Meet The Owner

Melissa Salazar

As the Director/Owner of Melissa’s Family Childcare, I have 16 years of Early Childcare experience. I am committed to helping children explore and learn in a hands-on environment and dedicated to ensuring that all children and families have the opportunity to succeed. On a more personal note, I’ve been in a happy/loving relationship for 14 years. We have 3 daughters, 2 sons and 2 wonderful grandchildren!! We have always enjoyed traveling and watching sports but most importantly we love spending quality time with our family, whether it be a movie night on the big screen outside, game night, dinner on the grill or just some good time laughs in the living room. At Melissa’s Family Childcare our approach to learning focuses on PLAY! Our well trained and dedicated teachers use only an age-appropriate curriculum that aligns with Arizona’s Early Learning Standards to ensure a lifelong love of learning, exploration, independence, laughter and FUN all in a nurturing environment.

Core Values


Our Mission at Melissa’s Family Childcare is to provide quality childcare for all families in the community in a warm nurturing, loving and educational environment.


To deliver the best and most trusted early learning childhood education and child care services for families.


The Director and staff of Melissa’s Family Childcare believe that children deserve the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe, enriching environment. We believe learning happens though positive relationships, exploration, experiences and sense of belonging that enable children to become productive contributors to the world in which they live. We believe that children are competent, capable of complex thinking, curious and rich in potential. We are committed to making improvements that help prepare children for school and life. I believe the early years of a child’s life are the most important. I believe learning is happening all the time and is intertwine through all developmental domains which include, physical, social/emotional, cognitive and communication. Therefore, the goal of my program is to make this ongoing learning experience safe, positive, and FUN, nurturing the whole child as we strive to guide them into the next stage of development with confidence in themselves and an excitement for continued learning. Melissa’s Family Childcare provides warm, personalized care and developmentally appropriate programs for infant, toddler, preschool and school age children. Parents rely on Melissa and her staff to deliver these special and unique services. We have provided care for many children who have benefited from our early learning program that is designed just for them.
