About Me

My name is Paula, I am an experienced Ofsted registered childminder. I'm a fun energetic person, I offer a safe and secure stimulating environment, with an emphasis on learning through play. I find caring for children very rewarding and offer all children in my care encouragement, love and kindness. I regularly visit local playgroups, music groups, parks, libraries,and farms, I also provide many activities such as messy play, arts & crafts, cooking. Also celebrate and plan for festivals and other religions. I drive when needed and provide Healthy meals. and cater for all Dietary needs when requested. I am very professional and enthusiastic towards my work, providing a home away from home for every child. I am very understanding of the needs of the parents as I fully understand the difficulties that can arise during a working life. My setting is situated around lovely countryside and forests. We are close to the M25 and have a buses that go to Chingford and Walthamstow station. also a ten minute walk to Yardley Primary school and Nursery.

My Experience

I have worked in childcare for 22 years, I have worked within a nursery setting as a senior nursery nurse for 18 years, I have been childminding for 5 years and i absolutely love my job, I'm also a mum myself so i have vast amounts of childcare experience. I am flexible to parents needs as I understand juggling work and family commitments can be quite challenging.

I was very hesitant on leaving my young child in a new environment but when I met Paula, I was put at ease. My child loves the setting and is very happy. He learns new things and I am so proud at how confident he has become. Paula Keeps me updated with my child’s progress, uses a great portal to communicate with me and is very friendly and kind. Being a single working mother, I feel as if Paula has become somewhat of a great support system to me. Paula is very professional, I genuinely recommend her. My child has build s great bond with her. That’s amazing as he used to be very timid and shy. Thank you Paula :)

I can’t believe how happy my daughter is here! I’ve never seen her this excited to go anywhere. I love the quality of services and organisation of the child minder. I get to see my daughter’s progress and list of activites as well as meal plan for her online. Paula is just absolutely brilliant. I feel so confident sending my daughter to Paula knowing that my daughter is getting the best quality of care. I highly recommend this child minder. You truly have exceeded my expectations Paula, I’m very happy, thank you.

Paula is absolutely amazing. She is always so calm and cheerful. My daughters, think she is wonderful. They (well the one who can talk) come home bursting with news of their day and the fun things they have done. My younger daughter was really shy of being with other people but three days with Paula and she held out her arms for a cuddle. I have felt so comfortable leaving my darlings with Paula and it had made my return to work after maternity leave so much easier.

I have always used nurseries as the preferred childcare route for my children but after a bad experience with the latest nursery I needed to find an alternative childcare provider that was flexible and allowed me to leave my daughter in the care of someone that put my mind at ease.
When I leave my daughter with Paula I am confident that my daughter will be well looked after. She comes home looking well cared for and happy.
Her book that Paula provides is well filled out so I know what activities they have done throughout the day and what she has eaten.
The experience with a childminder has been really positive and I am happy that my daughter is getting the attention she deserves to help her in her development stages.

Very helpful and reliable child minder. The kids love her. Great wit the kids. Spotless home. Couldn't ask for anything more in someone who is looking after your children she treats them like her own.
