Julie Machin

I have been a registered childminder forover 30 yearsand hold an NVQ 3 qualification in Childcare. I am situated in a pleasant location close to Stanley Park and also close to the M55 motorway. I am a proud mother of five sons, four of which are now adults.

My setting has a clean, safe, warm friendly atmosphere where it is obvious that the children are well cared for in a family atmosphere. I attend local children centres which offer drama, music, messy playlots of other activities to give the children lots of stimulation. We also meet with the rangers weekly where we have access to lots of outdoor activities like a forest school. I meet up with other childminders where the children all play and eat together, enjoying activities allowing them to experience being in a larger group, still receiving the3 to 1 ratio.

My own setting boasts, aspacious well equipped house and a garden where we enjoy den building, stepping stones, growing our own fruit and vegetables, making hedgehog and bug homes, wormery etc. We also visit our local park, zoo and nature reserve which is a short walk from my home.I am up to date with allrelevant training to include food hygiene, safeguarding and first aid.Ihave excellent references fromparentsof the children who I am currently caring for, some of whom I havecared for their siblings.

Healthy meals and snacks are included in my fees along with the zoo and sea life passes I purchase yearly. I also offer a free two hour taster session just before you are due to start your child with myself. I complete the 2year check for the health visitor and parents along with the Pre-school profile for when your child starts school. I also share a progress book with you. recording your child's achievements which you will take away once your child leaves my setting.

Please feel free to visit my setting.
