My little girl of 14 months went to Mels on a Wednesday while I worked . Can’t rate her enough truly amazing nanny highly recommend .
Mel has been a private nanny for our 20-month-old daughter for the past 7 months, and we couldn’t speak more highly of her.
She’s caring, compassionate, creative, kind, helpful, accommodating and the type of person who’s made for the work she does.
Every day she takes our daughter outdoors and also does lots of creative artwork, letter and number learning, nursery rhymes, phonics and so much more.
We’re making a change to our childcare arrangements because of a change in our personal circumstances, otherwise we would have clung to Mel for much longer, as we know we’re unlikely to ever find anyone as good. She’s a tough act to follow.
The next family to get Mel Mel (as my daughter calls her!) will be very lucky.
If anyone would like to contact me for any more information or reassurance about the excellent care Mel provides please reach out via the app.

Thank you so much Jess .. brought a tear to my eye reading this..xx
Where to start with this wonderful childminder! Both of my children have been with Mel, my son since he was about 6 months old and my daughter from around 8 months old. Both of them love Mel Mel to bits! She’s very caring, fun, engaging, takes them out regularly to the park, Sealife Center (which is a firm favourite with my 2!!) and they always have a great time. Mel makes you feel at ease and is always very accommodating and flexible with days and times when I’ve needed to be! It made going back to work so much easier knowing they were in safe hands. We are going to miss her so much but luckily she is still going to be in our lives :-)

Thank you Claire .. luckily they are only 2 doors down and I will still get to see them regularly x
Mel looked after my son since he was 9 months old and he has just left. Mel and her family formed a beautiful relationship with my son and took him in as part of her family. He loved going to Mel Mels and was always happy and settled. I would highly recommend and use Mel again in the future.

Thank you Vicky .. I am looking forward to hearing all about Billy's 1st day at school in September xx
Our daughter was with 'Mel Mel' for several months, and over this time we saw her develop confidence, a fabulous vocabulary and a love of hanging out with other children of all ages. Mel is exceptionally well organised and the set up perfect for exploring and learning. We would not hesitate to recommend Mel to anyone in the area!
