Pam Peterson : Operations Manager

Pam has been actively involved in running early education and care settings for the better part of 30 years and has since partnered with her son Andrew and daughter in law Monique, to create the two services that make up our Mulberry Cottage community. Pam prides her business in being the most safe, flexible and welcoming environment for all families and continues to strive to build strong community connections having been in the local area for  almost twenty years.



Pam oversees the operation of both nursery and early learning centre, Rotating between both services and can be  found in the office or on the floor four days per week. Please don’t hesitate to see Pam if you have  any questions regarding your enrolment, fees, payment plans, concerns, complaints or to simply to have a chat (Pam is a remarkable listener).


As a Mother of five, Nanna of nine and great Nanna of three , Pam understands families and children like no other and will always considerately address and of your questions or concerns and resolve them as promptly as possible for you.

Andrew and Monique Peterson : Approved Providers and office administration

Prior to forging a partnership with Pam, Andrew and Monique had previously owned and operated a successful and well established long day care service in regional NSW. Based in Sydney, Andrew and Monique do a lot behind the scenes and we don’t always get to see them (however, if you are wondering who plays Santa and the Easter bunny each year– please stop and say hi!).

In the background, most weekends are spent driving up from Sydney to build, paint and renovate the services to maintain the lovely environments that have been created. As well as many if the administrative tasks that keep our service running as smoothly as possible. You might be noticing additional resources such as the lovely hand made natural elements you see popping up such as our tee pees, wooden bridge work, wall facades, outside art space and our dirt pit excavation area – as a family owned and operated service, you will certainly get the sense of community and connections within Mulberry Cottage.
