Jo and Paul are fantastic child care providers. They have a home from home setting, which is exactly what I wanted for my 3 year old son and 10 year old daughter. Both my children love going to Jo & Paul's. My 10 year old daughter was given the choice between going to theirs or after school club (where a lot of her friends go) and she chose to go to theirs - that speaks volumes! Jo & Paul are friendly and caring. It was difficult for me to leave my youngest because I'd never done it before, id never had a childminder because id been a stay-at-home mum for almost 14 years! However, my mind was soon put at ease and I knew quickly that my son was very happy with them. They take him on days out all over the place - Nottingham Forest, the railway museum, Hemsworth Water Park (to name a few) and he always has such a great time and talks about what he's seen and learnt with such enthusiasm. He has already, in just a few months, built bonds with Jo & Paul and speaks very fondly of them. I like how they look at each child individually. They find out their likes and dislikes and tailor the child care to suit, even having particular toys or days out following what a child is interested in. I say child care but they go above and beyond that really. I couldn't be happier with the level of care my children get and cannot thank Jo and Paul enough for all they do.
