top nursery in scotland

This month, Happitots Nursery Baillieston has some amazing news. We have been named as one of the best nurseries in Scotland by DayNurseries.co.uk. That’s right, one of the best nurseries across the whole of Scotland! We have been ranked one of the top 20 nurseries, and are absolutely delighted by this prestigious recognition.

DayNurseries.co.uk, a UK leading nursery review website, has judged nurseries across Scotland based on the reviews and feedback directly from families. Taking into account a range of factors – including the outdoor space, learning opportunities, resources, cleanliness, care from adults, food and nutrition, activities provided for the children and overall management of the nursery – DayNurseries.co.uk conducted thorough research before announcing the winners. Achieving an ‘excellent’ standard from almost all our reviews, Happitots Nursery Baillieston has been recognised for our superb provision, holistic care and dedicated staff.

This is not the first time we have been identified as one of the highest ranking nurseries in Scotland. Happitots Nursery Baillieston has been in the top 20 for an astounding three years in a row! To maintain such high standards for so many years is an extra special achievement, but we would expect nothing less from our Happitots nurseries.

We have taken some of our favourite reviews, written by our families, which illustrate just how fabulous our Happitots Nursery Baillieston really is.

 

My daughter has been attending this nursery for the last 2 years and I couldn’t be more happier with her development. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. My daughter loved going to nursery and always appears happy and content when she gets picked up to go home. I would highly recommend this
nursery.

My 18-month-old son has been at Happitots Day Nursery Baillieston for 3 months now in the baby room and he’s come on in leaps and bounds. I’ve seen such a big change in the things he is able to do, including singing along to songs and doing the actions. The girls are obviously spending quality time
with him on his development and it shows. He’s settled in brilliantly and we feel so comfortable leaving him in their care. Would highly recommend to anyone, it really is such a fantastic nursery.

A few shout-outs are well deserved, as none of this would be possible without our hard working staff in the nursery. Wilma, Lisa and all the staff in Baillieston are truly fantastic. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing work you do for our little ones, and are so proud you are being nationally recognised for it!

And of course a very big thank you to our families who take the time to write us such lovely reviews. We love hearing your feedback and knowing how well your child is getting on in our nurseries. It is great to know that our nurseries are loved by children and families alike.

In other good news, our partner nurseries Oranges and Lemons in Dundee were also ranked in the top twenty nurseries across Scotland. You must be so proud as well! Congratulations Oranges and Lemons!

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.
