My Experience

i've worked in childcare since i was 16 so over 30 years experience ,first in nursery then has a nanny.ive also had 11 happy years childminding caring for children from birth to teen years before returning to been a nanny/babysitter. I have full knowledge of the eyfs framework and practise this on a daily basis to ensure your little ones meet all their goals in life and are fully engaged through out the day. Early years education is very important to me and because of this I use an online learning tracker which allows us to work together at every single stage of the way. Babydays is the most advanced in its class. There’s no need to ask to view your child’s learning journal or development tracker because it’s at your fingertips at the push of a button. You are notified when a new observation is added or next steps are added. You can even set targets yourself. activities are planned around the child's interests and around the early years goals your child’s not quite reached yet. Tracy culpan.

Our 2year old joined little learners at the start of this year, he has been there for just over 3 months now and his development since joining here has been phenomenal. Tracy is amazing with all the children, everything they do includes EYFS themed play and she naturally helps the children with development. It's obvious from the start that she genuinely cares about all the children in her setting and we immediately felt comfortable with her. Alex loves her and settled so quickly, he now looks forward to his visits and every week he learns something new.
I would 100% recommend this lady to anybody looking for great care for their children, we are so happy we found her!

Our 13-months daughter is with Tracy from about 2months and she adores her from the beggining. I know she never gets bored there. She has lot of attractions like soft play, dancing lessons, crafts, etc. I am pleased because our LG have contact with the other children. We are Polish so she is also learning English language from early years. Tracy try to send me pictures and videos regularly, she also put them on Facebook(with my permission). My LG always come back home so excited and happy and that makes us happy too. We are sure that we found perfect care for our baby. I highly reccomended Tracy for everybody!

My son is nearly 14months has been with Tracy at Little Learners for the last few months since I went back to work. Initially I was really worried because he was a very clingy mummy’s boy who wasn’t confident around strangers or other children but what a difference a few months has made! He absolutely adores Tracy and gets giddy as we walk down her drive because he knows he’s going to see her.
Tracy completes a diary for me everyday so I know where he’s been, what mood he’s been in, what he has/hasn’t eaten and I regularly get photo updates during the day which brightens up my day at the office!
I feel it’s very much a home from home evnviroment for my son, I know he’s not just a number at Tracy’s like he would be at a nursery, she really takes the time to get to know every child and all their little quirks so she knows instantly if he’s not quite himself and will quite happily give him a cuddle if he needs it.
His confidence and development has come on leaps and bounds in the short time he’s been with Tracy and he’s now a very happy cheeky little boy who enjoys interacting with other adults and children.

Knowing he’s so happy with Tracy has made having to go back to work a lot easier. Huge thank you Tracy x

Our 2 children (2 yo and 5 yo) loved spending time with Tracy and couldn’t wait to see her every Monday. She had them for a year and was very good at ensuring they had a fun day and catered to our needs but also added learning to the play.
I’d highly recommend Tracy to anyone looking for childcare. Knowing our children was with Tracy left us feeling confident in her care when we had to be at work.
