Our 25th birthday celebrations….

On Monday we celebrated our 25th birthday at Mulberry Corner.  When we opened in 1992, we were the very first day nursery in the whole of the Test Valley area.  25 years later, we are still going strong, with two extensions to the nursery building, two ratings of outstanding by Ofsted and lots of new projects underway, including our new Forest School programme.

To help us celebrate, we invited Miller’s Ark to come and see us with their mobile farm.  The children were lucky enough to meet kuni-kuni pigs, two Mediterranean miniature donkeys, some African pygmy goats, two large Oxford Downs sheep, white Indian runner ducks, chickens, guinea pigs and a floppy eared bunny.

Janine baked us a delicious rainbow birthday cake, decorated with a Mulberry tree and we all sang happy birthday to the nursery.  We even had a visit from our friends at the Daily Echo!  Here are a few photos of our birthday celebrations:
