My Summary

About Me

Hi my name is Melissa. I love to be busy with my children and I'm looking forward to sharing our fun. I can give your little ones a loving family environment in which to learn and develop new skills.

I have been happily married for fourteen years and we have three beautiful children (14yrs, 12yrs and 6yrs). I live in a 4 bedroom town house with a large open plan play area and well resourced garden. We enjoy family days out to the farm, the zoo, riding our bikes, flying kites on the Downs and exploring the National Trust.

Please contact me and I'll send you a prospectus.

My Experience

I have been a childminder for 5 years and before this I was a primary school teacher for 13 years. I have worked across the primary curriculum and specialised in Key Stage 1 and the EYFS in recent years.

I worked in America as an au pair for a family with three children in Chicago before going to university. And during my summer holidays at university I taught swimming at a New York summer camp for girls.

Melissa is an amazing childminder! She offers a homely environment offering a fabulous range of toys and activities. My son was unhappy in his previous childcare but since going to Melissa he has been so happy and really loves the time he spends with Melissa, so I have been reassured that I made the right decision. She is kind, caring and loving. I really feel that my son is made to feel part of the family. Melissa is excellent at communicating on day to day happenings and progress; both verbally and through a home communication book. I am really happy that we chose Melissa and can recommend her highly!

Melissa is an outstanding minder. She is calm, patient, empathic and organised with three beautiful children of her own who are polite and affectionate with my girls- a credit to her. Coupled with Melissa's past being in primary teaching, she is really over qualified to look after small children and as a result, I have never felt fearful of leaving my girls with her. I feel that Melissa has gone out of her way to accommodate us and make my girls feel like one of her family. I recommend her whole heartedly to anyone looking for a childminder or school pickup/ drop off.
