Melanie’s Bio

Hi there... I am 42 years old and work as the Program Director for an Assisted Living Community.  Children are now and always have been my passion.  I am a college graduate who has worked with children (many with special needs) for over 25 years.  I am fun, energetic and trustworthy and have a number of references who can provide any other information that may be helpful for you.   I am first and foremost a Mom of school aged children.  I know first hand what a challenge it is to find that special person with whom you will trust your most precious little one/ones.
I am highly skilled in newborn/infant care...everything from diapering, feeding, and bathing to getting the baby on a schedule.
I am a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist, so play is my thing!  Not that it will help with your child care needs, but I am also a Certified Dementia Practitioner.    Things I love:  My husband, my children, my puppy, my Church and my friends.
I am so looking forward to talking with you about how I can help with with not only your child care needs, but in nurturing and helping your little one feel cherished and special.
