Julie’s Bio

I absolutely adore children and have had my own home daycare for over 15 years now. I will give your children mostly Organic and/or natural homemade meals, no junk food/snacks or drinks. My focus when caring for your child is safety, learning through play, and having a lot of fun!!
If you are interested in full or part time daycare for your child, I can offer you:
- a safe child-friendly environment where they will be closely supervised at all times.
- your child will get plenty of interaction with a few other kids, but not so many that your child's needs are over-looked.
- a clean home full of toys (baby to school age).
- one-on-one teaching time for age appropriate skills (numbers, colors, Abc's), with workbooks for the kids over 3 and learning toys and games for the younger ones.
- absolutely no junk food, healthy home-made meals and snacks, mostly
Organic and/or natural.
- tons of outside play time. We have several parks within walking distance
and have daily indoor play dates with several other neighborhood children in the winter.
I am incredibly active and playful. I love to get down on the floor and engage the children in imaginative free play...and can chase the fastest little toddler all around!! Since I have watched children full-time for over 15 years now, I also have vast experience with just about everything child-related. I can smoothly handle any and all circumstances that may come up with your child (separation anxiety, emergency situations, food allergies). I can also assist you with transitions like bottle to cup, 2 naps to 1, potty training, etc.

I am CPR Certified, mature, patient and 100% reliable. I would also be happy to provide several other references upon request. I look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in home daycare.

In our quest for looking for child care, we were unclear as to what environment we wanted our son to be in whether it be a nanny, daycare, or home day care facility. After discussion we decided that we wanted our son to interact with other children mainly for socialization, but we did not want him to be in an environment where there were too many children and it would be difficult for him to thrive.

I was so lucky to find Julie through sittercity.com. Her home day care was exactly the environment that we wanted our son Jackson to be in. Since he has been 3 months old, Julie has done an exceptional job taking care of him. She is diligent about keeping him on a schedule. In fact, she has been even more consistent with his nap schedule than his own parents! She always asks us prior to giving him any new foods. She encourages language development through baby sign language, songs, and books. In the summer time, she takes them on walks to the park or to the neighbors where they can play with the other neigborhood children. She also encourages his creative side, through arts and crafts and music. She limits television time to further stimulate socialization with the other children.

As for my husband and I, she maintains a very flexible schedule with respect to days and times. Additionally, she provides us with pertinent updates on how our son did that day no matter if he was good or bad.

We feel that Jackson has benefited from not only the home day care environment, but also from the stellar job that Julie has done. Each milestone that he has gone through has been further encouraged not only by Julie, but also by the other children she cares for. I remember when Jackson started to crawl, the other children were encouraging that behavior and were even more excited when Jackson was able to chase after them. It was so reassuring to know that I do not have to worry about him developing his motor, social, and emotional skills in this safe environment. We couldn't have happier to have found Julie and her home day care.

Our 8 month old daughter has been with Julie since she was 3 months old. As a new mom it was difficult to find someone we felt comfortable watching our child. After meeting Julie, my husband and I were excited- we both liked her right away. Her personality is high energy, she's warm, and laughs often.

She is always excited to see our daughter and writes in a book what she does each day. We really appreciate Julie's great communication. One time Julie called late morning to let me know our daughter's eating seemed off, but she wasn't feverish or even fussy- Julie just wanted to give me a heads up early on so I didn't pick her up and hear it for the first time after work. I really appreciated that- it shows me that she's thoughtful and proactive.

Our 21 month old son attends Julie's daycare 2 days week. We originally thought a nanny was the best route for us, but wanted him to have other kids to play with and grow socially as well. Julie has always been extremely flexible with scheduling in order to help accommodate our childcare needs. More importantly, Julie nurtures the children through offering healthy meals and age appropriate structure of play and sleep. I appreciate being able to go to work knowing my son is happy, healthy and loved! He is always coming home with a new skill or word he learned!

I interviewed Julie and visited her home when exploring childcare options for my 20-month old. Ultimately, we decided that a nanny was a better fit for our family's needs, but was very impressed with Julie and her childcare set up. She seems very honest, organized and really seems to love the little ones in her care (who all seemed very content, happy and well-cared for during my visit). I am hoping that I'll be able to use Julie's daycare in the future if/when she has some availability as a back-up for my nanny. But if you're looking for a great daycare option, I would encourage you to contact Julie. I think you will be happy you did.

I found Julie on Sittercity after the sitter I had been using had an unexpected health emergency. I have been so pleased with the care my infant son has been receiving. He is always happy and well cared for at her home. Julie truly loves the children in her care and keeps a wonderful log of my son's day to keep me up to date. I would highly recommend Julie's daycare.

Our son has been going to Julie's daycare for a little less than a month and we couldn't be happier! She is exactly what you want in a childcare provider all wrapped up into one fabulous package! She has an upbeat, positive, bubbly personality that kids just revel in. Her energy seems unending. Our son has a physical issue and Julie has taken the time to work with him and listen to our needs and concerns. We really feel like she hears us and she always makes us feel comfortable with giving her feedback (although it's always positive!). Her adult to child ratio is awesome (1 adult to 2 kids) and we really feel like all of the kids get a ton of love and interaction. I can't say enough positive things about Julie and her "helpers". I am SO glad we found her!!!

My 22 month old daughter has been going to Julie's 3 days a week since January. I can't say enough good things about Julie and her team - it look awhile for my daughter to warm up to daycare since she didn't start going until she was 16 months old but Julie was incredibly patient with her and would give me updates during the day to let me know how she was doing. Now, my daughter cries when its time to leave! Julie is also very flexible and accomodating for my unusual work schedule which you just can't find anywhere else in the city. And lastly, I swear she comes home cleaner than when I sent her in the morning! I can't recommend Julie enough! 7/31/12
