About Me

My name is Julia I live in a large detached house in Loughton Essex which is a 7 minute walk from Loughton station. I work alongside my daughter Emma. We provide a safe and homely environment. We were graded 'Outstanding' from our last Ofsted inspection.
We are offering a happy, safe, secure and stimulating environment with emphasis on learning through play. I find caring for children very rewarding and offer all children in my care encouragement, love and kindness, I find this helps children to be happy and confident in my setting. Our aim is to settle your child/baby in as quickly as possible and as we are a family run setting we hope to make your child feel this is like home from home. We always get as much information from you about your child so we can keep to the same routine they are used to at home.We appreciate sleeping times are very important to you and your child so we aim to work exactly to your usual routine , as we have lots of rooms each child can sleep when they want and are never made to all nap together.
Each child has their own private room too sleep in with a luxury travel cot, fresh bedding and baby monitor. We check the children every twenty minutes or more often if you wish us to do so.
I live with my husband Tony and our 28 year old daughter, my other daughter lives nearby with her husband and little boy, I also have two grown up sons who also live nearby with their families, one has a son and daughter, the other has a two daughter's and two son's. I work alongside my daughter Emma who is also a registered Childminder, she is mummy to a little boy and has many years experience working with children.
We have a huge variety of toys and activities for different ages for inside and outside the house. In the garden we have many little Tikes toys including a slide, seesaw and cars, we also have a wooden playhouse with two floors for the children to play in, and recieved an 'Outstanding' grade on our Ofsted inspection.
Our aim is to settle your child in as quickly as possible so we offer a settling in period before starting.
Each child is given a Daily Diary which your child will bring home every day, we fill this out during the day so you know exactly what your child has eaten, nappy changes, sleep and play.
We also give each child a book which is called 'All About Me' so we know as much about your child as possible.
We now accept all Childcare vouchers.
Although play is an essential part to our day, we work to ensure that the children are learning something new every day.We have a learning objective every day , and help children discover their potential through exploitative play. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, and help your child enjoy and thrive throughout each stage of their learning journey.
Outdoor play is also an important part of our day. The children are encouraged to play outside daily, we have many outdoor activities. We also take the children for walk's visiting the local library, park and shop's. In the summer month's we have a huge gazebo in the garden and spend most of our days outside.

My Experience

As well as bringing up my own 4 children, I was a registered Childminder for four years when my son's were young, I looked after three children during that time, two of them were only 8 weeks old when I first cared for them. Tony and I have also been Foster Carer's with children ranging from 5 months to 16 years old for seventeen years. Emma and I have completed an NVQ level 3 in 'Children and Young People' I also have the CWDC qualification. We are all trained in peadiatric first aid and we refresh this training every 3 years.
