Parent Reviews


We are very proud of the wonderful reviews parents have submitted about our nursery.  Visit our Day Nurseries page to read more reviews and ratings.

My little girl loves this nursery and has come on leaps and bounds since going. She only goes twice a week but she always seems to have fun and I have noticed a vast improvement in her speech, motor skills and confidence, which I believe is in part due to her attending this nursery. The staff are very caring towards the kids and clearly have a great bond with them all, which is reassuring to know that your child is in safe hands. Would highly recommend this nursery and will continue to keep my little girl here until she starts school!

My daughter has just recently started at Happitots and loves it. She gets excited every morning going to nursery and likes all the nursery staff they are kind and friendly and always keep me updated on what’s going on.

This is an amazing nursery. My son goes here 4 days a week and loves it and my older son attended this nursery a few years ago and he loved it too. The staff are great. Always got activities on and the menus are great.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being our support for the last 7 years. You are all amazing and words cannot describe how much we will miss you all.

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.
