About Me

Hello my name is Julie Coaster, I am an Ofsted Rated Good childminder. I have been married for twenty three years and have four children of my own, I have two boys, one who lives and works in Newcastle and one currently studying for his PHD. I also have two girls one studying at University and one aged fifteen still at home. I have been a successful childminder for sixteen years. I provide a safe nurturing environment for children of all ages. I have a purpose built micro nursery which includes a potty room, changing room, kitchen and large playroom which offers resources suitable for children between newborn and thirteen years old. I provide opportunities tailored to the early years foundation stage and I also use the Montessori approach. I provide pick ups, drop offs, nappies, wipes, meals and snacks as part of my childminding package for no extra charge. I currently hold a level 5 certificate which gives me early years professional status. I would like to assure parents that I take the Covid-19 Pandemic very seriously within my setting. I have a number of procedures in place both within the setting, on visits outdoors and childminder car use to keep us all as safe as possible. Please ask for a full copy of the my Covid-19 policy when you attend for your visit.

My Experience

I have also cared for children with medical needs including diabetes, Nefrotic syndrome, Asthma and allergies. I currently hold a number of certificates including holistic play, and working with challenging behaviour. The schools I work with are Crooksbarn Primary, St Johns, St Gregory's, Pentland Primary and Rosebrook Primary.
