My daughter started with Julie over 12 months ago. I could not be happier with my daughters progress, Julie provides an educational loving and caring environment. My daughter loves going to Julie's and enjoys her time with the other children. Julie is very accommodating to change and has helped me a lot with showing get flexibility at all times. It's so nice to be able to go to work knowing your child is still thriving. I have no concerns on my daughters welfare whilst I'm at work as I know she is with the best childminder I could possibly ask for.

Previous today last review, our little boy stayed with Julie for 7 months before our circumstances changed and he had to move on.

Julie is a FANTASTIC childminder. Our son would wriggle with excitement even in the car pulling up to her house.

He learnt to walk during his time at Julie's which was wonderful and it was clear Julie's support he really flourished in all areas of development. Even though our boy was under 18 months Julie involved him in all activities, painting, crafts, song time etc, so lovely to receive little homemade gifts and have a happy child to pick up having had such fun!!!

Julie's professionalism and communication were second to none. We have a wonderful diary full of what our baby was up to every day. It was a great way to know what he had eaten, been up to etc. Julie would sometimes put photos of our baby in there too. A real treat to see him having such a nice time. Julie is organised and methodical, so reassuring and kind.

Julie is naturally considerate and it was very clear to my husband and I that our son was very well cared for and loved when with Julie.

We can't thank her enough for her care, we miss her hugely! I would recommend her to anyone with great confidence.

Our daughter has been with Julie since November 2013 and absolutely loves her time there. She runs to greet Julie when we drop her off and gives her a hug when we come to pick her up. It's such a great feeling to know that we are leaving our daughter somewhere that she feels so comfortable and is treated like part of the family.
Julie's dedicated playroom is fantastic, there is so much for the children to do from dressing up/roll play to crafts and educational activities. Julie has definitely helped with our daughter's development and continues to guide her through key stages.
We would highly recommend Julie's childminding services and thank her for all that she does for us and our daughter.

Our 9 month old son has been with Julie for a few weeks now and is having a lovely time. Julie has a lovely room dedicated to her childminding full of toys and lots of wonderful things to play with. He has developed since being there and smile when he sees Julie. I've struggled with going back to work but with Julie's help and reassurance its been that bit easier knowing our baby is being so well looked after. It's so great to get updates in the day and a journal entry each day.

Julie is very efficient and organised in terms of having all the right documentation and qualifications. She is a truly lovely person and it's such a relief to know our precious boy is with someone who cares for him so well.

I can highly recommend Julie for her caring and kind nature, professionalism and facilities.

Thank you Julie!

I required childcare for my daughter when she changed schools, after joining Childcare.Uk we discovered Julie's profile and decided to contact her regarding a visit.

On visiting we were welcomed by Julie, who took the time to discuss my childcare requirements and relevant information about my daughter. Julie discussed all the policies and procedures and was ready and willing to answer any query I threw at her.

My daughter has quickly settled into Julie's home and also I feel this in turn as assisted her in settling into a new school. My daughter looks forward to spending time with Julie and the other children and enjoys the activities that are offered.

The environment is welcoming, with lots of toys and activities. Meals provided are well received and an enjoyed by my daughter who can be fussy at the best of times.

Our 15 month old daughter has been going to Julie for just over a month now after a long hard search for a good childminder and I can honestly say Julie is amazing with the children.
Our daughter cant wait to get out of the car when we get there and is learning new things daily.
VERY HAPPY :)

We truly struck gold when we found Julie. She is not only incredibly kind and caring but extremely flexible as well. As my wife and I both work shifts, Julie accommodated us perfectly.
Our daughter absolutely loves going to spend the day with Julie. She ensures that the children are entertained, stimulated and well looked after. They do lots of activities, such as drawing, painting, sticking, going for walks and above all, playing! (Which is what children should do!) We particularly like the “home” environment she has created. The playroom is very well stocked with lots of toys, activities, the children's artwork and wall displays. Julie provides lovely home cooked meals for the children and has a wide and varied selection.
We know what its like when trying to find the right childminder. We were very nervous and apprehensive about leaving our precious one with someone we didn't know, but we can honestly say that Julie is one in a million and we fully recommend her as an exceptional childminder.

My daughter has been with Julie for over a month now. Since she has started she has become more confident in her language, her social skills have improved and she is a more outgoing child. She previously attended a nursery however never was completely settled. It took her days to settle in at Julie's, she loves going and enjoys every minute of being there. The environment if friendly and educational. There are a wide range of toys and activities, she comes home with craft that she has made most days. Julie always has time to discuss the kind of day that my daughter has had which I find extremely beneficial. I feel extremely confident leaving my daughter with Julie, I know she will be looked after and cared for.

My little girl has been going to Julie’s for nearly a month now and has loved every minute of it. She settled in straight away and can’t wait to go every morning. Julie has a lovely playroom, filled with lots of toys and decorated in a fun, but also educational way. I like the fact that my daughter is being looked after in a homely environment, where she feels comfortable and happy, and it takes the stress out of worrying about her when I am at work. Julie also provides meals & snacks, so it’s one less meal for me to cook when I get home! All in all I am pleased that I found Julie and would highly recommend her.
