Below are the latest reviews for Honez childminding. 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 having an awful experience at a local nursery, I stumbled across Honez Childcare on Childcare.co.uk and it honestly was just meant to be.

I visited Teresa and Honey and they are honestly the loveliest and most down to earth people. But, more than anything, I felt that I could trust them to care for our daughter and I knew that she would be in safe hands. I rushed home to tell my husband that I'd found Mary Poppins!

Our daughter has developed ten fold since starting with Teresa and Honey and she comes home everyday so full of happiness and smiles. We get daily photos and are so re-assured as we know that our daughter is in very safe hands and having the most amazing time with all of her little friends. The setting is safe with, it would seem, a never ending amount of different toys (I'm actually starting to think that they might actually be Mary Poppins...)!

As first time, full time working, parents, I can't really put into words the relief of knowing that your child is safe and loved whilst you work to give them the best life possible. Our childcare journey didn't start particularly well but Honez has restored our faith in childcare and what we should have experienced in the first place.

We feel very lucky to have found Honez but the heart of this setting is the family that run it and, as modest as they may be, you can tell that they absolutely adore what they do.

We can't wait to continue seeing our daughter thrive and to see how she will grow and develop. Her speech has come on so much already and in the space of only 6 weeks, our 15 month old now says a variety of words that she definitely didn't say 6 weeks ago!

Thank you so much to you and your lovely family for doing what you do. Any child at your setting is incredibly lucky and will grow to be a wonderful adult in years to come.

Charlotte and Mark wow what can I say?
When I first read this review I couldn't stop the tears running down my face. Thank you so very much.
When I first met you both I just had a gut feeling that this was really going to work out. You are amazing parents and are doing such a brilliant job.
Your beautiful child is a credit to you both. She is so clever and funny! We are thrilled to be able to help look her and are enjoying every minute of watching her develop.
Keep up your wonderful parenting and hopefully we can work together for some time to come.
Teresa X

I met Teresa via Childcare.co.uk after my previous childminder of 5 years was taken ill. I was nervous about looking for a new childminder for my daughter but Teresa was very friendly, approachable and easy to talk to.

My daughter settled in straight away with her, and she always looks forward to going to her. During our first visit I was really impressed with the range of toys, games and craft activities available. There is always lots of fun things to do, and whenever I arrive to collect my daughter, the children are happy, well behaved and engaged in an activity. My daughter often comes home with something she has proudly made! Her garden is secure and has lots of different apparatus suitable for a wide range of children.

Teresa also offers healthy meals which my daughter says are yummy! I am very happy with the care my daughter receives and would definitely recommend her.

Ah Amanda that is such a lovely review thankyou. Its so nice to have such a lovely group of parents. Your child's last Childminder was obviously amazing and it was a big thing for your child to trust someone else after being with her for so long. I look forward to seeing your little girl after school as she comes rushing out beaming!! She is a delightful child so kind and caring. I find that the children that I look after are gelling together and hopefully will all stay good friends in the future, What a wonderful job I have.
Thankyou Amanda x

My little boy has been with Teresa now for 2 months and he absolutely loves going! He loves Teresa and the girls so much and has such a big grin on his face when we drop him off every time, which is so reassuring to both his dad and myself. Teresa’s set up is just fantastic and there’s always something for him to play with. He’s only 7 months old, so to be able to have developed that much of a bond already shows how special it is there. I get daily photos and updates to show what he’s up to and the fun he’s having. We’ve seen a massive difference in all his abilities and every day he’s learning new skills there! Having been born in lockdown and never meeting another person apart from his dad and myself before going to Teresa, it shows just how homely he finds it there (both the environment and everyone there) that he hasn’t had an issue settling in!

Wow what can I say? Thankyou so much Emily for this lovely review. Its really hard not to get attached to a baby that is as lovely as yours. He is so happy and loving and I am privileged to be allowed to be able to look after your child and help with and be part of his development. It is such a pleasure. Thankyou again Emily x

My daughter felt right at home from the very first day and loves going to Teresa. I really love her service and really pleased with the setup she has. You'll definitely get your moneys worth with Teresa. Teresa's communication is just amazing which is a major thing for me.

Thank you Victoria for your lovely review. You have such a beautiful and intelligent daughter. Myself and my assistants are thrilled to be part of your child's life. Thank you for choosing us!!

We found Teresa during lockdown when we were unable to visit the setting, but we had a long telephone consultation and knew instantly we wanted her to look after our daughter.

Well, the description of the setting and seeing it online cannot prepare you for how amazing it is in real life. There is everything conceivable there for children of all ages. Two age appropriate gardens filled with toys and an amazing indoor space filled with more toys, learning opportunities and sensory equipment.

The care that our daughter has received is outstanding. After going to Teresa for only one week, she started to say her first words. She is a bilingual child and so we thought she would be a late talker, but she absolutely isn’t. Teresa has even gone out of her way to help develop not only our daughters English words, but her Swedish ones too and will consistently greet us using the Swedish words.

On the whole, I am SO impressed with the level of thought, care, structure, activities and learning that our daughter is offered each day. I am also very happy to receive the photos and videos of her having fun - I’m a worrier and these help to relieve my worries. I would wholeheartedly recommend Teresa and her lovely daughters to anyone looking for childcare in the area.
