About Me

Welcome to Hightown Childcare!

We are a small family run home-based setting. We pride ourselves in delivering a home from home approach to childcare, working alongside parents to give children the very best start in life.

Our setting is based in the beautiful town of Ringwood. When we're not out and about in the community, we are exploring toys in the playroom or getting creative in our chill out space.

At Hightown Childcare, I (Tracy) work alongside my two daughters, Sophie and Grace.

I am a loving mother to my three children and Nanny to my wonderful grandchildren. I have been working in childcare for over eighteen years, during this time I have been a network childminder, manager of a nursery and lead SENCO at a pre-school. I love every part of childcare and can honestly say I have the best job in the world!

My daughter Sophie is now working alongside me at Hightown Childcare. She is currently going through the registration process, to become a registered childminder in her own right. Previously Sophie has worked as a support worker for children with additional needs, in the EYFS department within a school for children with SEN and more recently as a teaching assistant.

My youngest daughter Grace is a caring mother to her beautiful son. Grace is in the process of completing her level 3 in Early Years. She has chosen to pursue a career in childcare as she has loved bringing her son up and wants to give other parents the opportunity to go to work knowing that their child is being left in a safe and loving environment.

We found Tracy by chance after some disappointing experiences , and wow! It really goes to show that every cloud DOES have a silver lining.
Tracy and the girls are superb and I haven't had a moments worry from the day we introduced our 5 year old to them. It feels like she's part of the family and that she really cares for our daughter.
Gentle, calm and very empathic, I almost want to keep her a secret! Don't think twice, go and have a chat. You won't be disappointed.

After my son went to Tracy’s I quickly realised that I wished I used her services sooner. The environment has a lovely, warm, homely feel and I know that my son is safe and being nurtured in a lovely family. It’s the only care provider he’s ever asked to go too! Says it all ♥️

Tracy is a wonderful childminder. I had never left my son with a childminder before but I need not have worried as my son was really happy in her care. Tracy is totally professional and I felt very confident leaving my son in her care. Her approach is very calm, gentle and nurturing and she has a lovely setting.
Tracy is so genuinely caring and has the expertise with children to match.

I can't thank Tracy enough for all that her and the team have done to support James.
As a first time mum I was so worried about leaving my little boy whilst I went back to work but Tracy made this process so much easier. She ensured that she sent me regular updates to let me know how James was doing and has always let me know if he has settled in ok.

James is eager to get to Tracy in the mornings and always has so much fun!

Tracy is a kind, caring and passionate childminder. It has truly been amazing having Tracy in our lives.
