About Me

My name is Julie Coyle and I live in the Coltness area of Wishaw.
I live with my partner and 2 daughters aged 18 and 20. I love my job very much and watch the children develop into perfect little people . I also love how they feel so proud of themselves and love talking about there day. I have been childminding for 9 years and cant wait for the next 9 years as its the best rewarding job .

I believe my service offers the very best of both worlds providing the expertise you would expect from a quality nursery but in a comfortable home from home environment, with low adult:child ratios. "A professional service with a very personal touch

I have been a registered childminder for 9 years and I love the children, the challenges and rewarding experiences the job brings.
There is nothing more rewarding doing this job than the smiles on the childrens faces and the knowledge knowing that they are happy and safe while in my care.

I offer a warm, welcoming home environment which provides you with the confidence to leave your child and go to work with peace of mind.
I am registered through the Care Inspectorate and also a memeber of the scma association.

My household is non-smoking and I do not have any pets.

I am a fun,loving, caring, person who adores caring for children and helping them develop to their full potential.

I have worked with children from babies to teens and which I have found very valuable and interesting. It would be a privilage and pleasure to care for your little one.
I offer a range of regular outings such as soft play, parks, library, swimming, toddler groups and drop ins

I have a large selection of toys -indoor and outdoors available to help your child's individual development, learning and understanding of the world.

I recognise the parent as the childs prime carer and provide an individual planned curriculum which will enable your child to develop emotionally, physically, intellectually and socially.

I provide parents with a written diary daily and daily sheets which gives highlights on their child's day and can be a tool for parents to communicate any needs back to me

I am currently graded at a 5

My Experience

The experience i have is from caring for my own 2 children and family members .
I looked after my neice and nephew as they were growing up and watching them grow and help them fill there full potential in life gave me so much satisfaction.

I still watch my neice and nephew from time to time and they love coming as i also have a fun day arranged for them

I also have 20 years of experience being a full time mum to my own to girls

I have been lucky to work with children from weeks old to 16 years and have learnt that the importance of planning activities is to suite each childs stage of development and to make the activities fun.

Whilst your child is in my care we do so many fun things:
We play with Playdough,Duplo,Kitchen,Puppets and with sand and water. We get messy with cornflour and water, Gloop and shaving foam.

We learn about different people and cultures. We learn to recognise letters, numbers, words,colours and shapes. We love all cozy on the couch reading a book

We paint, draw, write, cut out and glue. We make collages,sticker pictures and junk models. We learn to use scissors and to be creative in all that we do.

We sing songs,dance which is my favourite ,learn new songs,we love getting the instruments out and make music to the songs. We listen to music from different countries.

We learn about sharing, taking turns and respecting people, we learn to mix with children who may be older or younger than us.
We learn about the House rules and manners how to say "Thank you" and say "Sorry" if we upset someone.

We visit different Parks, Soft Plays,Libaries,, Toddler Groups and Childminding groups..We go on Nature Walks to see what things we can and go on extra special trips to the beach zoo etc
We find out about our community and keeping safe.

I love encouraging the children to help me pick the fruit and vegetables . but we do buy and make yummy things and maybe a little treat.
We sit together at meals and learn our Social Skills

We celebrate Birthdays and Festivals from around the world. We learn about eating healthy food, keeping our bodies healthy,our personal hygiene and learn how to keep safe.

I also have a very good childminding friend has an Allotment and we go there and learn how to grow fruit and vegatables flowers plants and how to take care for them and especially we get to taste how good they are.

We play outside in the garden. We run, jump,climb,ride and explore.We play with all the outdoor toys

We express ourselves within our garden, we dig and find all kinds of animals and insects in the garden.
We use our imaginations and make pretend food with our Mud Kitchen.

I plan activities weekly for the children to promote their well being and development whilst ensuring their safety at all times.

I am flexible with parents and love the fact that the children in my care always give me great feed back on the care,outings and activities i provide for them. and become great friends and part of an extended family and look forward to the next time and have lots more fun and loving memories and experiences

julie has been looking after my 3 year old 5 mornings for 6 months now. He totally loves her. I was really nervous about sending Christopher to a childminder as he's is terribly clingy and gets upset when separated from me. julie put my mind at ease right from the start by texting to let me know how he was through the day. He loves going with her and has come on leaps and bounds the past few months. julie is really friendly and open. never late and totally reliable. never let me dwn once. her rates are more than reasonable. All in fabulous childminder. highly recommend her :)

Julie is a great childminder. Both my girls went to Julies full time. My daughters loved spending time at Julies always wanting to go to Julies. Lily my daughter loved spending time with Julies girls. Julie's girls are a credit to her. Julie goes out her her way to help. I always felt comfortable to leave my girls with Julie and always know they were well taken care off.

I loved that Julie plans a wide range of activities to keep the kids amused. And loads of outings to playgroups and soft play. Would not trust anyone else.

I already have a childminder for my 8yr old, however Julie has also taken care of him when his childminder can't do so. My son has a fabulous time at Julies house. Julie is kind, caring and according to my son lots of fun. Julies daughters are a credit to her, they are both kind, caring and lots of fun. They make my son feel very welcome in their home and interact well with him, the girls seem to genuinely love having the children in their home. I would recommend Julie to anyone looking for childcare, when I collect my son he looks very happy and comfortable with Julie and her family, he has enjoyed a range of activities with her, and they are always geared towards his interests. Llast summer she took him out on a bug hunt, this was fabulous as he loves insects and despite not knowing him that well at the time she had had noticed his interest and helped him to develop it. You can't get more dedicated than that! In the words of my son "I love going to Julies house!".

Hi Alison
Thank you so much for you and your sons kind words.Its a pleasure to watch him while his childminder is unavailable.He is a credit to you.
My girls love having him about, when we pass your house they always look to see if your son is out so they can stop and speak to him and cant wait until his childminder is unavailable so he can come to our home and play.
Hope to see him over the holidays or in passing.
