The Mulberry Tree is a small, home from home childminder setting in Cranbrook, near Exeter. We love to get messy, play outdoors, and use lots of natural, open-ended resources to ignite imaginations. We know that you want to leave your child somewhere they will be loved, be able to explore as freely as possible, play and enjoy themselves; so that is what we aim to create! We don't want to do lots of tick-box and heavily adult-led activities; it's about the process, those engaging moments when we know the little light bulb is going off in their head and they are learning. We also know that they can only do this if they feel safe, loved, and well cared for, so we ensure all of our children feel at home in our setting above all else. So come and enjoy baking, yoga, craft, messy play and most importantly, have FUN with us!
