Nanny in Benfleet
Babysitter in Benfleet
Female Member since Jan 2014 Last Updated Oct 2021 Last Login 19 May 2022
Hi my name is Tracy, I am a Fully Qualified Nanny with over 30 years experience in childcare. I live in Benfleet with my husband and two children aged 19 and 17 years old. We love spending time together as a family going to the gym, restaurants and on holidays. I’m a very warm, caring and reliable person and love working with children. I’m very active and enjoy spending time outdoors.
Prior to having my two children I worked as a nursery nurse in a lovely nursery for 10 years overseeing the development and care of the children within the nursery.
I enjoy planning fun days out and like taking the children out to local toddler groups, parks, farms, library’s, woods, music classes, soft play areas, sea life centre and the beach. If we are not out and about exploring I like to spend the time indoors organising fun and educational activities such as messy play, baking and arts & crafts!
• I have 30 years experience in childcare ranging from working in Nurseries to working as a Nanny.
• Fully Qualified Nursery Nurse for over 10 years.
• Experience working with Twins, Triplets and Newborns.
Maintaining the children’s routine as well as communicating with the parents are both important for me. I stay in touch regularly throughout the day by sending pictures or even short videos to the parents of what fun activities we have done or places we have visited during our day together. I am very familiar with the EYFS and progress children to reach their milestones.
I am more than happy to help with some light nursery duties such as children’s laundry, meal prep, keeping play areas clean and tidy whilst the children nap or are at school/nursery.

‘We love nanny Tracy! Tracy started looking after my son when he was 8 months old, he had so much fun with her they went to lots of classes and was always kept entertained and happy. He is very lively but she managed to keep an eye on him at all times which is quite a challenge. I felt so comfortable leaving to go to work knowing he was in such safe hands. Highly recommend Tracy! Feel free to contact me for further information’.
- Miss P Jackson - 2020
‘I felt like our two boys aged 2 years and 9 months were in completely safe hands with Tracy. My 9 month old is still being fed in the night and Tracy managed to get him easily and calmly back to sleep using some milk in his cup. I was understandably anxious about leaving them for the first time with a non family member but Tracy made me feel completely at ease and confident that they were being looked after.’
- Miss A Mitchell- 2019
‘We love her, were the words from my 6 year old and 4 year old after their first day with Tracy. They’ve asked to have her back several times. For me this is the seal of approval.’
- Mrs S Short - 2019
‘Tracy worked as our Nanny, looking after our 3 children who were 3, 5 and 10. Tracy was brilliant with the kids, they were always out and about at the farm or parks, having lots of fun. The kids loved it when she looked after them, they would do drawing and cooking at home sometimes, play games, do puzzles and read books. Tracy cooked their dinners and always made nice healthy meals that they all enjoyed. We always found Tracy to be reliable, flexible and trustworthy. I loved having the peace of mind to go to work, knowing the kids were happy and in safe hands. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tracy for any childcare positions, she is extremely caring with children and a pleasure to know’.
- Mrs N Hutchings - 2015
‘Tracy was our nanny for just under two years, we have 4 young children each with only a year apart (6months, 20months, 3 & 4 years old!). Tracy was so good with them, she taught them lots, loved them and always wanted to be out the house finding local clubs and groups (which for me was exactly what we wanted). I was totally at eaze with her looking after our brood and would definitely recommend. Anyone would be lucky to have Tracy take care of their children’
- Mrs N Harmsworth - 2018
‘Tracy is a wonderful professional nanny. She looked after my two young children for a quite a few months and they absolutely loved her. She is incredibly patient and kind with them and has a true gift of engaging with them. She is reliable and trustworthy. I would most definitely recommend Tracy!’
