Paula has cared for all 3 of my children from being 6 months old. She genuinely feels like part of our family- my children love her and love going to her home. I am so thankful I found Paula on here and would 100% recommend her to anyone.
Paula is fantastic with the kids, she plans structured play, educational tasks, exercise etc into the day as well as having good fun with the kids. My children have come on so well with her , and she is great at working together with parents on things like toilet training , rewards etc. Paula is the most organised person I’ve ever met! And in the 5 years my kids have been going I have never been let down by her- she is reliable but most importantly really loves and cares about the kids.
A fantastic childminder!

Paula is a fantastic childminder and I would highly recommend her.
She has looked after our little boy from 6 months old, he is now nearly 5!!
He loves going to Paula's and always comes home having had a great adventure, be that just in her home/garden or out and about.
He has thrived here at Paula's both academically and socially. She is really great at picking up on children's different interests and developing it into fun learning, games and exploring.
We are going to miss Paula when he starts school in September but what a great start to his learning journey so far.
Cannot thank her enough.

My 2 children have both been cared for by Paula and I can't rate her highly enough. She has a no nonsense approach but the children adore her. She offers a huge range of activities and often takes them out. She communicates really well and is flexible wherever she can be. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. My 2 have come on leaps and bounds

I can't recommend Paula enough! She's absolutely brilliant with my little one (7 months) who I was initially worried about leaving with a childminder for the first time as he is very demanding and cries a lot! I've since noticed a positive change in my son. He's settled and all smiles and has grown quite fond of her. She keeps me updated throughout the day and sends pictures which I really appreciate! She's been extremely flexible with days/times. Just wish we could see her more often as I'm so pleased with the progress my son has made. I'm expecting my second in October and would not hesitate to use her again. So thankful to this lady!
