About Me

I'm vaccinated against covid 19!

I'm a caring, energetic and reliable nanny and as a mother of 2 wonderful children (age 15 & 10), I feel I have a great insight into what a parent would like from a nanny. I love filling my days with fun and educational activities such as farm visits, museums, stay & play sessions, swimming and arts & crafts. I encourage healthy eating and exercise and I love making scrap books filled with photos and all the other wonderful things your little one has made. I am very experienced with new borns and young siblings.
I am First Aid trained (baby & child) and DBS checked. I have exellent recent references on request.

My Experience

I have over 10 years nanny experience.

I worked throughout the pandemic for an amazing family who made me feel like part of the family. I started when their son had just turned 2. He was a very energetic boy who loved the outdoors. During a time where most indoor activities were closed (and both parents working from home), We spent our days climbing in the woods, feeding the ducks, visiting parks & riding his bike. On colder days he would come to my home for lunch and build dens, get creative and read stories until his heart was content. As activities reopened, We loved visiting all the London museums, libraries, farms and softs plays. When he turned 3 his mum had a baby girl. Although mum was on maternity leave, I would often have both children (from newborn) so parents could enjoy lunches/evenings out etc.
During my time with them our children became extremely close as schools were closed and our days would all be spent together. I was also able to introduce new food groups which came with getting involved in cooking/baking.
This position has only recently sadly come to an end as they are moving across London.

My previous position was with a wonderful family who i worked with for 18 months. Their beautiful daughter, now 2 1/2 loved stay & play sessions, library visits, farms & singing. My role was to give her breakfast, get her ready for the day, prepair a healthy lunch and provide fun and edacational activities for the day. Their daughter was so happy with me that when they moved across london, they continued to bring her to me for 6 months, until she was ready for nersery. It was amazing to watch her confidence grow, her speach develop and hit all her milestones.

Previously i worked with an american/Italian family and their wonderful little girl (then age 1 year). She was extremely shy but she soon become outgoing and very chatty.

Previous to this i was responsible for a lovely little boy from 9 months until the age of 4. I was responsible for him and his daily routine full time. His mother was a teacher who worked long hours and often worked late so her son would regularly spend meal times with my family. He had (mild) special needs so I organised our day's to suit his love of animals, swimming, baking and singing groups.

I was also responsible for (a then) 2 year old little girl 3 days a week. She loved nothing more than long walks, stay & play sessions and painting. She was a fussy eater but she soon began to have a love of baking with me which slowly encouraged her to try new foods. I have carried out nursery drop off's and pick up's for a 4 year old little girl for 6 months until she started school. Several years ago I spent time volunteering in a school for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities. I had the opportunity to work on a 1:1 basis with children who suffered with severe special needs, autism and cerable palsy. This was a challenging but wonderful experience. I have 2 wonderful children who are in full time school now. I have recently updated my first aid for baby & child certificate & a DBS check. And exellent references on request.

Tracey has been looking after my baby since mid April five days a week on a part-time basis. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. She has been and absolute Godsend! She is a very reliable, responsive, friendly, caring, experienced and hard working individual.
Tracey is a natural when it comes to babies and children and I've learned a lot from her (I'm a bit clueless as every other new mum). She put Joy in the swings for her first time and she loved it, takes her our everyday, takes her to activities, etc. She always has ideas of what to do with her to keep her entertained.
Joy absolutely adores her and really enjoys their time together. I'm sure she will miss Tracey once she starts going to nursery in July! At least they will see each other some evenings when my husband and I do date night.

Tracey has been a wonderful, kind nanny to our 2 year old son this year. She has been with us since September 2020 and looks after our son 2 days a week. During the lockdown, Tracey has been super flexible and has accomodated our son for extra days when we withdrew him from nursery. She has been very Covid cautious which has been reassuring to us. Because Tracey has had her own two children at home during the lockdown, our son has become very familiar with her kids and he has also become very attached to them. She researches different activities, parks and playgrounds, ensuring that no two days are the same for our son. On rainy days she builds forts with him, reads multiple stories, and bakes with him. This has not been an easy task during the middle of a pandemic where most things have been shut, especially over the winter months. She is very good at taking initiatives and she really loves being around children and that is why she is very good at her job.Tracey has a very gentle approach which has suited us perfectly, she is able to manage behaviour in a calm and fair way. She encourages healthy eating, and has succesfully introduced new foods to our son.

A nanny is an extension of your family and not only does she do an amazing job of looking after our son, we genuinely enjoy Tracey's company and she will often join us for tea at our breakfast table. It is very clear that Tracey loves children, and she has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to raising them. As a first time mum, I have found this very helpful.

I would most definitely recommend Tracey as a nanny.

I highly recommend Tracey as a carer. Tracey started by looking after my daughter nights at 5 weeks old and this led to a regular day for almost a year now. My little girl is now almost 1 and loves her days with Tracey. I can go out and enjoy my day / evening at ease knowing Tracey is home. At times I feel she is better with her than I am! :) Never any problems putting her down for her naps, feeding her etc.
Tracey takes my little one to play groups, walks, playgrounds, animal farms etc. and is pro active in suggesting activities and keeping busy at home with books, singing etc.

I can't thank you enough for your kind words. It's been an absolute pleaure taking care of Jude and getting to know your lovely family.

Last weekend was only the second time I leave my little girl who is 5 weeks old with a babysitter. Naturally my husband and I were very anxious but Tracey made us feel right at ease. She is a lovely person who had two wonderful kids of her own.
Tracey came a little bit earlier as she had seen there were roadblocks in our neighbourhood and didn’t want to risk being late.
We left instructions for Tracey on where to find everything and what to do in case the little one wakes up (she has a ‘strict’ routine). Tracey was so natural with our baby, there were no issues at all. Thank you again! I will definitely be in touch soon.

Thank you very much for the lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting your lovely family and hope to see you again

As a new mum I was very anxious going back to work and leaving my baby with a nanny. However after meeting Tracey I instinctively knew that I had made the right decision. Tracey was everything and more as a nanny to my daughter. She helped get Felix ready for the day including breakfast and ensured that Felix was attending different play groups throughout. Throughout the day Tracey would send us pictures of Felix's activity and give an update on what she has been eating etc which I really liked. Felix absolutely adored Tracey and we could see her confidence and skills develop under the care of Tracey. I honestly cannot recommend Tracey highly enough and would be very happy to provide a more thorough reference to parents looking for a nanny. We recently moved to south London and arranged for Felix to be taken to North London for the last 6 months with Tracey until she was ready for nursery and are still to this day in touch with Tracey.
