What is special about Mulberry Cottage?

At Mulberry Cottage we focus on providing the highest quality of care and education for the children under our care.

We are a family run service with over 30 years experience in childcare. Having raised children ourselves we believe the secrete to a great childcare centre is to provide an environment where children feel at home and loved.

To achieve our goal, we have created two specialised centres designed for the age groups from 6 weeks to 2 years and then a separate centre from 2 to 6 years.

At the Nursery (6 weeks to 2 years) we have developed a centre with a homely feel with only 24 children a day permitted. The centre has 3 rooms of a maximum of 8 children in each room which enables our educators to focus their attention on a small group. We feel large groups for children under 2 years is not the ideal, caring environment that this age group needs.

In our Early Learning Centre we have designed an environment for our older children with our natural environment. Our owners love to get their hands dirty and build new imaginative experiences to keep the children guessing. Our centre also focuses on education enabling the children to develop and ensure they are ready for big school.
