Paula was very helpful with my son and he enjoyed going to her place. She was flexible and could accommodate extra hours whenever I needed it even on short notice. She is very professional, welcoming, calm and has lots of patience in dealing with my son. She offered to pick up and drop off which was very helpful and she was always punctual. I would highly recommend her services and is not surprising that she is rated outstanding by Ofsted.
Paula is the best childminder I could of ever wished for. She always goes out of her way to make sure the children are looked after and happy and safe. My son is always so excited to go to Paula’s, so much so that he requested to go on his birthday instead of coming home early! Paula has made him feel like a part of the family and I can’t thank her enough for showing so much love and care to him! Paula has also been so flexible with dates and times etc to help me.
The setting is such a lovely place and my son enjoys the playhouse so much! He enjoys having his own space to be creative but also loves it when Paula helps him with tasks! He has made such amazing progress since he was welcomed into the environment and has been nurtured and allowed to grow.
My son has been in nursery’s and preschools for 3 years prior to meeting Paula and he says she is ‘the bestest of the best’ and is his ‘favourite person to look after me, even better than nana’!
I won’t send Leo to anybody else now. Paula is my only choice!
I can't speak highly enough of Paula's professional care for my son, now of school age. He was very well nurtured under Paula's care for four days a week from aged 10 months to 5 years old. Paula's pet and smoke free home was always clean and tidy and she provided a varied selection of nutritious and healthy food and snacks. Paula was really flexible when my son was first settling in, but from the very beginning he was incredibly happy there. She kept a full log of his daily routines, in the early days it was all about milk, food and dirty nappies (which reassured me as a working mum) but this also included a record of his personal, social and learning developments with lots of pictures and examples of his creativity. We still hang his home made baubles on our Christmas tree! I continue to treasure these memories as I wasn’t organised enough to do as much of this at home.
We had a regular routine of weekly care and I was able to use ‘Childcare Vouchers’ which were saved via my employer. I was delighted about this as there are some tax savings for working parents and I continue to use them at school. We moved from full-time care to after school care once my Son started nursery. I had other childcare options by this stage but we were so happy with Paula that our arrangement continued until he started Reception. Paula was flexible enough to accept term time only care from day one. This was invaluable to us, practically and financially as my husband works in a school. Very few other Childcare services offered this option at the time.
There is no doubt that Paula takes her responsibilities very seriously. She strictly observes the child to adult ratios and does not employ ‘assistants’; caring for each child herself, personally. I’d recommend parents consider this of any prospective Childminder.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Paula’s services. Don’t delay; because of her superb standards she rarely has any vacancies.
Paula was looking after my son from when he was 18 months old until he was 5. My son was always keen to go to Paula’s as she is really into The job and has lots of different activities prepared for The children each day. My son’s development was fantastic. He was quite shy boy ( as he was The only child at The time) but being at Paula’s gave him lots of confidence around Other children. They were doing lots of funny exercises like singing, painting, playing with The water and sand, reading stories from The books, going to The library, going to The bouncy castles, legoland, Sea World or galleries. When I found out that I am going to have a second child, The only Childminder I was going to consider was Paula. She is extremely warm and nice person. My children absolutely loved Paula! I honestly think that being a Childminder is her calling. I cannot recommend Paula highly enough! If you want to leave your child with The best Childminder, Paula is definitely The right person.
Paula is the best child minder I have ever had, she's very welcoming and helpful. She went out of her way to accommodate my daughters needs. Her place is set up in a very child friendly and professional manner. My daughter adored her and loved staying with her and I was rest assured and had no worries while she was with Paula. I recommend Paula to any mom's looking for a polite, caring, considerate and professional minder. Thanks again Paula xxx
