Parent Reviews New

My girls love this nursery, especially the outdoor spaces so lots of room to play! The visit to Windmill Farm with the preschool was fab and the graduation ceremony for the children moving on was great. Lots of time and effort put in by the staff to orchestrate these events. Well done!

My daughter had her nursery graduation with a little sing song and presentation of an award. It was a lovely set up and the children did really well and listened and rehearsed so well for the day. Staff put together a lovely event with a compilation of nursery slides with past and present memories of play and learning and friendships formed. Lovely words spoken for each child as they proudly collected their certificates in the cap and gowns, a lovely memorable day for both children and parents. It also has to be said that the garden areas are spectacular.

Welcoming and smart staff. Nursery has been recently refurbished providing lots of outdoor space for the children and lots of modern interesting toys in the rooms. Staff in the rooms are friendly and helpful and are keen on updating you on your child’s progress.

My granddaughter has been attending Holyrood for the past 2 years, she has absolutely loved her time there and will be sad to leave when she goes to big school. The nursery facilities are fantastic and the garden offers my granddaughter a huge place to have fun with her friends. Staff and Management are wonderful and very accommodating and I would have no hesitation in recommending this nursery.

Dear families,

We are pleased to share with you our exciting plans for the future of our nurseries. Bertram Nursery Group has provided a trusted, caring and quality service to thousands of families over two decades.  That isn’t changing, but we want to grow and develop our services, facilities and, most of all, our teams who make our nurseries and kindergartens such inspiring places for children.

That’s why we’re changing our name to Thrive Childcare and Education, because that’s at the heart of what we’re about – helping our children, staff and communities to thrive.

While changing our company name and the names of some of our nurseries is the next step of our development journey, we’ll still have the same dedicated teams caring for your children.

The Covid-19 pandemic has reinforced our belief that we need to adapt and invest in a constantly changing world to continue providing the service that parents and children need, tailored to the communities we support across Scotland and North West England.

Since our foundation, we have acquired some fantastic groups of nurseries and many high-quality independent nurseries. Now we are uniting them under four Thrive groupings:

  • Happitots nurseries will extend beyond Glasgow and South Lanarkshire to provide a network of affordable, flexible nurseries across Scotland.
  • Holyrood nurseries will extend more widely across our network of affordable nurseries in North West England, recognising parents’ and community needs.
  • Corner House nurseries will now extend from Edinburgh to operate more widely across Scotland, providing an extensive range of exciting, extracurricular activities and large outdoor areas.
  • Nature Kindergartens, our new sub-group, will reflect our vision to develop children’s outdoor learning. We plan to expand our Nature Kindergartens network in Scotland and England because we believe children’s learning is greatly enhanced in natural spaces.
