About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

Hello, my name is Jennifer and I am 42 years old. I have been a childminder for 6 years.
I live with my husband who is home based. We have been blessed with five great children, 3 girls and 2 boys, aged 24, 21, 16, and 12 years of age with the youngest being 6 years old. We love children and have always wanted a big family. We are a close unit and have understood the importance of this.

My Experience

I have worked as an assistant to a registered childminder, (she has been established for over 3 years), this, was in the run up to becoming a registered childminder myself. During this time, I had in house training for her work setting. I became a key worker for some of the children. I learnt so much during my years as an assistant as I saw first-hand how everything was done or needed to be done.

My Qualifications

I have a level 3 Diploma for the children and young people’s workforce, which is recognised by our local authority. I am OFSTED registered and an accredited childminder. I have completed my paediatric first aid training, advanced level 3 in Safeguarding children course as well as my level 2 food hygiene course. I am fully insured through childcare.co.uk as a Gold member.

My Availability

Stourfield Infants and Junior School drop off and pick ups. Set fees and hours AM & PM.

Below are the latest reviews for Honeybees. 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.

After returning to work part time when our daughter was 8 months old I had to make sure I found a safe & loving family for her to go to. Honeybees is all of that and more. Jen, Adam & Elle have really made a difficult decision that much easier knowing my daughter is well looked after. In a year and a half of going there has never been any hesitation from the little one at the door. She is always happy to see Elle and Jen and the feeling seems genuinely mutual. We get regular updates on what they get up to and a variety of arts and crafts adorn our walls as a result of their hard work. I cannot recommend them enough.

My daughter has been attending Southbourne Honey Bees for almost 3 years and she loves it! It's a kind, warm and inviting environment and I wouldn't have her go anywhere else! It's fantastic!

Our two year old has been attending honeybees 3 days a week for 6 months now & loves it. Jen offers a safe, warm, family centred environment & we feel confident that our daughter is cared for here as much as she is at home. In addition she gets the benefit of learning to mix with another family & other children of different ages (who are all lovely too!). We are regularly kept updated on our daughters development & little milestones & feel we are able to really work positively together on any challenges we may face, including the usual two year old behavioural ones - for example learning to share.
The children are exposed to a wide range of activities & fun experiences, our fridge is now covered in art & we always have plenty to chat about at bedtime, games played & adventures had whilst out & about at the beach or the park.
We have also found it immensely helpful as first time parents to have the benefit of advice & support from two experienced parents who are also trained as professional child carers.

I went back to work when my little boy turned one and it was very reassuring to have found Jen. He has been at Honey bee for over a year and loves it. Jen and Adam are great with him. He has a stable yet flexible routine with them. They do loads of activities and have a good amount of time outside. He has lots of yummy and varied food. If I ever want to talk anything through or ask Jen for advice she is more than willing. I really like the combination on Jen and Adam giving my little one a good balance. I thoroughly recommend them.
