5 stars review of Pauline0 - Childminder in Wishaw


View Profile


5 stars Reviewed


We moved to the Wishaw area and had to find new childcare for my 1 year old son. We did not know anyone or the area and previously my son had attended nursery so initially I wasn't sure about sending him to a childminder. I read all the reviews and decided we would go fot it. Turns out I had nothing to worry about and was the best decision for us and our son. How lucky we were that Pauline had a space for the hours we needed. I can honestly say that every review on here is true.

Pauline is so friendly and welcoming, you can tell she just loves her job the minute you meet her. Our son loves going to Pauline's and they do so many different activities together. We get so many updates throughout the day and we are always told what he has been up to with his friends, when he was at nursery we got very little information on what he did so it's so nice to be so well informed. Pauline has a book which she writes up each day which comes home with our son, my older son always asks me to read it to him as he wants to find out what his brother has been doing.

I had been worried that he wouldn't be mixing with as many other kids as he would be at a nursery, but this was wrong as Pauline takes them out to childminding group, bookbug and soft play. While at Pauline's home in the brilliant playroom and garden he gets the added benefit of being part of smaller group which I believe is good for children as well. Pauline does great activities relating to the time of the year which means we have many lovely keepsakes that our son has made, at Christmas it just amazed me the number of things he made and they were so creative ideas.

But really if you are reading this considering childcare I can't recommend Pauline enough. My olders son's comment was that he wished he had stayed in Wishaw when he was younger so he could go to Paulines as well.

Hi Catri
Thank you for your kind words. Luca has settled in so well and loves our visits to toddlers,softplay,book bug and more
He is such a delight to care for and he is coming on so well and he loves the company of the other children and they treat him like a little brother Lucas loves all the activities that we do and he is always the first one at the table ready to start
