Meet Melanie

I am an experienced childcare provider with a passion for childhood development. Having mothered my own children, I entered into the teaching profession with a particular interest in teaching Reading, Science and Special Education. I was a classroom teacher and thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with my students and the daily challenges! The knowledge and skills I have gained as both a mother and a teacher, have made me able to tackle almost anything with patience, compassion and a sense of humor!
What I bring to the children I care for, is a deep knowledge of childhood...

I am an experienced childcare provider with a passion for childhood development. Having mothered my own children, I entered into the teaching profession with a particular interest in teaching Reading, Science and Special Education. I was a classroom teacher and thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with my students and the daily challenges! The knowledge and skills I have gained as both a mother and a teacher, have made me able to tackle almost anything with patience, compassion and a sense of humor!
What I bring to the children I care for, is a deep knowledge of childhood development, coupled with the passion to work through any challenge, while growing and enjoying our time together.
I also view myself as a support system for parents. I will do whatever I can, to ease and enrich the time parents spend with their children. I view punctuality, reliability and open communication as extremely important components of a successful relationship, with families. I welcome the opportunity to join you in this very special partnership.
