Our Nursery


Here at Happitots Baillieston we provide stimulating and inspiring Childcare and Early Education for children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age.  In close proximity to the motorway network and public transport services, our nursery is a perfect choice for commuters. Housed in a stunning detached stone villa within spacious grounds with a separate purpose-built baby unit you can find us here.

Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. We pride ourselves on offering children a wide range of activities and all of our children have access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning experiences across of all areas of the curriculum.

Our nursery has been an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Glasgow for over a decade and has developed a strong reputation for delivering quality and meeting the needs of individual children and their families.

We accept all childcare vouchers and offer 3-5 year old funding. Our spaces can fill very fast so we do recommend you enquire as early as possible to ensure you get the sessions and start date you require.

“The staff are very helpful and caring towards all of the children, my daughter included. Both of my children loved Happitots Baillieston, my daughter is very settled and happy there. The staff make her feel very welcome and she is always eager to come to nursery. I love how most of the girls have worked there for a long period of time and also looked after my son during his time at nursery. This shows the staff are happy and dedicated to their work and the children.” - Lynne, Day Nurseries Review

“I am a returning parent with a child, after my two eldest children, one of which is now in high school. I was delighted to hear that the same members of staff that cared and nurtured my eldest daughter are still there. An outstanding nursery with knowledgeable staff. I would highly recommend.” - Laura, Day Nurseries Review

“My Son has been attending Happitots in Baillieston since he was about 6 months old. Leaving your child in what is essentially a strange environment where you are both unfamiliar is daunting, to say the least. But the ladies within the nursery including the management made this transition for us somewhat easier. What I love is that from a very young age he would come home singing a new song or doing something that I knew I hadn’t taught him. This reassured me that the ladies were interacting with him. The ladies genuinely care about the kids well-being and even called when my son was off for a while, to see how he was doing. I would and have highly recommended this nursery to friends.” - Heather, Day Nurseries Review
