Marie, Parent

“My son has been going for a couple of months now and he loves it. Mel does so many different activities with him from trips to the play parks, to the SeaLife Centre to staying in reading and playing with toys. I am always kept up to date with messages and photos throughout the day and I get a daily journal and a scrap book of Archies development. I would highly recommend Sunhaven.”


Angela, Parent

“I can't recommend Melanie at Sunhaven Childminding enough! She has been amazing with my 4 month old who has settled in so well. It's also reassuring that she sends me updates and pictures during the day so I can see what they've been getting up to! She is also fantastic with my older 2, keeping them both busy with plenty of fun activities after school, including arts and crafts as well as baking and hunting for conkers. I'm so pleased to have found a childminder that all my kids love.” -September 2018

“Melanie has been amazing with all 3 of my children of varying ages. She is always taking my youngest to lots of fun groups and days out, and when she picks the older two up from school they often go to the park or she has lots of fun activities for them to do. They all love going! I also get plenty of updates on what they've been up to which is lovely. The setting is fantastic and very homely, and the kids have never complained about the food, so it must be good too!” -January 2019


Lynda, Previous Employer

“Melanie is a caring enthusiastic childcare professional who always worked to the best of her abilities with the child in the centre of everything she does. She is knowledgeable about the EYFS and safe guarding procedures. Melanie showed good teamwork and a great ability to work independently. Melanie was always willing to further her professional development and undertake further training. She made good bonds with parents and children working with children from 3 months to school age observing, assessing and tracking children progress.”


Jamie, Parent

“Our son loves attending and is getting an excellent introduction to early life through Sunhaven.”


Kathryn, Past Parent

“Melanie is warm and smiley. She seems at ease with all ages of children. The physical setup is fantastic and oozes homeliness and care. I wish we lived nearby so my son could come more often!”


Lois, Past Parent

“I’m so pleased Mel was able to provide emergency childcare for my 13 month old when his regular childminder was unavailable. As soon as I met Mel and saw the facilities she had I knew my little boy would be well looked after (and entertained!) while in her care. I appreciated the updates and pictures through the day and knowing he was coming home after a home cooked hot meal was a weight off my shoulders after a long day at work. He even napped better with Mel than with his regular childminder. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sunhaven a hundred times over. Thanks for everything Mel!”


Jana, Parent

“My daughter is enjoying Melanie’s company and all the entertainment so much. Thank you xx”
