Julie was a childminder for my children for 5 years. The care that she provided to my children was comprehensive. I never had to worry about my children because I knew they had the best care possible. I am Julie extremely grateful for how she raised my children while I was working. Always open to suggestions, comments or insights. Julie offers a warm, friendly and open home to every child who is treated individually. I owe Julie a lot and recommend to every parent who is looking for professional care

Wioletta..
thank you for your review..
what can I say .
I’ve a very soft spot for Max a moo moo I always will have .. we have a special love for one another .. Tobi well he’s just lush .. I’m super proud of how well he’s doing with his sports .. he taught me a lot about bilingual children.. I’m so glad I still see them at school other wise I’d be heartbroken..
I will also hold dear the special friendship
Jacob and Tobi have .. which I’m convinced will be life long and I feel privileged to be part of that x.. you were amazing parents to work for .. always open minded and so supportive.. especially through Phills illness and death ..
so thank you BOTH.
Very much
Love as always

My little boy charlie who's nearly 4 has been going to Julie's part time since he was 8 months (2/3) days a week. He absolutely loves it , he wakes up every morning asking if he is going to Julie's and as soon as I say "yes" he is over the moon that he is spending the day with her! Julie has been fantastic in giving him confidence and encouragement in all aspects over the last 4 years. She is kind and caring and is always there for a cuddle when he wants one. It is like home from home at Julie's house and she will always go the extra mile to help and be flexible.
Julie is also a great teacher, Charlie loves learning his numbers, letters & shapes ect and he makes great progress with julie. Her partner and her son are also both lovely and the kids think they are all great 😊 I would be lost with out her and will be using her for many more years to come!

Thank you for your review..
Charlie Farlie has grown in confidence a huge amount over the summer , with a great sense of humour 😊
Even if he won’t discuss it further 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
You like all my parents must take credit in what fine young little people you all have ..
I’ve always a cuddle or snuggle free when needed ..Alex and Barry both enjoy the winkles they all get on really well together and have a great bond .

We’ve been using Julie for breakfast/after school care and school holidays. Our daughter loves going there “Julies Shepard’s pie is the best as she has beans in it!” Plus she super organised and plans any leave a year in advance so you can plan ahead.
Highly recommend 🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰

Ps thanks for the crafts the other day
I’m very grateful 💋

Julie is an absolutely fantastic childminder, words cannot begin to express my gratitude for all of her help with my two over the past 4 years. When you hand over your children to someone you want to know that they will be safe, happy and nurtured...I can safely say that both of my two feel that way when they are with Julie. She treats each of her children as individuals and I know that she loves each and every one of them. She offers a great range of enrichment activities for them all and operates in a firm but very fair way. She takes a keen interest in all of their achievements at home and at school and will always make an effort to celebrate these with them. Julie goes above and beyond for all of her families whenever she can. Over the years she has offered both practical and emotional support to us all which is very much appreciated and, I believe, beyond her remit as a childminder.
For as long as I need a childminder I will use Julie and would have no hesitation in recommending her to other parents.

Thank you both , Ezra isn’t quite so little now..
He’s on the verge of being a very entertaining toddler ..
I’m glad I’ve been able to support you while you work hard with your studies.
It’s always a honour to be part of your child’s life .
