Meet Melanie

  • Comfortable with pets

I am a Nanny because I love children and I love being with them and caring for them in a home setting. One of my strengths is teaching children confilct resolution and how to effectively communicate their feelings. My curriculum approach includes assessing where the child is developmentally, and planning activities that support their development; physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually. I really enjoy cooking with children, doing art activities, reading, singing, puppets, and spending time with them outdoors. I particularly enjoy spending time with preschoolers because they love to play and interact with adults. I am a very hard worker, as I take pride in seeing the fruits of my labor. I've been told by others that I am a very good listener, am patient, gentle, dependable, and a good team player. These qualities, as well as my many years of childcare experience, along with my Associates Degree from Wheelock Read more College in Boston make me a very good candidate for anyone seeking a successful nanny.
