Hi my name is Tracy . I live in a quiet cul de sac with my Husband and two children age 11 and 13.
I provide fixed (same sessions each week) or flexible care (different weekly sessions) (mimimum of 4hrs per session and 8 hrs per week unless agreed) usually between 8 am and 6pm but I am willing to discuss any requirements. I can also provide emergency or short term care.
My setting is a home from home setting where your children can feel safe and secure whilst having fun and learning. I don't take on maximum numbers so it keeps my setting more relaxed. We follow the same EYFS guidance as nurseries and your child will have their own development profile and development checks that you can veiw and help to complete.
I can provided meals or you can supply your own.
I do school runs to Alderwood infant School, Alderwood junior school and Maple vue nursery at the normal sessional times.
I attend toddler groups, soft play, baby gym, childminding groups and the park. When we are not out and about I provide fun and educational activities based on age and developmental stage of the children. Children also have choice of different toys and activities if they wish.
My husband works as a paramedic so he works shift work and is around somtimes. He is registered as my assistant as he has all relevant checks and required training so he can be a spare pair of hands if needed.
I use a digital online system called Baby's Day's which allows you to keep up to date with what your child has been up to whilst with me and allows you to view there developmental records, photographs and videos, accident forms or medical records at any time from any device with internet access. This also has the added benefit that you can share as much or as little with other family members who may not live so close or aren't able to come and view the childrens normal journals at the setting. At the same time it is safe and secure requiring passwords and pin numbers to access information.
It invites you to make comments and add notes so you can be as involved as you wish.

My son started with Tracy in Feb 2014 at 18 months old and he is still with her now 1 day per week and he will be starting school this September.
He loves spending the day with Tracy and has lots of fun. And he has progressed so much whilst with her! She organises learning activities for all children based on their abilities not as a whole to help them learn more. She has taken my son to a whole range of toddler groups, soft play, baby gym etc and makes all learning fun.
My son is at nursery 2 days per week now to prepare him for school yet I wanted him to still be with Tracy 1 day per week as I know he enjoys being there and that he would progress better academically with her than he would at nursery.
My son is currently going through diagnosis for Autism and Tracy has been great with him before this came to light and now. So she has no problem dealing with extra needs or challenging behaviour.
Very flexible and helpful with working parents etc and changing days if need be. I couldn't ask for a better childminder and wouldn't hesitate to contact Tracy if I have more children.
I have known Tracy for quite some time and i use her childminding services for my two children, one who is 6 and one who is 8. I highly recommend her childcare, Tracy is an extremly calm and kind natured person, who always puts childs needs first. There is always plenty for my children to do whilst in her care, as she takes alot of time and effort in planning and preparing excellent activities for the kids. Tracys childcare setting is in a perfect location, with ample outdoor playing space, aswell as a safe and secure child friendly home, which makes my children feel very relaxed and happy to be there. I would never think of looking anywhere else for childcare, Tracy is an absolute must for anyone in need of her services.
My two children Megan, 4 and Joshua, 1 have been cared for by Tracy for over 6 months now and I could not praise her enough. Although my two children are only part time with her they adore her and enjoy spending the time they have with her learning new things. Tracy has a very well structured learning timetable where they learn about different things each month and within that they also cover the basics with number and letter recognition.
Tracy has always been very flexible and is very approachable and caring. She has provided my two children with excellent levels of childcare and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder in the Hampshire area.
