Meet Melissa

I have been an at home mom for 20 years. I have raised and am still raising 6 children. One is soon to be married and one is busy with college. The other 4 still home with me are ages 4 - 12. I homeschool them, and also homeschooled my two oldest all the way through. It is completely doable to do with babies around, and actually can be great for them. (babies enjoy just being around the other children, and toddlers and preschoolers can start learning right alongside everyone else) I'd love to explain that more if you have any questions. I know if it is something new to you, it can raise questions. I absolutely love being a mommy and I love children. My goal as a child care provider is to make your child feel safe, loved and welcomed in our home. I would prefer to watch Read more a child (or infant) or two from the same family. Your child/children would be lavished with attention in our home! My children are very sweet and well behaved. I do not plop children in front of the television. I believe in educational toys and lots of books and art supplies. And as long as you are okay with it, I also believe in plenty of hugs and kisses. :)
