About Me

Hi, my name is Tracy and Ive been married for the past 39 years and have brought up a family of 5, the youngest is now 22 years old. I have lived in Coleraine (opposite Coleraine University) for the past 25 years. I was previously a qualified dental nurse with all the relevant medical training but decided on a change of career. So I’ve now been childminding for over 10 years and I really enjoy it. I am registered with NHSCT and I am fully insured both house and car. We have a large enclosed back garden with plenty of outdoor toys. On wet days I entertain the kids by drawing, baking, playing games, educational toys and story-telling
Large secure back garden with safety chippings for peace of mind.
A wide range of outdoor toys eg,
Trampoline with safety net

My Experience

I have had plenty of experience after raising 5 kids of my own which include twins and now that they're all grown up I miss the chaos and laughter that kids can bring. I believe that kids should get as much outdoor activity (weather permitting) as possible and frequently attend mother and toddler groups as well as taking them to the park.
I was also a rainbow/brownie leader in Portstewart for a number of years.

Tracy has been our childminder for three and a half years and in this time has become like a member of our family. Our kids love her to bits and she genuinely could not have done any more for us. She has created a safe and stimulating environment for her little ones with plenty of games and activities on offer. I would not hesitate at all to highly recommend!!

Tracey has cared for my two children aged 6 and 4, for 18 months. The environment Tracey has created is secure and stimulating and my children love being with her and her family. I have found the care to be exceptional and reliable and I am so relived to be able to trust her with my most prized possessions!!!
