Hi I'm Tracy,I'm a ofsted registered Childminder.I live in mill hill .We are called "Jigsaw Day Care". After over 30 years of being a nanny, supervisor in nursery's and playgroups and at present a Deputy Manager and early years foundation stage manager at a After school play centre where we have 100 children a time ranging from 4 to 10 years.
My partner is joining me in our new adventure as we both run a special needs group at weekends for over 20 years as my oldest son of 28 is Autistic and other needs and lives in Supportive living and proud of how much he has achieved .My Partner is DBS and has First Aid and child care qualified and behavioural management.
I have all childcare qualifications , Safeguarding , Health and Safety and insurances. I am qualified in the EYFS so will observe your child for their next steps of development . I am also Senco trained .
I love working with children and now changing to childminding as I want to monitor children development on their learning journey. I'm looking forward to seeing how your little treasures grow and develop and excited to work and play with them. Every Child is special and i aim to bring out the very best in them.
My youngest Son is nearly 14 and we have a lovely friendly cat called Maisy who is calm and never scratches.
I have changed over to childminding as my Daughter has gone back to work as a teacher and so i have my Granddaughter and love having others to love , guide and play together.
My whole downstairs is dedicated to the children. My play room is bright and airy with lots of fun and educational toys,with lots of resources , books, nursery rhymes, dressing up,musical instruments. Board games for older children .
I have my conservatory for lots of Arts and Crafts and play-dough .We will be celebrating different festivals.
I have a large Garden which is safe and secure and has fake grass so all soft and nice.I have sea saws , bikes, cars, easels, tunnels, a playhouse with a kitchen and tool centre inside .Lots of things for the children to explore and use there fine gross motor skills.
I will provide healthy meals and snacks and fresh fruit or you can bring your own pack lunch if you prefer.
We will be going out to playgroups, parks, library. We will be going farms, zoos, etc. For the bigger day trips out there will be a little extra charge but will always discuss with you. Risk Assessments will always be done indoors and for outings.
My Policy has always been i treat all children i look after the way wanted my Children to be cared for when they were young . I like to work in partnerships with parents as children are my no 1 priority. I understand exactly how hard it is to trust a Childcare Provider with your precious children
I Strongly believe in building relationship with parents and carers. I recognise the importance of parental involvement and always listen to you like i do every day in my work at present.
All information is kept locked in the file cabinet and photos is on a work phone.
I can provide references from parents where i work at present.
Due to the covid 19 we are being asked to limit the looking round our settings and having to send you copies of my paperwork etc. I do have a web site where a lot of pictures and my polices are already on there for you to see you are still welcome to come and meet us in the garden .
