Meet Melissa

I'm a student currently studying Family and Human Services at the U of O. I have been babysitting for over 8 years, but have had experience with children for many more than that. I am currently CPR and First Aid trained, have my own transportation, and am a non smoker. I believe in the importance of play and crafts over television and electronics. Most importantly, though, I believe in following the parent's philosophies and creating a safe environment for children. I know finding a safe child care provider can be scary, which is why I would be happy to provide a background check and great references. I currently work with infants and toddlers (3 months to 2 years) at a childcare center, but I have experience with every age group. I also speak Spanish, although not fluent, I am conversational and still learning. I am always willing to do housework Read more and other activites around the house when needed. Most importantly, I believe in creating a fun and safe environment for children and their families.
