NurseryWe have a full time teacher led Nursery; The Mulberry Bush with experienced staff who provide a warm and caring environment. The Mulberry Bush nursery offers additional hours beyond those that are government funded at a very competitive rate.

The foundation stage will be the first important experience of school for children and therefore we are passionate about ensuring they feel safe, happy and have the best start. Our environment is maintained to a high standard both inside and outside, with lots of exciting opportunities to support learning and develop skills through engaging and creative play.
