Melanie’s Bio

I graduated from Smith College in May 2013 with a degree in Psychology, a minor in sociology, and an in-depth practice of dance and performance. I am the middle child of five kids and have over 10 years of childcare experience, working with new babies and kids up to 15 years old.

During the 2014-2015 school year, I worked as a personal aid to a child and as a teacher assistant in a school for children with autism and developmental disabilities; I've worked with a wide range of abilities. As a yoga teacher, dancer, and singer, I bring a creative, active, and mindful energy to my care. I've also spent several summers as a teacher at children's dance-art camps. I'm an animal lover and will love your pets!

I've been a licensed driver for 8 years and I have my own car with four additional seat belts. I believe children deserve to be seen, heard, loved and praised. A healthy childhood leads to a healthy future! Please contact me if you're interested. Thank you!
