About Me

****Spaces available for all age children from September****

Hello my name is Tracy, I have been registered as a Childminder for 6 years now and love it. I live at home with my 15 yr old son.

I live in a 3 bedroom house and have a reasonable size living room with lots of toys that the children can reach themselves, I also rotate the toys for the children to give them variation. I have a good sized enclosed garden with balls, pools bats etc. I have a cat called Scooby. (Cat is all up to date with Jabs and I flea him monthly).

I have worked in pre-schools, day nurseries and been another childminder assistant, so have worked with all age ranges.

I hold a full clean driving licence and a first aid certificate. I have all insurances in place as well as all policies.

Each day is different as I plan to take them to playgroups, do lots of activities, I do trips out to soft play, zoo, parks etc. The activities will include doing glueing and sticking, cooking, painting, messy play, garden play and lots more fun things.

I follow the early years foundation stage to meet the childrens learning and development. I hold a full CRB check.

I am available to do pre-schools pickups and drops off.

I do Pickup and drop off from Moorlands Primary School.

I work alongside another Childminder Vicki Sellar, you can view her profile on here. She spends everyday with me and knows all the children well, she is able to back me up should anything ever happen or if I am unable to work. (if she has space to do so). Vicki would be able to be here when meeting for the first time.

Tracy is the best!!!!

Tracy was the first childminder I met before going back to work after my first child, brooke was 9 months when she started tracys then when I had my second she also started with Tracy at 6 months of age.

My children love tracys they have learnt and grown so much into lovely little lady's,
Tracy is kind, caring, understanding, very flexible and loves each and everyone of her children and does everything possible to make sure they are happy and safe at all times!!!

Sadly my eldest brooke has said goodbye to tracys childcare (which was a very sad moment as she now attends pre school)

Tracy still has my youngest daughter and now my newborn son on a as and when basis so will still have lots of contact. She is an amazing woman and I wouldn't know anyone better to leave my children with and not haft to worrie

Thanks Tracy your one in a million

Thank you so much for this lovely Review......I have loved having your children. Brooke for nearly 3yrs and Lexi for nearly a year now. I am truly going to miss having Brooke but know I will still see her and find out how she is getting on at Pre-School.

So happy that you have loved the care I provide here at Tracy's Childcare.

Thanks so much again for all your support.


I've got to say a BIG THANK YOU to Tracy for doing such a brilliant job with Sammy. He utterly adores her and looks forward to his visits.

We've been taking him to Tracy's since the end of August 2011 and I've got to say it's one of the best things we've ever done. Tracy clearly loves looking after the babies/children and seems to bond really well with them.

Sammy is as at home with Tracy as he is with us and although he's pleased to see us when we pick him up he'll just greet us and then trundle back to the toys to carry on playing and shows no intention of leaving!

We are so glad we picked you, you are the best.

Awwww thank you so much for this lovely review. Sammy is such a delight to look after and I am so pleased Sammy has settled well with me. He always has a smile and I just love his cheeky face, he always makes me laugh at the faces he pulls.

I am so pleased you are happy with the care I provide for Sammy.

Tracy :))

Tracy has been looking after my daughter for 3 months now and I have never looked back she is fantastic!!!. When Brooke started she made me feel at ease as i was so sad to let my little girl go. but 3 months down the line i wouldn't trust anyone more than Tracy, she is kind,caring,loving,very understanding and has always communicated with me if there was any problems or issues with my child.

Brooke loves going to tracy's she is always so happy when she gets picked up in the morning and when I go to collect her !!!!!!!

Tracy is very flexible with her times and hours and is always happy to help me out when I have appointments or just need a few extra hours.

i just want to say a BIG thank you to Tracy and im glad i chose for my daughter to come to you !!!!! x

Brooke is such a delight to look after, always has a smile for me first thing in a morning. I see both parents and they have made me feel so at ease in my job. I am so glad you are happy with my care for your daughter, couldn't have asked for a more pleasant little girl.

Thankyou for the lovely review, it really means alot to me :)
