Coastal babysitter


Hello! I am Mel. Over the years I have built my career around caring and teaching children through play -based activities.

I have worked in childcare centres as a preschool teacher, community kindergarten teachers aid, managed my own family day care business for 9 years and then decided that I needed to challenge myself. I completed my undergrad and are currently doing my Masters degree in Social work- to become a peer support person that helps families with neurodiverse children. I am a happy single mum of five children (7 to 26 years) who is quite passionate about nurturing children’s development through fun experiences. I enjoy encouraging children to explore messy play, crafts, outdoor activities, imagination games and much more! If your child has a special interest let me know so I can plan something fun.

I look forward to meeting your family x
