Melanie says

” I have always worked with children. initially I taught in a Primary school. After having my own children I changed to working with Younger children. I love how seeing life through a child’s eyes reminds us of the awe and wonder in the world and to appreciate life.

I have 3 boys of my own so the majority of my spare time appears to be spent stood in fields supporting their various sporting hobbies. As a family we like walking, swimming, cycling and camping. A rare but special moment would involve a good book, a bar of dark chocolate and 5 minutes peace and quiet !

Melanie’s life motto is

” Be kind, try your best and be happy”
