Melissa’s Bio

My name is Melissa Alfonso, I have been an Early childhood educator  in the child care industry for more than 12 years  and am well experienced with working  with infants, toddlers, preschool and school-aged children. I have great potentials as a Caregiver, Child Care Professional, or nanny. I am designed to not just meet parent’s need but to also  meet children’s social, physical, intellectual, creative, cultural, emotional and developmental needs in a play-based environment.  To teach children important social skills that contribute to their social development and house environment. I also been a nanny for more than 7 years. I have many years of experience and am looking to nanny again. I am very passionate loving and caring. I enjoy pets and am very creative and energetic. I currently teach at a child care center and I lead the Infant program. I have been doing this now for a year and a half and my former job before was an Andover family which I absolutely love and miss but still keep in touch. Unfortunaley the children are too old now for a nanny and that is the reason in which I went back to childcare. However, I truly did enjoy being a nanny and am willing to nanny again full time. I am very educated and attended University of Mass Lowell. I hold a  BA in Psychology and ECE. I have great references and hold a resume as well. If you think I can be your next nanny/babysitter please don't hesitate to email me melissaalfonso83@yahoo.com I would love to work and be your next nanny/babysitter for a child deserves the best everything and I can promise you that I will do everything to make your child smile and not just learn but to always smile and be confident for I believe that everything you do teaches something and that is absolutely true. :)
