My name is Melanie and I have been in the childcare profession since 2013. I live in Wiggenhall St Germans, with my fiancé Jacob, and Oakley, our golden retriever. We are originally from Gloucestershire and Herefordshire.

Sunhaven Childminding has been my dream for over 4 years now and we are finally here! I am so glad you are considering me to take care of your child. I understand choosing childcare can be a scary and difficult decision, so I will work closely alongside you and your family to make settling in your child a smooth and stress-free transition.



Jacob is my fiancé who works full time as a Broadcast Engineer. We have been together for over 7 years and moved to Norfolk in the October of 2017 to buy our first family home together.

He is the handy-man about the house and is to thank for all of the renovating and decorating in The Annex.

Jacob is in charge of the financial side of Sunhaven Childminding and making sure the admin is run smoothly and effectively.



Oakley is a very lovable Golden Retriever who adores children.

At Sunhaven, we think he is a wonderful asset to have around, as he is an opportunity for the children to learn to care for others, to be gentle and learn about animals and creatures.
