About Me

My name is Honey Kaur and I have been a registered Ofsted childminder for 9 years recently graded OUTSTANDING. I live in a 3 bedroom house with a spacious garden.

Childminding has become a huge part of my life and has moulded me into the person I am today.
Childminding is far from just a job to me, there is no greater joy than caring for children who represent all that is best in us. I provide all children in my care with a clean, safe, loving, home-like environment where everyone feels valued. I thrive on providing a quality based setting where standards are high, independence can be developed and where there is a wealth of learning opportunities, both structured and flexible, to help children to achieve their goals and promote their self-esteem. I follow the guidance of the Early Years Foundation Stage and make regular written observations of the children in my care in order to plan activities to support their individual development and needs.

I have a warm and welcoming home, filled with toys and designed around children's needs. I am committed to working in partnership with parents and acknowledge that parents are the experts on their own children. I treat children with care, empathy and respect and as individuals with different needs. I provide children with fun and stimulating learning opportunities that reflect their age and stage of development. I providing a nutritious diet for children and teach children about healthy food choices. I take a professional approach: ongoing training, respecting confidentiality, keeping organised records in accordance with current guidelines, having clear policies and procedures and communicating these to parents. I provide a reliable service that parents can depend on and have confidence in.

I am insured by and am a member of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years)

My Experience

Being a mum of 2 has given me experiences no training could ever teach! I have looked after a number of children over the years all coming with their own individual needs and personalities.

Honey has been absolutely wonderful, we can't recommend her enough.

Our daughter joined Honey as she turned a year old and it's been so amazing to see the bond they built together. Honey is an incredibly knowledgeable, supportive, patient, caring, and real genuine person.

As first-time parents, we were anxious in picking a childcare setting but within minutes of meeting Honey we were reassured and she continued to exceed our expectations. Honey provided guidance, support, and advice throughout, she was always contactable and gave us feedback on our daughter which was incredibly important to us. Our daughter's favourite word became 'Honey' :)

Honey provided freshly made food which our daughter loved every day! Trips to local parks near and far - we always felt safe and reassured in how they were organised. Honey celebrated cultural events in different languages all in a fun and engaging way. In summary, a great place to send your child.

We have no hesitation at all to highly recommend Honey!!

There aren't enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe how fabulous Honey's Childcare setting is! My daughter started going to Honey full time age 11 months (she is now nearly 2). We visited the setting, having seen a number of childminders and were blown away by her experience, professionalism, insight and the warm, safe and loving environment she had created for the children in her care. We knew then and there Honey was the childminder for us!

Our daughter has loved going to Honey's house ever since and often asks if she can go to 'Honey's House' on non childcare days. We have seen her development go from strength to strength under Honey's care. Honey takes the early years education of all children very seriously and she will always focus trips and visits (pre Covid-19) and activities to ensure children are able to learn in a fun, creative environment. Honey gives us photo updates after most sessions and written reports on our daughters development throughout the year. Honey has created a beautiful environment for the children. Kindness and friendship are at the heart of her practise which you can see by the way the other children and Honey's own family have my daughter with enthusiasm love and kindness.

Honey ensures nutrition and exercise are a key part of the children's development and cleverly uses food and fitness in really creative ways to ensure the children are active. She also takes great care to ensure the cultural backgrounds of the children are reflected in her resources and celebrates a range of cultural festivals including; Chinese New Year, Black History Month, Diwali, Christmas and many more. Honey has always been flexible and will bend over backwards to accommodate your childs needs. For example, during lockdown we taught our daughter some sign language, we shared this with Honey which she then incorporated into Etta's learning.

Safeguarding and health safety are of paramount importance at Honey's. She has created a Covid secure setting for the children whilst maintaining the warm home from home environment we fell in love with on our first visit. Which is why we felt more than confident sending our daughter back to Honey following lockdown.

Honey is an amazing childminder who is always striving to enrich her practise even more with additional training, new resources and being part of a childminder network. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

People often say 'you have the same amount of hours in the day as Beyoncé but' I now say 'you have the same number of hours activities in the day as Honey!' She's an actual superwomen!

My son was with Honey from 10 months old until he was 5. We both came to think of Honey’s family like his second family and that speaks to how warm the care she provides is. I know that I could talk to Honey about any concern I had with my son and that she would support him. Honey was committed to giving the children new experiences and I never felt that my son was bored or not stimulated enough. I have always had full trust and confidence in Honey and in her decisions. As a parent I feel that is the most important thing when someone is minding your child.

Honey cared for our son last year. Honey is professional, caring and flexible. It was a real piece of mind knowing my son was in a safe environment. Honey offers opportunities of play and toys that my son liked, and she took an interest in my son's likes and dislikes and planned activities accordingly. Honey is also very knowledgeable in early years and catered to my son's needs.
I strongly recommend Honey if you are looking for a local childminder, she is absolutely fantastic at what she does and truly grateful to her for all her help!
