About Me

I am Tracey Gangin. I live in Saggar Street, Pentland DD2 area beside 3 parks lochee , Balgay and Dudhope. As well as Balgay hill and observatory, St Joseph,s/ Balgay \ Ancrum and Blackness schools.... Balgay / law / St Marys nursery schools.
I live at home with 3 adorable cats whom frequent outdoors aswell as back indoors to sleep. They will gladly interact with your children and often join us on our local walks

Your children shall be encouraged to enjoy fun activities whilst exploring their surroundings and be nurtured to become independent confident young pre teens.

I use 2 rooms here at home, which are very child friendly and very well equipped for daily activities such as arts and crafts, table top activities and educational games, a story corner, puzzles, construction and imaginative building etc. I have a secure garden with a variety of outdoor equipment to improve physical skills whilst actively enjoying the fresh air. We plant our own vegetables in raised grow boxes and your children will help care for them.

I enjoy taking children outside for outdoor adventures to local parks , historic places of interest, scenic walks etc We love active day trips away when its school holiday times, taking packed lunches, lots of spare clothing and weather appropriate coats and foot wear.

We attend a local playgroup 1 morning and Library rhyme time 1 morning per week. So we socialise and make new friends too.
