About Me

I live in Stamford and worked as an OFSTED Registered Childminder for 10 years providing childcare for families in and around the Stamford area working full time within my own home setting. I continued my own professional development through numerous workshops and appropriate training sessions such as Paediatric First Aid, Health and Safety, Safeguarding Children as well as obtaining a CACHE Level 3 in Childminding Practice from New College Stamford. I also studied for a Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Services graduating with a Distinction.

My Experience

In 2013 I registered with OFSTED as a NANNY and enjoyed the experience of providing one-to-one sole childcare and working closely with families in their own home.

My last childcare position entailed providing PA support and after school care to a family with children aged 5, 9 and 11.

I am now working as a self-employed housekeeper in a private household. I am responsible for laundry management, general household duties including some minor cleaning tasks and tidying, de-cluttering, maintaining order within the household, changing bed linen, unpacking shopping etc and other ad hoc tasks as required.

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.

Melanie joined us to provide after-school care when my wife was suffering from terminal cancer. She stayed with us throughout my wife’s decline and death and for a period of a year thereafter.

Her duties have included parental support, managing the children’s affairs, an organization of school and home clothing, babysitting, managing petty cash and general after-school support including pickup, laundry, and food preparation.

Mel has been an outstanding support for our family. She has always been on standby in case of an emergency and has always been both reliable and flexible.

She joined us during a very difficult period of our lives and was tremendous throughout difficult times, building a strong bond with the three boys and providing steady, sensible and practical support for me as a single parent. She has enabled me to maintain a healthy, happy and strong family life with a calm, caring and compassionate air throughout. She works with the children brilliantly, anticipating and meeting their needs whilst encouraging independence and personal organization. She's great fun to work with and absolutely to be recommended

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Melanie to care for my baby daughter. She always puts the child's interests first and provides a safe and truly caring and enjoyable environment - I have always felt assured my daughter was in goods hands from day 1.

In addition to requiring good quality childcare, which every parent looks for, I also needed quite demanding hours. Melanie has been very easy to get along with in negotiating these, she is very well organised and totally reliable and dependable.

In summary, Melanie is a credit to her profession and I only wish our family wasn't moving!
