Hi, I'm Melody Norris the Owner, I have been doing child care for 32 years in different capacities, from a Preschool teacher to Infant teacher and even the assistant director of a Center and loving every minute of it. I opened my first day care in Oregon in a small basement apartment in 1998. In 2012 I bought a new house which is now Melody's Munchkins. In 2020 I opened a second location, Little Blossoms. October 1st I will be opening a 3rd location Little Blooms. Each facility is licensed for 16 children.
My daughter Avery is the provider at my Little Blossoms location . She was raised in a childcare setting and decided to make childcare her career when she found out she was having a child of her own. She has been working now for 8 years, has a step 7.5 in the registry and has an Infant toddler Credential from Portland State University. My Sister Janet is the Provider at Melody's Munchkins. She moved from Medford in 2010 to help me out and be my cook and work with the infants. When we moved to the new house she became the provider and still does the cooking and gives breaks upon occasion. She has a step 9 on the registry and over 1,000 training hours in Early Childhood Development.
Today my families look for great quality and incredible service. I try to deliver on these expectations every time.
Melody's Munchkins is currently one of very few 5 Star quality rated child cares in Multnomah County and the only one in 97233.
I believe that families are a child's first teacher and it is my pleasure to take the lead from you in their care, and work together to make a plan for their development and education.
