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 daughter has attended the nursery since she was 10 months old. Having moved through each of the rooms from babies to preschool. I cannot fault the nursery or staff. All staff are helpful and happy and seem to know my daughter very well. I'm very impressed with the new outdoor layout and she loves to run around especially checking the plants and bug houses. Any question I've had has always been answered quickly and clearly and my daughter always has a big smile on her face when I collect her.

My daughter has been at the nursery for almost a year now, I can't fault it. Staff are all enthusiastic and so helpful, they do lots of activities and have a great out door space. I am happy leaving her there knowing she is in safe hands.

Staff are committed, friendly, helpful and supportive. My son has great relationships there and feels incredibly secure and is very happy. He's made some great friendships, now eats a wide range of foods compared to when he started and his speech and understanding has come on in leaps and bounds. Plus the children are always doing fun activities!

Fantastic day nursery that suits our needs due to location and our shift patterns at work. We can book our son in whatever days we are working as long as we give a months’ notice. The facilities are great including great gardens where there are lots to amuse the kids. The lunches and snacks are excellent and sound so tasty! The staff are the best part about the nursery! Lots of friendly faces with the greatest abilities to deal with all age groups of children. We have had children at Happitots for 5 years and built up great relationships with many of them. Absolutely recommend this nursery.

I have had 2 girls come through Happitots Glasgow Airport with experience of the Tweenie Room, toddler room and preschool room. Have nothing but great things to say about all the staff, especially the manager. Now will be using again from Sep for my 3rd child.

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.
