About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hello and Thankyou for reading my profile. My current availability for under 5s are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
My name is Paula Reynolds. I Live in Heanor with my husband and 3 children who are 10, 15 and 17. My husband works full time as a security engineer. I have been a childminder for over 8 years now and have achieved a good rating from Ofsted in my last inspection on 12/07/2017. We visit many places such as the library, parks, play centres, farms and toddler groups. Planned outings will take place with consent from parents. At the moment I am able to do drop offs at Coppice Primary school and nursery pick up at lunch time. I own a car and have a full uk licence, which is insured to use in my business. I do have a dog called Honey, she’s a pug. She loves children and the children love her. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone.
I do not work bank holidays, but fees will still be due if your child attends the days that a bank holiday falls on. If a child is off sick fees are still due. Once a place is booked fees will be due even if non attendance for any other reason. If I’m off sick or on holiday fees do not need to be paid. Thankyou for reading my profile.

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 son was looked after by Paula from around 5 months old, until he was just over 2 years old. My son never had a problem being left with Paula, which gave me great peace of mind. He enjoyed his time with her and I liked that he was in a family setting as he was just a baby. He also loved the family dog Honey. Paula went out of her way to help me at times which was greatly appreciated.
