I used honeybees childminding service on a short term basis as my husband had started a new job and had to train away from home.
As i had never used a childminder before I was not really 'up to speed' with processes etc and was a little apprehensive.

Ila made straight away put me at ease, she explained the process and the paperwork and what she would be doing for my 6 year old son.

Lucas really enjoyed his time with her. He really liked his one to one time which he doesn't always get at home due to having a younger sister. There was always an activity, whether it was going out for a walk, painting, model building or baking. He settled in right away and still now asks when he can go to Ila's to play.

I would definitely recommend Honeybees Childminding and will not hesitate to use them again if needed.

Illha was excellent with my child. I always felt my daughter was in safe hands and many a time Illha helped me out last minute. I used Illha regularly every week for a couple of years.
She also helped my daughter eat better encouraging her. And even gave her education doing her homework and extra input for maths as she was struggling.

We became good friends as she has always been there for us as a single mum myself.

Please make sure you read all the terms because she wants to get contract signed on blank form. Also she changes terms every month. When I asked about the price increase she didn't wrote next day I was called at home and she terminated contract. We had done the contract for 28 days and when was down to renew contract she wanted my signature on blank form on official contract.. When I declined to signed a copy i was been sent an email to terminate the contract. Please be mindful of if you are Keeping you child please read her terms an condition they alter.

Thanks for reading and good luck

Illa (Honeybees) came to home every day to look after my seven month old baby whilst I worked from home. She was fantastic in every way with my son and he enjoyed every moment with her. Illa is kind, loving and is very reliable. I would definitely recommend her!

Best wishes
