Meet Melissa

Hi, my name is Melissa! I am a down-to-earth, mature, well-mannered, reliable, and responsible nanny/babysitter, with a great deal of experience and interest in children and their development. I have been working with children for 10+ years. I have worked with several different families, with children ranging from newborns, toddlers, primary-school age, and pre-teens. In 2006, I was certified under American Red Cross’s babysitting course and I am also currently CPR and First-Aid certified. I am confident in my ability to develop close relationships with both children and families. I’m filled with enthusiasm and creativity. I love to be involved with the children I am working with. I think this is necessary because children should enjoy the company of their nanny/babysitter. I enjoy being the person the children ask their parents when I’m coming back! I love to read with the children, create arts and crafts, play games and build Read more forts. I also like to keep the children active by visiting parks, museums, zoos, beach, movies, etc. In addition, I also have a car, which will help with all these activities. I have a valid driver’s license and a clean driving record. I would welcome the opportunity to be contacted so that I can answer any questions you may have. My references are available upon request.
