About Me

I am a mum of two children and I know how hard it is to get good child care, someone whom you can trust with the most precious beings in your life. I love teaching the early years watching them develop and grow into the lovely little preschoolers. It is a huge responsibility, and sheer joy at the same time. We have a lovely loving home that has all the facilities inside and outside for them to grow and learn and have all the tools they will need ready for school. It is home from home care that I provide. They have all the advantages of the Eyfs with the background of being able to have a lounge on the sofa or walks in the forest.

My Experience

I have been childminding for 3 years now. I work with EYFS children and offer evening wrap around care Monday - Wednesday. My home is the children’s home when they are here. We have a lovely garden with swing set and slide. Bouncy castle weather permitting in the summer/autumn. I have a garage turned into a arts and crafts room which we call the shack. We also have a room called the snug where we do lots of free play and role play. I provide all meals for the children in my care and they are home cooked wherever possible. We go on outings to the forest and softplay adventures when we can. We have a lovely green area where I live and we go out on this as much as we can. When choosing Little Scholars for your childcare requirements please note that we do have a dog. Pets play an important part in the children’s lives and all the children love them as much as we do. I have my own children still growing up at home as well. My job is a big part of my life and I thoroughly enjoy it to this end we have extended our family to that of our minded children’s families.

I am a qualified childminder in early years and I am registered and fully insured.

Couldn't recommend Mel more highly! My daughter Olivia absolutely loves going here, sometimes I think she would prefer to stay rather than come home!! Great home-cooked meals, a lovely environment and someone who is on the ball...what more could you want?!
