Melissa’s Bio

Hello Families,

I love working with children and I have extensive experience with children of all ages and needs. I am a licensed children's therapist, work for the Department of Education and I am also an avid babysitter!!

I have been babysitting personally since I was 12 years old and I have over 10 years of professional experience as a children's therapist. I have worked with children of all ages from infants (feedings, changing diapers, taking them for walks in the stroller, Dr. 's appointment, music classes and so on) to high school age children. I also have extensive experience with children with special needs and speech and language delays.

I am caring, energetic, very reliable, patient, and creative child care provider. I love to have fun when I am babysitting (I have been known to get down on my knees and play in the sandbox, dance a little silly at Gymboree and music class, make yummy oatmeal raisin cookies (low in sugar, of course!) and read Good Night Moon, Pinkalicious, and Superman books over and over again) as well as engage children in all different types of other activities.

If a family would like any additional information or professional license verification I would be happy to provide that information. I can also provide excellent references upon request.

I look forward to meeting you and your children:-)
