Childcare Derbyshire - Mulberry Bush Nursery


The Mulberry Bush Day Nursery was opened in Ashbourne in February 1990. We provide fun, friendly and stimulating childcare and education for children aged 0-12 years old in Derbyshire. We aim to further your child’s development along with providing them with a safe and secure environment in which to play and learn.

Day Nursery

The day nursery is divided into age-specific units, where children of a similar age are cared for together.

A Typical Day at Our Day Nursery

The day is organised to meet the needs of each child, with childcare routines highly flexible. Each of the children in our care has a key worker, who works closely with the child and parents to ensure continuous updates regarding progress and achievements.

Health and safety are more than just words with Mulberry Bush. Our team is highly trained, professional and fully Police and CRB/DBS checked. Our day nursery is key fob secured and CCTV monitored, to ensure peace of mind for all of our parents and carers that their children are in safe hands.

At Mulberry Bush we also run out of school, breakfast and holiday clubs for 4-12 year olds from purpose-built premises in the grounds of our nursery.

These clubs are run by qualified and experienced staff who are fully trained in working with older children.
