My name is Julie and I have been an OFSTED registered childminder for the past 17 years. During this time I have cared for numerous children ranging from birth to 12 years as I also operate a before and after school service for st Thomas catholic school..
I have a dedicated playroom with an extensive array of equipment and a large, child friendly, safe, secure garden. I frequently take the children out on a wide variety of educational and fun trips as I believe that variety prevents boredom and improves behaviour.
There is a quiet room where children can either nap or take quiet time out, TV, Video, IT equipment. I am a firm believer in equal opportunities and offer age appropriate teaching with a wide range of indoor and outdoor play equipment to promote both fine and gross motor skills.
I am conveniently situated close to the local hospital with good transport links to surrounding areas.
Funded places for 3and4year olds.
I decided to take a change in career to childminding following the birth of my daughter who is now 19 years old and during that time I have encountered and dealt efectively with the numerous problems that children can throw at you.
I believe in maintaining a frank and open relationship with parents and manage to foster a trusting relationship with the children in my care.

what a wonderful childminder, can’t do enough for you, is always helpful and amazing! we just love her
I cannot praise and thank Julie enough for the care and love that she gives to my daughter on a daily basis. My daughter has been looked after by Julie since she was 14 weeks old (3 yrs now), in a loving, home from home environment. She has a lovely nursery room layout that is practical and stimulating, lots of outings, great toys and teachings aids, and a wealth of experience with children that is second to none. I have watched my daughter flourish under her care, I have never had a tear when I leave for work and she is far advanced in her communication and social skills for her age group. I have complete confidence that my daughter is safe and happy once I leave her. I cannot recommend Julie highly enough.
Julie started looking after our first child Abbie (now 6yrs) when she was just under 6 months old and we've never ever regretted the decision. The level of childcare offered by Julie is fantastic. The children have a range of toys to play with, they have a dedicated playroom, they are taken out on trips virtually every day and they eat home cooked food.
Abbie instantly settled at Julie's and they've almost become a second family to her. She now loves going back during the school holidays.
When I became pregnant with our second child Cara (now 17mths) I instantly reserved a place at Julie's and she loves it every bit as much as Abbie did.
I know that when I drop my kids off with Julie in the morning I don't have to worry about them again during the day because they are so well cared for.
