Melissa is very experienced but really enjoys interacting with my children. They look forward to Melissa coming round. She is always interested to chat to them and they enjoy her reading them bedtime stories. She is very warm and caring but ensures they still get to bed on time!

Melissa is superb. Friendly, professional, flexible and most importantly my daughter loves her! She runs a great business and offers a great range of services supported by her team. She gives a huge amount of time and effort to her clients and to making sure all members of her team are the 'right fit' for all.
We love her!
