Thank you for taking the time to look over my profile.
I am a qualified OFSTED registered childminder with fifteen enjoyable years of experience.
After completing all the compulsory training for childminding, I extended my knowledge and completed my Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce.
I provide a home from home environment for the children in my care.
My setting provides nurturing, stimulating and fun learning.
I follow the EYFS guidelines and complete regular observations.
These are stored in your child’s profile book, which they will receive when they leave my setting.
I am kind, caring, honest and love nothing more than children having fun and hearing lots of laughter.
I believe in making the best possible memories for each child and capture lots of their daily activities through photographs. These photos are also added to their individual profile books.
Before becoming a childminder I worked in a local secondary school for 11 years, as a behaviour support assistant. This included me running a support unit which I provided a calm one to one teaching environment for individuals that needed extra support.
I decided to become a child minder to work with younger children again, as I had previously done at the start of my career.
- It's a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together-
I have always worked with children from the age of 17, including full time Nursery Nurse, Nanny, behaviour support assistant and I also worked in the Royal Free hospital, helping new mothers look after their newborn babies. This including helping to bath, feed and change them.
I have been a registered childminder since 2006 and I absolutely love my job!
I have Level 3 NVQ Diploma and all current up to date training/courses for childcare, such as First aid, safe guarding children etc.
Current childcare availability is Monday-Friday

I honestly feel so incredibly lucky to have found Tracey to look after my son whilst I am at work. My son is 18 months old and very nervous around new people and new places, and I was very worried about finding childcare that would be the right fit for him. Tracey is a wonderful childminder; she is sensitive and caring and my son is very comfortable with her, chatting away to her and calling her name after just a couple of visits. Her house is immaculate, and there is a huge range of toys and activities for the children to play with. Tracey has a huge garden which is filled with even more toys, cars, water table and more! Tracey keeps me updated throughout the day with lots of photos so I never feel too far away from my son. My son is always smiling away and occupied with different toys and activities, so I can clearly see for myself that he is having a lovely time and learning lots at the same time! Tracey varies the toys every time he visits so he is never bored. It’s also great for him to have some interaction with a couple of other children without being overwhelmed by a large group. In summary I am absolutely delighted to have found Tracey and would highly recommend her to all my family and friends.
Tracey has been our childminder since the beginning of September 2021.
We came to her with our daughter who is nearly one. She has cystic fibrosis and is fed through a feeding tube. We were hoping to find a childminder who would be ok with the additional medical needs, and Tracey has been amazing.
She has taken on Emily with open arms and has been very accepting of her needs. She has been willing to put in extra time to learn how to feed her and when there have been issues with the feeding tube she has dealt with them calmly and professionally.
Emily has always been happy to be dropped of with Tracey and has a lovely time!
The activities that are offered are varied, stimulating and educational. I feel confident that she gets the opportunity to learn and play in a safe environment.
I would definitely recommend Tracey to anyone looking for childcare.
We have found Tracey when looking for emergency childcare due to regular childminder’s sickness period, and I must honestly say this has been the happies coincidence in our lives.
At the end of our initial visit, my then two year old son was already all over Tracey, showering her with hugs and kisses. I think this pretty much sums it up how approachable she is.
Her firmly set ground rules work very well for both parents and children.
It is evident form photographic evidence sent to parents throughout the day that children are always engaged in interesting activities or stimulating games. My son is a big fun of outdoors, and Tracey’s huge garden allows for him to keep busy and get plenty of fresh air.
Tracey has always respected our cultural needs, which is greatly appreciated. She is open to feedback, suggestions and requests.
My son has developed numeracy, vocabulary and social skills while at her setting, and I have never seen him upset on pick up. Quite the contrary, on several occasion he did not want to leave with me to go home. Her setting is wonderful, spacious and full of toys suitable for all ages, which are in immaculate condition.
We are really impressed with Tracey and her friendly yet professional approach to child-minding.
Our son loves her so much he gets upset when he does not visit her during weekends.
We are a family who moved from Tokyo to London, having three years old boy who was actually kicked out from several nurseries because of his issue in language development. While we struggle to find education place for our boy to our surprise Tracey kindly offered help to him without making any negative comment which we always suffered at the nurseries which we think cannot be done without having depth of love and belief against children. We were surprised to see her strong commitment, vast experience and educational knowledge which we can clearly see through her daily feedbacks. Tracey also provides various kind of playing activities/toys/facilities at home and outside home which definitely supported stimulating our boy's development. We see our boy smiles more, eats and sleeps more, communicates much more than before. Tracey is our boy's second home and we definitely recommend Tracey to everyone.
Reggie is now 20months old and has been with Tracey for 2months. We decided to look for childcare when Reggie was about 14 months. It took us a while because the places and people did not seem like the right fit for us all. We met Tracey through chance. Reggie’s dad was working round her house and when he came home one day, he said I have met the perfect person to look after Reg. He told me about Tracey and said when I meet her, I will know what he means. We arranged to meet Tracey the following weekend and Reggie bonded with her immediately. Reggie is not an overly emotional little boy, and he doesn’t offer his cuddles or kisses out easily but within 5 minutes he was cuddling Tracey and following her around.
We arranged the first week to take place with only a couple hours to see how he gets on. Tracey was then and still is always so reassuring that Reggie will be OK and that she will contact if there is ever anything wrong. Reggie absolutely loves going to Tracey’s, he jumps out the car and goes over to the house confidently. He walks in without any hesitation and is settled straight away. I leave feel comfortable and confident that Reggie is safe and happy. Throughout the day I get photos and videos of all the fun activities and adventures Reggie is having. When I come to pick Reggie up, he is pleased to see me, gives me a cuddle, and then usually tells me bye as he tries to walk back into Tracey’s.
Tracey has a built-in playroom in her house filled with an assortment of toys. There are a different selection of toys everyday Reggie goes there so he could never get bored. Tracey has also kitted out her large garden with sand pit, water tables, trampoline, and many cars. Tracey has also taken Reggie out and about for example, last month they all went to the park which is at the end of her road. They also do indoor activities like nursey rhymes, reading books, painting, colouring and many more. I have so many amazing videos and pictures.
I have another child who is a little girl and initially I did not think that she would start childcare until at least a year. Since meeting Tracey, we feel confident that she will be in amazing hands and be able to start much earlier than this.
