Melanie is a lovely girl who my children specifically asked for to watch them after our initial meeting. She is friendly and trustworthy, great communication as well.
my kids loved having her here. She read them stories at bed time and was very calm with my excitable 6 year old (my 9 year old told me that my 6 year old was a bit crazy at bed time). I would definitely have her here again to look after the kids if I have to go out.

We've had Melanie come and babysit for us several times now in the evening. She's both looked after our five-year-old daughter when she was already in bed as well as putting her to bed and playing with her for an hour before bed time. Our daughter really likes her, she's always prompt and communicates well and we have absolutely no qualms of leaving our daughter in her care. We'd highly recommend Melanie's services.

Melanie was wonderful with our two young children ages 5 and 11. She made them feel at ease and they reported enjoying their time with her. She was also very communicative and flexible with us. She also followed instructions and cleaned up after the children at dinner time, We would definitely call Melanie again!

Melanie babysat my 4year old boy one evening. She was very warm and has a friendly nature. My wee boy said he had lots of fun when she was here and liked her a lot. She was punctual and nothing seemed too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend and I will definetley be in contact with her again for future babysitting.
