Hi I'm Mel. My husband and I live in Taupo. I have been an Educator with Kids At Home for 4 years. I have qualifications in NZ Early Childhood Education and Care Level 3, NZ Certificate in Nanny Education Level 5 and a NZ First Aid Certificate. I offer a Spacious, warm home away from home that offers a nurturing environment to both children and animals.
We love animals and have a few pets in our home, which my care children quickly develop close bonds with. I have a large rear fully fenced section for all kinds of adventures, that is located a 5 minute drive from town center. I love to take the children out and about in the community, meeting up with other educators; where the children form close relationships with each other. I enjoy watching the children grow into their personalities, learning new skills and challenging themselves to do new things; knowing that they are in a safe place. We attend weekly playgroups, music sessions and gymnastics once a month as part of our regular routine.
I enjoy being apart of a child's learning journey and I look forward to meeting with you and your family very soon!

I have had my kids in care with Mel since 2015 and have no plans on changing!
My girls have absolutely flourished with Mel, and are growing into amazing little people. They do something different every day, have new adventures and learn lots new things.
Mel’s play based education/care is spot on! My kids are so happy, smart and full of life. I couldn’t have asked for or chosen a better person for my girls. And when the time is right, I will choose Mel again for the care of my son. - H Provo
- I love to meet with any potential future families
