Melissa Jane Henley-Jones

Ofsted Registered childminder living in Shepway, Maidstone in Kent. My name is Melissa and I run Cabin Tots from our family home where I live with my husband and our 3 children (aged 4, 8 and almost 11) whom I love to watch grow day by day.

Having worked in hospitality/healthcare industries since leaving school, I have now been blessed with the opportunity to work with children which is something I have always wanted to do. I have a lot of experience with my own children, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends of the family. 

We are fortunate enough to have a large outdoor space along with a log cabin extension for the children to play in. Our home is in a quiet cul-de-sac with easy drop off/pick up access. Full & part time care available for babies to primary school age and beyond if required. Open all year round.
