"Charlie has been coming since before he was born - I remember attending Thomas's graduation from Honeybear 10 days over my due date when a persistent Charlie wouldn't appear.

I've always felt so comfortable knowing my children would be cared for, the staff are approachable, knowledgable and build up a genuine rapport with the children and the parents. The nursery is run in a flexible realistic way that meets the needs of the children and the parents.

Unlike some of my colleagues do about their children, I dont worry about his wellbeing - I know he's OK, enjoying learning, making friends and eating well. We're always kept informed about whats happened that day and the parents evenings are well structured giving us time to look through the learning journey and talk through progress thats being made. Many thanks reallly!"

"Honeybears is a small nursery with a 'family' feel to it. In our view it prioritises individual care for the children, a warm environment and rich experiences for the child. We have been continually impressed by the genuinely down-to-earth, straightforward and caring attitudes of the staff towards all children. The nursery is well organised and has excellent lines of communication with parents. We are delighted that our children have had such a start to their pre-school experience."

Nicola – Hale

"I have never had a days worry leaving my son in your care, he really enjoys going and I really get the feeling the staff love having him there. I have recommended you to friends and any future children I may go onto have I would really like them to attend."

"We absolutely love this nursery. More importantly the kids love it too. They were upset at going there at first but now they run in. The boys have made great strides in their language and social skills. Our one little boy has special needs and the staff have worked so hard to help feel welcome and now he loves coming. The work they have done with his therapists has been wonderful and they are highly regarded."

"We chose this nursery for our own daughter after I visited it for professional reasons and was very impressed by the friendliness of the staff and range of facilities and healthy diet. The fact hat the children are sometimes able to mix with all ages in the great outside area is a bonus. Our child has really calmed down and learned to show her kind and thoughtful side towards other children through the patient help of staff. She clearly adores her carers and they give her the love and comfort that she needs. A couple of times we had to contact the nursery or directly approach staff about things that we were concerned about and we were treated with total respect and our concerns dealt with. I couldn't praise the nursery enough."

Tracey – Gatley

"I am very happy that my daughter is so happy and settled at Honeybear. The staff provide a caring, fun and constructive place to develop and learn. The progress I see of my child gives us both confidence and she loves the staff and her little friends there."
