What we do

Hello my name is Melissa and I am a newly registered childminder in Newport, I live with my husband, two children and our friendly, family dog. As a registered childminder my aim is to provide a quality childminding service that allows children to learn and develop in a secure, safe home from home setting. Play will be at the centre of the child's learning and development. I will do all I can to make each child in my care feel valued, supported, safe and confident. My aim is to help every child in my care to thrive as best as possible through all our fun activities and outings. I endeavour to work closely with all parents/carers to ensure children are gaining the most from their time in my care as well as parents/carers feeling that they can come to me for any further recommendations.
