Tracy's Tiny Tots

I would like to welcome you to Tracy’s Tiny Tots.  My name is Tracy Martinez and I have been a Licensed Home Childcare Provider since March of 2003.  However, I have been providing care for children since June of 2002.  I have an older step-daughter and two school age children of my own.  I am CPR, First Aid and MAT Certified.  I am also on the Board as Secretary for the Fredericksburg Area Family DayCare Association and a member of the Virginia Alliance for Family Childcare.

 

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business and prior to becoming a Home Childcare Provider I worked outside of my home as a Business Manager for a construction company.  I still offer my services to this company on a Consulting Basis on the weekends and have been with them for over 10 years.    

 

I understand the challenges you as a parent have working full time and raising children.  I decided to quit my full time job outside of my home in order to be here for my two children every day.  Being at home has also afforded me to take part in some of my hobbies which include scrapbooking, reading and crocheting.  It has been a very rewarding experience being home for my girls and I look forward to being a part of your children's lives as well.

My Philosophy

My goal is to provide your child(ren) with a clean, safe and comfortable environment where they can play and learn with guidance and loving care while you work.

The State of Virginia requires as a Licensed Provider that I receive at a minimum 16 hours of training every year in something that is childcare related.  

Some of the trainings I have taken in the past include:  Dollars and Sense - Communication Styles, Healthy Meals on a Budget, File Folder Games, Rules and Regulations for Your Daycare Business, ABC's of Preschool - Toddlers and Infant Eyesight, Dental Care for your Toddler, Preventing SIDS in your Classroom, Stages of Parenting: Building Relationships with Parents, Daily Health Assessments, Communicable Disease and Infection Control in Day Centers, Nutritious Snacks, Celebration of Caring for Children - 7 Keys to a Super Duper Classroom - Discipline for Children in Childcare - Shake Rattle and Roll with Fun and Fitness - Managing Morning Craziness - Building Brain Power in Young Children - Teaching Children about Sharing and Caring, Safe Sleep and Biting Prevention  - Emergency Preparedness - Bullying - Health and Safety - Creating a Budget for Your Daycare - Behavior Modification - Health and Wellness - Building Relationships with Parents - Thrifty Healthy Meals - Problem Solving - CPR/1st Aide recertification - MAT recertification - Every Child Ready to Read - From Rattles to Riding Toys - Can I put A Parent in Time Out - Trash to Treasure, transforming junk to educational toys ---
