Julie Kelly

Hi, my name is Julie and I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Higher Green, Astley. I live with my husband Steve. I am a friendly, loving and kind person who can offer families and their children using all my experience as a mum and my 6 years as a childminder. 

I believe children learn better when at ease. I offer children a safe, fun, caring, stimulating and interactive place to learn whilst in a home from home environment. All children are treated as individuals. I encourage children to develop their own personalities and make their own decisions as well as providing planned activities focusing on the EYFS prime areas of learning and that are appropriate to ages and stages of development. I have a good range of resources including a child friendly outdoor area where the children can play. The children have access to large play areas on the ground floor of my house. I provide before and after school care to children attending Garett Hall Primary school and nursery.

We take regular outings to local play groups, soft play centres, local parks, garden centres and libraries. We also do baking, singing and go for walks around the local area, seeing animals, and boats. I have a small dog Alfie, who loves children. Having him at home helps children understand how to interact properly with pets and animals. 

As a parent myself to two children who have children of their own, I know how important choosing the right childcare is. I form positive relationships with all children. I work closely in partnership with parents and carers to ensure their child’s needs are met. 

I accept childcare vouchers and tax-free childcare payments, plus children who receive 15 or 30 hours free childcare. I provide healthy snacks and drinks to children, including those with special dietary requirements.

To keep you informed of your child’s progress and the daily activities, all children are provided with a daily diary, which parents are welcome to view and take home.

I regularly attend training sessions to make sure I am up to date with Ofsted, health & safety and safeguarding requirements.
