"Julie has changed our life - we had two
non sleeping children under the age of 3 and were increasingly struggling
mentally and physically. Julie came in and gave us so much positive support and
advice - within 6 weeks we have gone from having at most 4-5 hours of sleep a
night to almost unbroken sleep most nights. She has helped us rebuild as a
family and we will always be hugely grateful to her for this. We would (and
already have) recommended her to friends. Her unwavering positive approach is
"Julie is a miracle worker! She's
helping me to sleep train my non-sleeping 2 and a half year old and the results
have been life changing! My little one has been gently taught how to self
settle following brilliant advice and ideas from Julie. She is kind and so
natural with my little girl. Next step is to get my child to sleep through the
night and with Julie's advice I'm so confident it will happen! Highly recommend
to exhausted mums and dads in need of sleep advice or indeed any other parenting
support you need. Affordable too and worth every penny!"
"Julie looked after my son for 9 days
while I went away, she did such a fab job and made me feel so at ease!
Would 1000% recommend!!"
"I wouldn't Trust my children with
anybody else but Julie she is caring ,patient and my girls love her
I highly recommend this lady"
"My son had never been with anyone
other than myself and my husband and his nans before we moved to Ashford,
straight away he was very comfortable with Julie and she made him feel very at
home.. he loves going round to hers for the day and doesn't even glance back..
he's come on leaps and bounds with his socialising.. couldn't recommend her
"I'd like to thank Julie for helping
us out at short-notice on several occasions. The boys always enjoy their time
with and feel happy secure in her company.
We would highly recommend her to other parents."
"We love Julie! She’s amazing. I was
extremely nervous about leaving my son as he’d only been with close friends and
family before but as soon as I met Julie I felt comfortable and confident in
her and her services. My son loves his time with Julie as well as my daughter
before and after school. Would highly recommend!"
"Julie is a natural with children, my
daughter had never been away from me and at 2 I really thought we would have
problems, as soon as she met Julie she loved her, Julie got straight involved
playing and talking to her, I'm so grateful to of met such a lovely childminder.
Julie offers flexible childcare, to try and suit what we needed. She arranges
meal plans around what your child eats and is open to alternatives should the
child not eat what is offered. Amazing lady and we are so grateful for the high
standard of care she gives our daughter. Thank you."
"Julie has been child minding for my
son for a month and he has settled in really well considering I haven't left
him with anyone before , he enjoys a range of activities and I feel happy that
he is well looked after in Julie's care."
"Julie provides absolutely outstanding
care for my son Henry. A lovely home environment but more importantly Julie
herself is warm, loving, fun and nurturing, combined with being extremely
professional too. Henry adores her and doesn't want to leave when I collect
him! It enables me to work without even the slightest of concerns about his
care and I know he will be engaged in fun educational activities. Like all
parents I do not take my choice of childcare lightly but I can not imagine
feeling this comfortable leaving my son with anyone else! Highly recommend
Julie for a multitude of positive reasons. Perfect xxxx "
"Julie looked after Charlie after
school and before school on occasion - what was most important for me was that
he always wanted and enjoyed going.
I was always impressed at the teas Julie cooked and the range of activities on
Would highly recommend Julie’s childminding service."

"Babes in the Wood is a first class agency who listened to our needs and found us the perfect nanny to care for our baby.Working with Babes In The Wood is always professional and we continue to be impressed with the consistent high quality level of service. Thank you so much for all your help!"
"My boys had never been to a
childminder before but when our circumstances changed we needed to find one
that could look after our boys after school. Julie was recommended to us by a
parent at their school and we are so grateful that she put us in touch with
her. When I picked them up the first time they were laughing and having great
fun in the garden on a mini beast hunt - it was as if they'd been going to
Julie's for years, not just for a couple of hours. We've used Julie since and
the boys love going to her. They're always doing something practical,
educational and more importantly fun! She has an excellent rapport with the
kids and they totally respect her and her lovely home. Julie is obliging and
has helped us out at very short notice before too.
My husband and I really couldn't recommend her and her company enough."
"Outstanding service ⭐️Julie looked after my son when I returned to work.
She made the transition easier with the way she just cares and is so
professional. I would highly recommend Julie. The children love her."
Mrs Carroll - ST. JOHN'S WOOD, LONDON
"I can't rate Julie or the service she
offers highly enough. I was very happy with the care my daughter received and
would definitely recommend Babes in the Wood's services."
"Julie cared for my two daughters
after school hours so I could attend uni. Julie collected and returned my
daughters which made things very stress free for me. My daughters enjoyed their
time with Julie and they always looked forward to spending time with her. It
was very reassuring to know my girls were safe and happy.
I now have a young baby and have asked Julie to care for my son when I return
Julie is an expert in her field and has many years of experience. "

lady, my son was always safe and happy. Julie would always have good activities

Mrs Jowers - ASHFORD, KENT
"We first contacted Julie for advice
about a nanny nearly 4 years ago, but when we discovered she also childminded
herself and could do the before and after school sessions for our school, we
were thrilled. Both our children enjoy being with Julie and, as parents, the
flexibility she offers is fabulous. I would definitely recommend Babes in the
Wood and also suggest you contact Julie about your childminding or nanny needs."
Mr & Mrs Dean - HOTHFIELD, KENT
"We have used Babes in the Wood as our childcare service for our 4 year old son since he was 10 months old. We have found the service to be excellent and the owner of the Agency to be extremely reliable, loyal and trustworthy. We have also been very impressed by the flexibility of the service i.e. we have been accommodated in our childcare requirements at short notice, at unsociable times i.e. early mornings etc. due to work schedules and commitments. It is a very reliable service for parents."
