Below are the latest reviews for Paula. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

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!
