About the employer

The Mulberry Bush is continuing to go from strength to strength! In 2016 our original Locks Heath nursery underwent a huge transformation with the construction of a whole first floor extension. This doubled the space available to the Elderberries (3-5yrs) and Raspberries (2-3yrs). The new rooms were beautifully designed to provide wonderful additional spaces for both age groups, full of natural light. This also enabled us to provide bespoke sensory rooms for each age group for their sole use.
