Our Rooms

Nursery Playrooms

Our Nursery Playrooms cater for children from birth - 5 years of age. We have our Baby Room (0-2 years), our Toddler Room (2-3 years) and our Preschool Room (3-5 years). We also benefit from an extensive outdoor area.

We offer FREE Settling in Sessions and will discuss any room transitions with you in advance. We understand every child is unique and we will ensure they progress through our playrooms at a time that is right for them. 

Our Staff:Child Ratio; 0-2'S (1:3), 2-3's (1:4), 3-5's (1:8). *Minimum number in accordance with current Ofsted regulations. Where possible these will be lower.

Outdoor Play

We love to get outside at Holyrood Prestwich where we have a large outdoor area which is equipped with a variety of bespoke play equipment including a play castle, mud kitchen, planting area and large sit-in sand pit, allowing outdoor learning to take place across all areas of the curriculum. Our children make full use of their outdoor area as well as regular trips out in their local community.  To keep up to date with our recent adventures, follow us on Facebook for more regular updates. 

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.
