Since 1995 Melisa has embraced the joys of working in & improving the role of a child care centre in our community. She sees the many opportunities we have to engage a family with a shared sense of connectedness and support in the local neighbourhood. Together, all the families can access services in early childhood health & development, fun activities, and prepare for progression to school.

Melisa has successfully directed a small family run preschool while studying a bachelor of teaching (early childhood) and feels strongly towards always being open to educating children and ourselves in ways that will further develop our understanding of our responsibilities and responsiveness to each other.

Over the last twenty years in early childhood education and care Melisa has learned something good always comes from the challenging life experiences because through them we learn to make better choices. She encourages all people big and small to develop strong and unique abilities so we may flourish and make many great achievements over our lifetime.
