We found Melody on SitterCity 2 years ago and she has been our go-to-nanny/babysitter ever since. Melody is always energetic and is full of wonderfully creative and fun (non-TV) activities for the kids to do. Both our boys (and the neighborhood kids!) adore Melody and look forward to her coming to see them. We trust her completely in our home and with our children - she cared for our then 2 yo son for 2 weeks in our home when my husband and I had to travel overseas. She is always prompt and reliable, and has impeccable references. Melody has always worked with us re: discipline and will enforce our rules while we are gone - something not all nannies/babysitters feel comfortable doing. We are transplants to Charlotte and do not have family to rely upon when we need childcare. Melody fills that gap for us. There is noone I would trust more completely than her when it comes to our home and our children. We feel lucky to have her.

Melody is a wonderful nanny! She is very dependable, accomodating, caring, and fun. My children love her and are very comfortable with her. She always has non-TV activities planned for the day. We would highly recommend her!
