Meet Melissa

My name is Melissa, I am 27 years old. The oldest of three siblings. My younger sister is 21 and my younger brother is 15. I am currently enrolled at Gateway Community College, studying early childhood education. My goal is to open my own Daycare center at some point. I worked at Alphabet Academy in Hamden, CT for almost three years. I currently live in North Haven, and previously lived in Hamden. I have babysat for my neighbor, Wendy. She has four girls; their ages now are 18, 16, 12, and 9. I’ve provided care for her family for 12 years now. I had experience with potty training and teaching them to walk. An average day for me at the daycare would consist of, morning snack, changing diapers, potty training techniques, positive reinforcement, engaging in activities with the children. While working at Alphabet I spent time in every classroom from Read more infants to the four and five year olds. I have also been first aid and CPR trained.
