Hi, and welcome to our website here at PJ's in Cullompton

My name is Paula and together with my partner Paul we both run a registered childminding setting which was awarded with an "OUTSTANDING " grade by ofsted (the regulatory body).in 2010 and 2015

Our setting which has now been in operation since 2008 initially had been awarded a "GOOD" overall grading but has been improved on constantly to reach Outstanding in 2010 and was inspected again in 2015 when we maintained the same great "Outstanding " grade

(follow the link here to see the full report)

I (Paula) was born and raised initially in Tiverton but moved to live in Cullompton Devon,where I have two grown up children, a little girl who is aged 9 and also my grandaughter who is aged (although only my 9yr old daughter is resident in the house which we operate the childminding business from)

Paul originally hails from Liverpool, but moved down to Devon over 10 years ago and also has an 18 year old daughter still living in Liverpool but who visits us and stays over on a regular basis.

We have a nice safe fenced in garden with both lawned and patio areas,a trampoline with safety netting,a large wooden wendy house, mud kitchen area, plant growing areas, outdoor water tray, and a large selection of various sit and ride toys.Our setting predominantly takes place in the ground floor of our own home, which includes a separate downstairs toilet area-- sleeping/resting facilities for the childrens use and quiet areas for them when needed.

On a daily basis, we endeavour to always cover/address the areas of the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) learning programmes.

(see separate page for these details and what they cover ) as well as daily outdoor exercise of one form or another to give them much needed physical activity..

We are well known in the local area of Cullompton where we can be seen out and about most days at various places such as the Libraries, Play parks, Play groups etc.

We enjoy excellent links to all local schools and pre schools such as Noahs Ark, Willowbank Primary, St Andrews, and Cullompton Pre School, and we can also, (dependant on exact needs) sometimes make pick ups and drop offs to the Duchy Pre School in Bradninch but we should point out that through 2018 and for the forseeable our main 2 links will be with Noahs Ark ( as we have dual attendees there) and St Andrews Primary as we currently also run the After School Provision there from 3.30

We constantly attend local toddler groups and playcentres, childrens centres, trips out to local attractions such as playzones, libraries, beaches, train rides etc,which are inclusive of the costs of fees paid.

In September 2015 we moved our after school side of the setting over to St.Andrews school where we now run PJs Stay&Play club from 3.30 to 6pm every school term day.
