The Mulberry Bush is a bespoke private day nursery situated in Locks Heath, Southampton. 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 physical experience, keeping things fresh and stimulating. Additional activity areas including: Sensory Room, Forest Area, Garden, Mud Kitchen, Growing Area.
