Healthy Choices

The heart of our nursery is the kitchen, both literally and figuratively. All of our rooms flow around this fundamental central point. At the Mulberry Bush we are totally committed to healthy eating from when our babies start weaning. Our children are able to sample different tastes and textures while enjoying healthy, homemade meals and snacks which will lay the foundations for an understanding and enjoyment of healthy eating, hopefully forever!

“Healthy eating and physical activity are essential for proper growth and development in childhood. To help children develop patterns of healthy eating from an early age, it is important that the food and eating patterns to which they are exposed – both at home and outside the home – are those which promote positive attitudes to good nutrition. “

An Environment To Thrive In

We believe that children will learn through everything they do provided it is fun! That is why we have developed each area of the Mulberry bush, both inside and out, to provide the children with the best tools to enjoy every aspect of their day and to expand their world in all directions, whatever activity they are immersed in. Children spend a lot of time in the nursery environment so we have made our spaces as flexible as possible. This ensures that we can vary their experience, keeping things fresh and stimulating and helping to extend their learning in every way.
