Mulberry Corner Day Care Nursery
Learning through play


Exterior of Nursery

Mulberry Corner Day Care Nursery opened in 1992 and was the first nursery to open in the Test Valley area.  We have grown in size over the years and opened our purpose built pre-school unit, known as The Pips, in September 1997.  We are a 50 place day nursery, catering for children from 18 months until they start school. 

The nursery is inspected by OFSTED.  In our most recent inspection (February 2010) the nursery was judged to be outstanding in every area, the highest score available.  To view a full copy of our OFSTED report, please go to the "Links" page of this website. 

OFSTED described the care given at Mulberry Corner as follows:

"Children''s uniqueness is valued as they thrive and flourish in the extremely inclusive and child-centred environment.  High quality resources, stimulating activities and well planned play opportunities ensure that children are extremely motivated in all areas of their learning.  Skilled staff work closely with parents and other early years professionals to ensure children make rapid progress in their learning and development."

The nursery is situated on a quiet road on the outskirts of Chandlers Ford.  We have excellent outside facilities with a large secure garden, an all-weather surface, two decking areas and a large grass area.  The nursery building is light and airy and includes a large, purpose built conservatory.

Denise Barry, the owner of the nursery, works on site every day.  All of our staff are fully trained and a number have been working with us for over 10 years.  As a result the nursery care is consistent and there is a welcoming, calm feel.

Although you will find lots of information on our website, there is no substitute for looking around the nursery yourself.  If you are interested in sending your child to Mulberry Corner and would like to arrange a visit, please call us on 02380 255170 or email
