About Me

I am a happily married, fun loving mum of five children. Two have grown and flown the nest leaving me with just three boys still at home (12,11 and 3). I believe in providing a safe and secure home environment, where children can thrive, where play is really important as well as consistent structured routines. These all help ensure children feel safe and happy. I include the children's ideas and interests in all my planning. My aim is to provide a stimulating environment for children through positive interactions with them.
Our routines includes trips to the local park, walks on the beach (a stones throw away), adventures at the wildlife park and a good run around at soft play.

My Experience

I have 22 years experience of caring for children. My children have given me a wealth of knowledge in child development and I have worked in a local nursery for pre school children.

Below are the latest reviews for Melanie. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

It is with much pleasure that I'm able to recommend Melanie as a babysitter. She has been taking care of my kids after school hours during the week days as well as doing school runs in the morning and evening. She is kind, compassionate, and always enthusiastic and willing to engage kids. Mel as we call her, always has a smile on her face and my kids love spending time with her. Always comes up with new ideas when it comes to keeping kids engaged.

Mel utilises the time that she spends with kids by teaching them good things and helping them with their homework.

I am glad we found her.
