. She loves going in and playing with her friends. I can tell they've been busy and active as my little one is always knackered by the time she gets home.

thank you so much. x

Julie looked after our son from 5 months old until he was 34 months at Christmas. We would use her forever if we could but we moved location. My son, 2 months on, asks for her and misses her a lot, as do we. She always had my sons care at the top priority and I cannot think of anyone that would have been better to have my son and who I would have been more comfortable to leave him with. Thank you, Julie.
