About Me

I have been a registered childminder for ten years now and have enjoyed every minute of it, at first it was a very hard decision to leave my full time job working as the SENCO for Plymouth YMCA but in 2010 I took the plunge and havent looked back. I live in the Woolwell area of Plymouth. I do pick up's and drop off's all over the North of the city and offer hours to suit your needs.

My Experience

I have worked in childcare for over twenty years in various nurseries and pre schools and in more recent years was designated SENDCO and Child protection appointed person. I have a vast experience of knowledge and understanding of all seven areas of learning, the EYFS and Every child matters. I have two children of my own and have first hand experience of juggling a full time job in childcare, being a wife and a mum!! It's a hard job but someone has to do it!!

My daughter has been with Bumpsy Daisy since she was a baby, she is now three and absolutely loves going to her childminder! She's is always happy at the end of the day when she arrives home, most of the time she doesn't want to leave Bumpsy daisy! She's always proud to show me all the exciting things she's made throughout the day! Her development and speech has come on really well. I can't thank Julie Ann enough for being such a great minder for my daughter! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic childminder!

I have used this child minder for about 18 months since she left the nursery my children went to and they missed her. She is always up beat and has an amazing way with the children, calm, exciting, nurturing and caring. We have never had any problems with arranging childcare and have always found her very accommodating and flexible.

It was a very hard decision when I went back to work who to trust caring for our 5 month old baby. After weighing up our options we decided on a childminder rather than a nursery. We visited bumpsy daisy and our mind was made up.

Bumpsy daisy is so friendly and flexible, both my husband and I work shifts so it was one of our big concerns when it came to returning to work after my maternity leave.

18 months on and I can safely say we made the right decision. My daughter loves going to Bumpsy daisy, when I drop her off she stands at the door waving and saying bye. During the past 18 months my daughter has had a medical condition resulting in an operation, my daughter was still able to go there and carry on as normal, which we were so grateful for as it also meant I could continue working.

Bumpsy daisy is just like our extended family and I can't thank them enough for all their hard work, time and support.
