Committed to providing the very best!
At the Mulberry Bush we celebrate each and every child as an individual. We work with the key person programme to enable every child to forge a strong, trusting bond with their primary carer in the nursery, as well as good, positive relationships with the rest of the team. Your child’s key person will be responsible for ensuring that they receive tailor-made care, designed to help them develop in ways that interest them and at their own pace. Your key person is also responsible for sharing your child’s day with you when you come to collect them; what they have enjoyed and achieved.

Dedicated to supporting the unique child
“The Mulberry Bush is a family run business combining intimacy and personal atmosphere and attitude with the investment and infrastructure of a much larger organisation.
At the Mulberry Bush we believe passionately that each child is unique and full of potential and our role is to enable them to full fill this. We do so by providing safe, caring, engaging and challenging environments for our children to learn and develop in. Guided by our highly trained and committed team, each child's experiences are tailored to their own, individual needs. This individual care goes beyond the day to day nursery experience and we can play an important part in supporting parents and families.
Helping our children to grow and develop is a great and wonderful responsibility and we are proud to say that when we send our children on to school they are confident and happy in the learning environment, well prepared and eager for their next stage in life.”
I am so lucky to work with such lovely children and their families in such a wonderful environment and I delight in watching children flourish and grow, achieving new skills every step of the way. I feel privileged that myself and my team play such an integral part in children’s early years cementing those important building blocks which will stay with them for life.
Deputy Nursery Manager
I specialised in Early years whilst doing my Primary teacher training at university. I am passionate about children learning through different play opportunities, using their own creativity to expand their thinking and open new learning experiences. At the Mulberry Bush we are a huge part of children’s lives and it is paramount that we can give them the best opportunities to grow ready for their transition to big school. I am very excited to be a part of the new development of the nursery, especially the outside areas!
Company Director, Director of Early Years for the Mulberry Bush Nurseries
A qualified teacher with an advanced specialism in early years I have spent the last 9 years working with children aged 9 months to 6 years old. During this time I have been a teacher in a local outstanding ofsted rated school as well as a room leader, deputy and a manager of preschools in and around the Southampton area. In my previous roles I was asked to make positive changes and developments to struggling settings. My main passion is about ensuring high quality childcare and education and I hope that my knowledge and expertise will enable me to continue to drive the Mulberry Bush’s passion and enthusiasm for outstanding childcare forward.
Early Years Support Coordinator
The Mulberry Bush is a fantastic environment for both staff and children, it offers many opportunities for children to expand on their knowledge and development and it is a privilege to be a part this and to watch them grow. For the staff there are always opportunities to develop their personal skills in a supportive environment.
