About Me

Hello my name is Melissa and I am a Ofsted registered and Barnet Quality Assured Childminder living in Colindale, and have been for a few years now. I provide a safe, friendly and caring home from home setting. I'm an active Childminder, working closely with other childminders in Barnet, promoting fun for children of all ages at home, outdoors, on trips and at playgroups. I am conveniently located 200m away from Colindale tube station and other major transport links. I am reliable, flexible, honest and friendly and enjoy working with children. I am married with a 7 year old son. I hold a CACHE Level 3 Childminding Certificate, Paediatric First Aid Certificate along with other qualifications, and both me and my husband both hold enhanced DBS checks which are automatically updated every year for parent peace of mind. We love visitors, so please feel free to come and visit my setting and I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.

Melissa is honestly the best childminder I could have hoped for, I was so worried about leaving my 1 year old with anyone when I returned to work, but it turns out I was worried about nothing.

She is amazing with my son and he has grown so attached to her that he actually shrieks in excitement when he sees her. She always does great activities with him and he really has flourished under her care.

Melissa will send me regular updates and I honestly am more relaxed when she has him then some immediate family members! Her home and car are completely safe and she is so amazing, patient and fun with the children that my son really has the best time possible when he is not with me.

Would definitely recommend to any one considering her, especially any nervous mum's who are completely paranoid like I was!
