About Me

Hi, my name is Caroline, I live in Warmley Village, just off the A420, with my husband Paul who is also an Ofsted registered childminder, along with our two daughters, Leanne and Emilie, Tilly, Poppy and Jessie, our pets....along with fish in the garden pond ?
We have been childminding since 2001, and were last inspected in 14 December 2015 by Ofsted and were graded OUTSTANDING for the third consecutive inspection.

We don't want to bombard you with too much information about us..so a little snapshot is that we live next to Warmley Forest Park, which is a lovely outdoor space that we utilise to the full...from picnics, playing pooh sticks, going for walks etc. We are members of Westonbirt Arboretum which the children love to have free space to climb trees, build dens, etc.

We attend a local childminding group and have fun days out at places like Willsbridge Mill, Bristol Zoo, Chew Valley Lakes, Various Parks, Softplay etc

We like to think that we offer a nurturing, safe, fun, friendly and stimulating enviornment for children to learn and grow, into confident, independent little people, whilst following the Early Years Foundation Stage framework.

We do have a prospectus that we hope gives families all the information a family would like to know about us and our childminding services, if you would like a copy, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you.

Caroline and Paul

My Experience

Along with caring for our own daughters, who are now 22 and 28, Paul and I have been childminding since May 2001.
We like to think we provide a nurturing setting for children. Allowing them to be children, where they learn whilst playing ?

My daughter absolutely loves going to Caroline and Paul's. They provide a really lovely family environment which nurtures all areas of development with the children. Our daughter is making great progress in all areas such as speech, imaginative play, sharing, being independent etc and it is clear that what we do at home with her is reinforced and supported with Caroline and Paul. They also track her progress and provide us with regular updates which is great. We couldn't ask for anyone better to look after our little girl, they're brilliant!

My Daughter has been with Caroline and Paul since Oct 2013.

They were both so welcoming, friendly and clearly great with children so my daughter settled in very quickly.

She has been incredibly happy with them and is leaving this week because we have moved out of Bristol but I think they have really helped her to grow and develop. She is a confident, chatty child and I'm sure they have something to do with this.

They always do fun things with the children and Layla has really enjoyed being there, we will all miss them as a family.

It was a tough decision to go back to work knowing our little boy would be being looked after by someone else and the worty that we wouldn't find anyobeir anywhere suitable was playing on ny mind, however fron the first meeting with Caroline and Paul we were instantly put at ease! From the first step inside their warm and inviting house ti their koving nature towards children we knew it was the right pkace for our little man to learn, grow and have lots of fun.

They are very creative with finding new, exciting and fun learning arts and crafts as well as fantastic days out. I can honestly say Harrisons speach has cone on leaps and bounds since starting there when he was just over 1!

Its wonderful knowing he's in great hands when leaving in a norning and all the smiles you get when asking him what he has been up to when picking him up!

We would definately recommend Caroline and Paul very highly and appreciate all their help and flexibility they offer, they are fantastic! I only hope they can accomodate baby number 2 when we are lucky enough to have one!
