About Me

Thank you for viewing my profile, my name's Julie, and I'm an Ofsted Registered Childminder.

My family... We have a very happy and welcoming home. I have been married to my husband for 23 years and have two sons, aged 21 and 12. I hold a DBS certificate along with my husband and eldest son and a valid Paediatric first aid certificate.

My role... As a childminder I provide a caring home from home environment for children to feel welcome and safe. I support the children, allowing them to learn and develop through fun and play and fulfil my role of delivering the EYFS and work closely with parents/carers.

Your child... To track children's development, I use an online system called Baby Days. It is an interactive, two-way system with enables me to record information and allows parents to log onto their account and have full access to all their child's records. This includes daily diaries, photos, observations, next steps for learning, to ensure all the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage are met. Parents are also able to add photos, information and comments, which is encouraged, so we can work in partnership.

At home... I have a spacious home and dedicated playroom for children to enjoy, with a range of activities: play kitchen, arts and crafts, baking, construction, soft toys, vtech toys, baby toys, books, jigsaws, dance and music, a separate quiet room for resting or sleeping, and an outdoor area with playhouse, ride-ons, water play and sandpit.

Out and about... I'm close to 3 local large parks and make visits to local playgroups, library, farm and day trips during the school holidays.

If you would like to get in touch, please do not hesitate to message, text or phone, I am happy to chat, answer any questions or arrange a visit.

Location... Between Halesowen and Blackheath town centre, I am situated on the A4099 (Gorsty Hill Road), there is a large drive for parents to drop off and collect.

Blake started with Julie before he was 1, we were new to the area originally being from London so picking someone was so important! From the moment we met Julie we were at ease Blake is so happy with Julie and her family. Julie has such a calming way with all the children.
She has helped blakes learning and development so well, it amazes me how far he's come. She's always helping them learn through doing fun things, like going to the park, farms and playing in her garden! The environment and setting is lovely.
I can recommend Julie very highly

Our son started with Julie at the age of 1 and he is 3 now. He is so happy with Julie and it feels like he is with extended family when he is there. Julie has adapted her care to his age and developments and supported our wishes as parents as well as guidance if we need it.
Julie has a lovely gentle and kind way with the children where she explains things to them and encourages them to develop good behaviours.
She has helped his learning and development through doing fun things, like going to the park and learning about nature.
The environment and setting is lovely.
I can't rate Julie highly enough and would recommend her to anyone.

Julie was our Nanny for 12 months before becoming our childminder in July 2013. She looks after our two boys, now aged 7 and 2.
Julie is extremely reliable, honest and trustworthy. She provides the perfect environment in which our children feel safe and happy. Her own chidren are just lovely, and her youngest child and our eldest are the best of friends.
Julie has the warmest heart;- she always goes that extra mile to ensure our children are safe and happy, they absolutely love going to Julie's house,and as working parents, we never worry about our children when we leave them each morning. Julie has an excellent manner with the children in her care, and she is bringing up our youngest amazingly!
Our youngest son spends four days every week, during term time, with Julie, they have a really lovely bond, Lucas adores Julie, and he has the greatest time with her. They go to playgroups, to the park, to the shops, as well as play time at Julies home, both indoors and out! Julie works with our son, developing his language and range of vocabulary. She follows EYFS curriculum, and shares witn us, every stage of Lucas's development. Lucas really enjoys the variety of activities Julie provides, and never wants to come home! That speaks volumes to us:) Would not hesitate to recommend. Thank you. so much.... :)
