Tracey Nursery Manager

Miss Tracey – Village End Manager

With a longstanding passion for childcare, Tracey founded Village End to help parents with flexible and affordable childcare. With three grown up children of her own and over 18 years of experience, Tracey has a wealth of knowledge that she brings to the business, as well as acting as a much loved mentor to her staff team.

Tracey oversees the nursery but still loves to spend time with the children singing and having fun, and is on hand to speak to parents about any questions they may have. Tracey is dedicated to every child’s success when they are both in our setting and at home and works with parents/carers to build individual child plans if you are struggling in any areas, such as picky eaters.
