Highly recommended. My little boy took a while than longer to settle in but all the staff were amazing with him and made sure he had his comforts to help him along a little. He has become more confident in himself, saying more words each week he's in, having his own little character now hearing what he's been up to in his group each time.
Staff are all welcoming and very friendly. The kids are always up to something fun, beach parties, teddy bear picnics etc.
Overall a brilliant nursery and can't thank the staff enough.

Happitots Nursery is a wonderful nursery with a nurturing environment and wealth of resources. My child's recent key worker was an excellent example of professionalism and acted in an attentive and caring manner towards him. It is so reassuring to hear details about his day, indicating how much of an individual he is treated as. Happitots is led by a superb manager who takes the time to talk to children and parents with genuine interest and is incredibly accommodating with special requests.

I would recommend Bishopbriggs to anyone who is looking for first class care for their children. The whole team are fantastic. You are always welcomed with a smile. All the staff have a caring nature and you can tell they love their job.

So pleased I chose Happitots for my daughter. The staff are fabulous, my little one has settled in so well, it's like her 2nd home! Play equipment constantly updated to keep them engaged and entertained, themed days to provide variety. Can't speak highly enough of everyone!

My little girl transferred to this nursery in February when we moved to the area. She has settled in well and really enjoys her days at Happitots. The staff have been excellent in helping her settle in and I am extremely happy with the level of care which she receives.

I think Happitots Bishopbriggs is a great nursery. My little girl has come on a lot since she started. The staff are brilliant with her and keep me up to date with anything that happens with her and anything that's happening within the nursery. They always have fun activities and they are outdoors all the time which I know my little girl loves. I am really happy I chose Happitots Bishopbriggs. It really is a great nursery.

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.
