About Me

I live with my husband in a green and leafy area of Meanwood ,ideally placed for school drop offs or pick ups from either St Urbans or Shire Oak in Headingley both within 15 mins walk.
I have lived here with my family who have now grown up for almost 20 years.
I am grandmother to a gorgeous toddler girl.
My setting is a semi detached Chalet style home with two reception rooms, downstairs wc and a cloakroom.
Outside we have gardens to front and rear. The rear garden is totally enclosed and is not overlooked.
I try to promote healthy fun activities with healthy snacks and trips out, As a member of Forest childcare Association I make use of our excellent parks in this area to give children a fun and stimulating experience on their trips to and from school.
All our learning and play activities follow the Early Years Foundation stage national standards
A number of children that were in my care in their infancy and now approaching adulthood still pop in to see me and I take this as a great compliment and endorsement of my care.
During my near 20 years providing childcare in Meanwood I have provided childcare for teaching staff at both Meanwood Cof E and St Urbans.
If you feel your children would thrive in a calm caring setting without large numbers of children my setting can offer what you are looking for.
I can provide excellent references and contact details for parents of children previously in my care

Tracy has been looking after my little girl four days per week since she was six months old. I didn't want to go back to work so early, and felt terrible leaving my baby with a stranger. But Tracy has made it as easy as it could be. She has loved my daughter as if she's her own, lavishing her with cuddles and praise and attention. No two days are the same, as Tracy always gets out and about, catching buses, visiting different play parks, play groups and museums. She often meets up with other childminders so my daughter has a wide circle of friends. She has also helped out with my older son during school holidays and for school pick ups. She is a good cook, good fun, and my daughter adores her and feels as safe and secure as with her 'real' grandma. Tracy's home is warm and clean with a dedicated play room stuffed with toys and books.

Three years on, my daughter has started preschool a few days per week, so Tracy is looking for more work. Tracy has been unstintingly loyal, reliable and flexible, and i couldn't have asked for more. I'm really glad i placed my daughter in her care, and didn't opt for a nursery setting where she would have been shuffled between different carers and had to stare at the same four walls every day. With Tracy my daughter's life is much more similar to if she was at home with me or her grandma. I can't recommend Tracy highly enough!
