About Me

I live with my partner of 15 years and my 15 year old daughter and my dog, in an extended 3 bed semi. My whole house is registered for childminding and i have cots upstairs to ensure children have quiet time for sleeps (when required). I have a purpose built 'playshack' which provides an extra room.
I live close to a bus route, and to the train station and to lots of parks. I use the local Children's Centre regularly and meet up with other Childminders and their children often. I offer a wide range of activities from quiet to very loud (and of course some in between), these include books, musical instruments, messy play, arts and crafts and much, much more.
References are available.

My Experience

I have 13 years childminding experience, as well as 15 years of looking after my daughter. I have looked after many different children some who have grown up and no longer need care still visit and send Christmas cards. I have worked with children with of varying ages and abilities and am a member of the Community Network which has a Children Come First status.

My Qualifications

I am commited to Professional Development and i attend training regularly, i have NVQ level 3 in Child Care Learning and Development, a level 3 (A grade pass) Diploma in Home Based Childcare and much more including First Aid & Safeguarding Level 1 & 2.

Below are the latest reviews for Tra. 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.

Tracey has been child minder to both of my girls (now 7 and 3) from them being around 9 or 10 months old. Throughout their development stages, weaning, walking, potty training, speech development and socialisation she has been a driving force and supportive influence.

Tracey provides an extremely reliable, exceptional level of child care which I can highly recommend. She is very easy to talk to and discusses your child's progress regularly. Weekly meal plans are available to parents and everything is homemade and healthy, in fact, I'm often tempted by the smell of dinner cooking!

As well as being professional and working beyond expected standards, Tracey becomes a vital part of your child's life and day to day activities. They have a busy social calendar, with groups most days.

All in all, I could not recommend Tracey enough as a child care provider. I am only sad that my daughter will be leaving as we are relocating to another area soon.

This lady is a very experienced and effective child minder who would put any working mum or dad's mind at ease! x

This was the first time i had ever used a childminder after my first child went to nursery instead, but i would highly recommend Tracey. My son is always happy, well cared for and is in a lovely safe environment. He does so much when with Tracey.

He gets taken to many play groups, and other activities that are going on as well as rhyme time at the library.

My son has speech problems, which Tracey got a professional in and has worked with them and my son, and at present is assisting me with potty training.

He always gets healthy home made meals and we are always kept up to date about his well being and personal development.

We are really sad that our son is leaving in September to go to nursery. I feel that he has come on a lot more in his social skills and development than he would have done in a nursery as Tracey takes the time and has the patience to interact with each child she looks after.

Highly recommended
