Hi there my name is Rene and I am a mother of a lovely 7 year old little girl. I run a Ofsted childminding/daycare from a warm and clean family environment. Our team is made up of 3 adults, including myself all qualified and paediatric first aid trained. During these challenging times, we have been catering and helping all families and of course critical workers care for their children to the best of our ability. Flexible, friendly and professional we currently have availabilities for both full and part timers for 2021! Happy New Year to all :)

Chez Mama Bear offers a warm and flexible environment working around the clock to ensure that both children and caregivers feel supported. We are open from Monday- Thursday 8:00 - 18:00 and weekends per request, but can happily cater for families who need more flexible times. We also offer a last minute drop off service for families with emergencies. We have a healthy extensive menu, all organically sourced when possible and are happy to cater for children with specific dietary requirements.
At Mama Bear we understand the importance of keeping our children safe, healthy and happy whilst adhering to the EYFS Statutory Framework. Our activities are based around the 7 Areas of Learning and aim to help the child with social, interpersonal skills, and preparing for their educational careers. We also understand the importance of communicating with parents and caregivers by having regular discussions and journals updates.
We are located in the heart of Holland Park, just off High Street Kensington and 5 min walk from the park's ecology center, tennis courts and play areas available.

Our son has attended Chez Mama Bear from when he was 6 months old and it was the best childcare choice we could have made. The dedication poured into each child truly shows!
Rene was accommodating from the start, giving me a peace of mind during the day. I could always drop a message asking how his day was and there would be a reply with a picture waiting for me- this also meant we never missed a milestone! I never felt as if I couldn’t ask something, communication with Rene was always easy and comfortable!
Over the years we have accumulated lots of art and crafts made by our son, and we can look back and see his progress and creativity. Rene really encourages individuality; celebrating lots of national days and with a wide range of lunches from different cuisines offered throughout the month.
We were so lucky to find Chez Mama Bear, and cannot recommend it enough!
My daughter has been attending Rene's provision from the age of 11 months.
Rene has been incredibly supportive and caring from the very beginning.
For my daughter, it was the first time away from me and Rene has shown incredible dedication in ensuring she would adapt quickly and would feel at home.
Chez mama Bear is really a home away from home and I recommend it highly to any parents seeking for a calm and comforting environment where children can grow and thrive with the support of splendid care and the interaction of other children.
I am so glad I found Rene to look after my daughter. Rene has been childminding my daughter since she was one year old for roughly 3 years, 3 days a week.
I have been extremely happy with the care my daughter has received; Rene has always been caring, able to understand my daughter’s needs whatever they may be and puts her at ease in any circumstance. Not only has she been supportive towards the children but also is equally supporting with parents, giving advice when I needed and being consistently available to help should I have any concerns.
I have been very satisfied with the great progress my daughter has made whilst in Rene’s care, especially over the last year, learning letters and numbers in preparation for Reception. Further to this she provides many different fun activities like arts and crafts, drawing and sticking, painting, reading as well as outdoors activities. During the summer period the children can also enjoy a paddling pool in the garden which is an excellent addition.
Rene always provides the children with freshly cooked healthy meals and snacks and at the beginning of each month she provides the parents with the monthly menu. This is so helpful in not only seeing what the plan for each day is but it allows the parent to then plan further meals to keep a good variety.
During the day Rene has always been available to be reached over the phone and she kept me informed about my daughter’s day with texts and pictures which is a reassuring and enjoyable aspect of each day. It also means that questions regarding my daughters day were never left a long time and you feel involved with the day whilst not being around.
All in all I am thoroughly happy with the level of care my daughter received and I would absolutely recommend Rene as a great and reliable childminder.
Rene was fantastic and combined wonderful level of care in supportive environment. Our little daughter has been going to her since sge was 6months and thrived under care while learning to socialise with other babies. We can recommend her highly enough.
