Below are the latest reviews for paulabk. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Paula is just the best! Our son has been with her for 4 months and we couldn’t be happier - she makes leaving him during the week bearable. They seem to spend an equal amount of time in and out of the house - we either hear of a trip to a local park/farm or are presented with a piece of art ... or baked goods!! Maxwell’s social skills and talking has come on and even his football skills from playing in the garden with her children. We get digital updates on how Maxwell is doing with pictures. Paula’s house is warm, friendly and full of noise, and Maxwell looks right at home when we pick him up!

Our son was looked after by Paula until he was 4 and a half years old . He started with her when he was only 10 months. When we met Paula we immediately felt a warm and caring environment would be given to our son and he was always happy being in her care. We wanted someone who was on the same page as us where routine was concerned and Paula was the perfect fit.

She always made his days exciting by taking him out on fun excursions, from the park, farm, play dates and play centres.

Paula is an exceptional childminder who provides not only a safe environment for kids but also a fun, exciting playing space for the kids to enjoy. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone who is searching for a warm and carefree environment for their tiny tots. She always went the extra mile to make our son feel part of her family.

If it wasn't for my son attending a different school to her kids I would most certainly have continued childcare with her. We will still use Paula's babysitting services in future as we'd like to continue our son knowing her as well maintaining friendships he's built with her younger kids.

No doubt, Paula is a superstar!!!

Paula has been our childminder since our daughter was 9 months old. One of our main requirements when searching for childcare was that we wanted our daughter to be looked after in a home which has the same values as us. Our daughter is now 2.5yrs old and enjoys every day she spends with Paula. As we have another baby on the way, we will be regrettably leaving Paula in September 2015. We couldn't have asked for a better environment for our daughter and feel so lucky that we have had the chance to get to know Paula and her family.
