Hello my name is Mel, and I LOVE caring for children. It’s the most rewarding job out there!
I have recently moved to beautiful Wanaka from Adelaide, South Australia.
I have had many years experience in caring for children of all ages. I have worked as a teacher in several schools, having completed my Masters in Primary Education. As well as this, I have also recently undertaken casual work in Early Childhood Centres across Wanaka and surrounding areas.
Prior to relocating, I was provided with an opportunity to work full time in the media and events industry. Although this digressed a little from my ideal job and love of being around children, it was a great experience for me. Over the two years of working in this role, I was lucky enough to plan and deliver a number of family and child orientated events, activities and activations. It was a lot of fun!
I am a warm, positive and nurturing person with a desire for all children to feel safe, confident and comfortable in my care. I love exploring the outdoors, but equally as much I enjoy arts and crafts, cooking, sports and caring for wildlife and animals.
I have a full drivers licence as well as a safe and tidy car.
I look forward to creating memorable experiences with your children that they can share with you at the end of the day!
