I came from a Daycare Center chain that was supposed to be top notch. My heart would sink knowing I would have to drop my daughter off every day at that center.
I found Paula online and we had a meet & greet within a week. I instantly felt a connection and my heart was at ease. My daughter has been there for about 3 years now and she has developed and learned so much!
I wish Ms. Paula would extend her Daycare to Elementary School, Middle School and even High School! She is more then just a teacher, she is a huge part of my child's life making her more like family! Thank you Ms. Paula for all you do, teach and care for my daughter

I researched many daycare facilities (both in home licensed daycares and the normal daycare "chains") in Lake County, IL. I found Paula's rates to be the most affordable.

When obtaining the rates from the other licensed facilities, I asked each one my list of standard questions. To be fair, all of them seemed "ok" but not anything out of the ordinary. Therefore, after all the horrid things heard in the news, I still struggled intensely with choosing a place where my child wouldn't be with someone who on the surface appeared "ok". I didn't want my child to just be another paycheck to a daycare facility.

When speaking with Paula, she was not only able to speak about the "daycare norms" but also with a passion and deep understanding of no child is the same. She also has many years of experience and a reasonable approach. I didn't feel like my son was a paycheck, it felt more like a new place for him to grow; which he has immensely since he's joined there!

I feel she helps a lot of parents with coaching them and supporting them on how to potty train, temper tantrums and other common issues parents and children struggle with. This alone is a major benefit for most parents, as sometimes we can use the "back up" when our little monsters and angels are "human" :)

I highly recommend this licensed daycare based on; 1. Saftey; 2. Knowledge; 3. Affordability; 4. Last bit not least - the joy of telling my child that Paula loves him and misses him when he is ill and not there, and knowing it's true. <3

For the world is full of "good people" that sometimes make bad choices. I am completely confident that no matter what arises that Paula keeps a cool head and does not shy away from the problem and all the children's saftey is top priority.

We are very blessed to have her walk with us on our journey of life.

We couldn't ask for a better place for our son. Our son has made gains in all areas of development and we couldn't be happier! It puts us at ease leaving him at Paula's and knowing that she loves him as much as we do.

Paula is an amazing child care provider. Our 15 month old son Salvador has been with Paula since January 2014 and before that he was only cared for by close family members. Paula is so patient and loving he immediately felt comfortable and became part of her home and family. Paula's home is clean and safe, her family is incredibly supportive, respectful and loving as well. We were new to the area and I was extremely worried about finding a caring, safe, and loving atmosphere for our son. Paula is all of these! We are so thankful to have found Pau's Play Place and Paula's family. I know my son is well cared for, well fed, has time to play and rest and is happy during the day. When I go pick him up he often doesn't want to leave because he is having so much fun with his friends! She is wonderful. If you are looking for a child care provider in this area call Paula first!

My son Gabriel has been going to Paula's For about 6 months now. Paula was referred by a friend. I am very happy with the wonderful job that Paula does taking care and teaching Gabriel! Gabriel is happy & excited every morning when I drop him off at Paula's. Paula is a very patient & caring person. Gabriel has learned so much from going to Paula's. He's become more independent and plays well with other kids. Paula has good communication with me and gives me ideas & tips on how to work with Gabriel at home as well. Pau's play place is very clean & organized. I highly recommend Pau's play place!

I had my son Alex who's 14 months enrolled at Pau's Play Place and we both loved it!! We move out of the are and that's the only reason why we have to switch daycares. I recommend it as we had a great positive experience and my son was not only happy but he learned a lot.

I was referred to Paula through a friend of mine and my decision to meet her was the best decision I could have made! My son Cuyler has been seeing Paula for about 6 months now and we couldn't be happier! Cuyler is talking more, he shares his toys, and he's become quite the healthy eater! The atmosphere is great, organized, cleanly, child proof, and FUN! Thank you Paula for taking care of my pride and joy!
