A 'second home' for our son.

I found it extremely hard looking for a childminder and coping with going back to work after my maternity leave. This was our first child, and not only that, he was an extreme premature baby, born nearly 16 weeks early – so he really is precious in every way! My husband and I visited several childminders but we both agreed unanimously on Julie. She didn’t seem at all phased by the difficult start that our son had; when we visited her he was still on home oxygen (although was off by the time he started) and Julie just treated him like the normal baby that he was.

When our son first started with Julie he was still on medication which wasn’t a problem, he is also asthmatic . He is seen by many external parties such as a physiotherapist, speech and language etc, all of which Julie supports and likes to be involved with so we are all working together. Julie runs a professional childminding service, where the children are well cared for as well as educated and taken out for visits to the park, farms and children centres. We feel reassured that our son is well looked after, that Julie’s house is like a second home (and Julie like a second mum!), but that this is done in a professional manor. We have no hesitations in recommending Julie, she fantastic with our son (who is now 3).
