Children, in my care, have a safe fun filled day with lots of activities including toddler groups, lots of singing with instruments and puppets, crafting and cookery, story telling, dress up and dancing etc, I run a music and puppet toddler group in Plas mawr community centre.
I have been studying welsh for 6 years.
I am completed the gold snack award.

I cook healthy meals daily and provide healthy snacks.
I have a large flat secure garden with many outdoor activities, such as swing set, play house, bikes, sand and water table, outdoor crafts, mini golf, football and sporting activities.
I have 5 very friendly guinea pigs that live in the garden too.
I live only a short walk from Cefn Fforest eco park and the local park. I am regisited with the cssiw and crb checked. I am listed as an advanced childminder and am required to do extra training and continued professional development.

Julie is a fantastic childminder.

Julie offers a well planned, structured day which encourages the children to learn and develop through play.

My daughter is always very happy upon arriving at Julies in the mornings.
My little girl comes home with a book that is filled in each day detailing the activities shes has undertaken. This book also includes food/fluids and any output!

I would recommend her as a childminder to anyone! I feel confident knowing that when I am in work my little one is in very safe hands.
