About Me

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-

My Experience

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!

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Tracey. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

My son has been with Tracey since he was 14 months old and is now nearly 18 months. Tracey is a truly excellent childminder. I did extensive research to find the right person to look after my son. I reviewed 100s of profiles and interviewed15 individuals. Tracey was the best by far.
Tracey provides a warm and happy environment. It is very clear that she has a natural and loving relationship with the children she cares for. It feels like we are leaving him with a family member. My son always meets me at the end of the day, happy, clean and healthy.
Tracey provides an immaculate setting. Her home is always impeccably clean and tidy. She has the most impressive range of toys, books, activities and puzzles. She also has a beautiful outdoor setting, with lots of outdoor toys and activities, including a slide set, water/sand tables and a children’s play house. My son really enjoys being outside in the fresh air and so I really value that he can spend a portion of his day outside in this safe environment.
Tracey is very attentive and observant. She accurately notices which toys and activities my son enjoys and is good at and lets me know. She keeps us updated throughout the day with pictures and updates on how he is doing, which brings us huge amounts of comfort during the working day.
When my son started with Tracey he was quite introverted and shy. Thanks to Tracey’s help he is growing into a healthy and outgoing toddler.
I have every confidence that my son is being well looked after, nurtured and loved by Tracey whilst I am at work. I have no hesitation in recommending her. She really is wonderful.

Tracey is the best childminder we could recommend. As new parents looking for a childcare solution in London, we have been so fortunate to find Tracey. Her house is the dream home for babies and young children, everything is kept super clean and she obviously enjoys playing with the children she looks after with so much enthusiasm and patiencd. She has so much experience that not any situation she would need to encounter could be a cause of worry for us. Tracey keeps parents informed during the day, is very responsive and always manages to capture the best moment. We can see how happy our baby is and how much stimulation there is around with the toys and activities offered.

Tracey is an amazing childminder. Since I started sending my son to her, she’s welcomed him into her home like family. He settled in quickly and feels so comfortable with her and her family. He has developed so much in her care, thanks to all the different activities that Tracey facilitates daily — painting, music, farm animals, make believe! Tracey puts so much effort in making sure our baby feels stimulated and cared for. He comes home so happy, which allows me peace of mind knowing he is in good hands throughout the day. She is honest, trustworthy and so caring.

We are so lucky to have found her!

Tracey has been looking after my son, Imran, from when he was 14 months old and I couldn’t recommend her enough. I found the whole prospect of finding childcare for Imran the most painful, nerve-racking, and upsetting thing I have ever done. I was so confused whether to choose a childminder or a nursery and choosing Tracey as Imran’s childminder is one of the best decisions I have made.

I have to say from the moment I met Tracey I was put completely at ease as she is incredibly friendly and very open. Tracey’s home is impeccably clean and there is a large playroom stacked full of toys for all age groups as well as huge amounts of toys in the garden. She also always makes time for any worries or concerns, and her love and care for the children is lovely!

Imran has always had an extreme fear of strangers and anyone outside his immediate family since all our family members are abroad and I was particularly anxious about him settling in. However, from day one, Tracey was warm, caring, interactive, and friendly with Imran and this has no doubt helped him settle and gain confidence in himself.

All in all, I can honestly say that I made the absolute best decision in placing Imran in Tracey’s care. Imran is so happy there, loves the environment, loves the other children, loves Tracey to bits and will definitely be with her for a long time!

Tracey looked after our son from September to November, 3-4 days a week.

Joe absolutely loved being with Tracey, he was happy to be left by me and play with the other children. Regular updates and photos showed me how much fun he was having and gave me - as his mother - the assurance that he was in safe hands.

We found Tracey to be a lovely, warm, caring professional, who really took the time to get to know both Joe and his family, and we would happily have Joe back in her care, work permitting (and space permitting!)

We heartily recommend her!
