About this home

A welcoming, cosy, home from home environment in Colchester with lots of opportunities for both indoor and outdoor play. The children in my care will be able to explore and learn through play and also attend some lovely local playgroups and libraries. We have a lovely playroom, a large garden and separate sleep room. Fees include three meals per day, snacks and outings.

About our tiney childminder

I provide healthy and nutritious home cooked meals for the children in my care. I also enjoy baking and messy play with the children. I have a large, secure, enclosed garden that we will be able to enjoy all year round. I have 12 years of childcare experience having worked as a nanny before becoming a mother. My mother tongue is Hungarian but I also speak Romanian as well as English.

What others are saying about this home...

David and Laura

Mel is utterly dependable, hardworking, positively minded, caring, patient, mature, honest, sociable, and very experienced. Mel went above and beyond for us and our children. They loved being looked after by her and any child in the future will be lucky to be under her care.

Kate and James

Mel speaks fluent English and has been great at teaching our son new words, colours, numbers and letters but in a play-based environment. She is also extremely good at teaching manners. Our son adores her which is not surprising.
