About Me


I live with my partner and 24 year old daughter and also have a son of 27 who lives independently. I have been an Ofsted Registered Childminder since November 1998.

Having spent quite some time renovating the house we bought in Shawbirch.
I have now started a whole new chapter in my life with the move from Essex to Shropshire in July 2020.

I am very lucky to find my self living across the road to St Peters Primary so will be more than happy to offer drop offs and pick ups to this school.

I have always liked to offer a wide range of activities and outings for the children to experience on a daily basis, such as the local zoo, nature trails local toddler groups, messy play, local parks and duck pond, local splash park, plus several soft play areas - to name but a few!

Due to the current climate I’m enjoying having lots of adventures with the children, but we are tending to find more outdoor activities, such as The British Ironworks, Blists Hill, The Sunflower Trail, Community Orchards, Nature Reserves, Northycoate Petting Farm, Ironbridge Gorge!

Everyday is a new exciting experience for both me and the children.

I like the parents to feel completely involved with their children’s day, so keep them fully involved with their children’s activities and learning achievements through an online learning journal.

This ensures that your little ones day and achievements both with me and at home are captured perfectly.

School holidays have given me the opportunity to experience a wider range of days out which have in the past included - Air Shows, Local Beaches Legoland, London Eye, London Museums, Marsh Farm, Watt Tyler Country Park and lots lots more!

I think it is important that the children feel part of an extended family and that my home is somewhere that they know they are welcome, feel safe, can relax and most importantly are happy and look forward to coming to, so I like to include them in planning snacks and activities

If there is anything I have not mentioned or that you wish to ask please feel more than welcome to contact me.

I enjoy keeping myself busy in my free time and am a keen cyclist and also enjoy my time spent volunteering with St John Ambulance as a First Aider.

My Experience

I have been a mum since 1993 and a registered childminder since 17th November 1998 and I really enjoy watching the children develop from babies into individual children with wonderful personalities.

My Qualifications

I have completed several qualifications, including
Early years Safer Recruitment
First Aid,
Food Hygiene
Channel General Awareness
Learning within A Home Environment
Promoting Race Equality In A Childcare Setting
ICT Within The Foundation Stage

My Availability

I have full and part time vacancies. I am happy to offer term time only, or just school holiday cover.

I am very fortunate to find myself living across the road from St Peters Primary School.

Tracy has been looking after my little one since he was 6 months old and full time. From the start, Tracy was incredible and made me feel at ease as I went back to work. My little one settled in well and grew to love Tracy. He never cried when dropped off in fact sometimes he wouldn’t want to let go of her. Tracy has not only been professional but has communicated well with us and helped Hugo’s development. She has nurtured Hugo as if he was her own and I will forever be grateful to her.

Wish you all the best Tracy xxx

Tracy is an amazing childminder. My daughter has been going there since she started at John Bunyan ( she is going into year 5 in September). She absolutely loves going and the activities that Tracy plans for them. Not one child is left out of an activity.

Thank you so much for the lovely review.
I absolutely love look after her and feel like she is one of the family.
I honestly feel she is a wonderful, kind, thoughtful and well behaved young lady and is a credit to you both.

My 3 year old son Charlie has been going to Tracy’s now for just over a year and he absolutely loves it! It’s so wonderful that we found someone as lovely as Tracy, Danielle and Paige. They are constantly doing things with the children, keeping their mind stimulated such as arts and crafts, number activities and handwriting practice. As well as visiting multiple playgroups which allows the children to experience different places and interact with other children.

Its so lovely when Charlie comes home from Tracy’s talking about all the things he’s done that day, usually with some artwork in tow that he can’t wait to show off. Some days he doesn’t want to leave as he’s having so much fun!

Would recommend Tracy to anyone, she’s so kind, caring and absolutely adores all of the children she looks after.

Thank you so much for the wonderful review.
We love welcoming Charlie into our home and feel very privileged to be able to be part of Charlies life and watching him grow and develop on a daily basis.
He has the most amazing character and I love the fact I get to have Charlie make me laugh and smile.

Our son has been going to Tracy since I returned to work when he was 8 months old. I’m a nurse and because of my shift times sending him to nursery was not going to be possible so we started looking as soon as he was born for the perfect childminder. Tracy has been very accommodating of my early start times and has always been reliable and provided amazing care and learning opportunities to our son.

He is now 3 and half and absolutely adores going to Tracy’s. We have been so impressed with how his numeracy, literacy and language have developed, and he loves socialising with the other children.

Tracy provides him with a healthy and varied breakfast, lunch and snacks, and she always makes an effort to create different experiences and outings for the children.

Communication is great and we get daily updates about the day they’ve had.

Cannot recommend highly enough.

P.S. They makes such an effort with arts and crafts for special occasions I.e. Mother’s/ Father’s Day etc. We really appreciate the lovely keepsakes we now get to keep.

Thank you for such a beautiful review.
I can honestly say that looking after him is a honour and one of the priceless parts of being a childminder.
Having these little cute bundles arriving on day one and watching them become confident little individuals is the one part of childminding that will never cease to amaze me
