About Alphabet Kids


Hello, my name is Melissa.

I have worked with children, families, and teachers for over 25 years.

Many of these years have been spent in schools where I have held various roles. Ensuring opportunities for every child’s personal growth and success has always been at the heart of what I do.

As a mother to five, I often work with children from my home studio in Frankston South now, offering both Art for Wellbeing individual therapy sessions, and art classes. It just makes the juggle a little more manageable!

From the very young, fostering a child’s confidence to express their ideas and imagination is of critical importance.

My sessions are aimed at encouraging children to explore art mediums, develop their creativity and self-expression, while supporting their mental health and wellbeing, and fostering their self-esteem.
