We know that this announcement is just a tiny bit late but Happitots Nurseries & Out of School Care Centres are proudly announcing that we are on Instagram. We actively encourage parents to follow our page to be in touch with exciting news across our childcare centres, latest discounts and offers as well as follow a creative and educational path of their children.

We promise to be active on social media across the Happitots family in Bishopbriggs, Baillieston, Cumbernauld and Garrowhill.

Our Facebook page in Bishopbriggs is handled with care by our nursery team -  Jodi Byars, Emma McIntosh and Paula Wright. Please follow their efforts to support Cash for Kids in Clyde.

As everyone is happy to be followed on social media - just a wee announcement that we have limited spaces remaining until the start of Summer 2019. You can book a viewing of our nursery in Bishopbriggs by phone 0141 772 4708 or visit our book a viewing page for more details. We provide award-winning childcare service with beautiful gardens, nutritionally balanced menus and curriculum for early years education which is responsive to your child needs.

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.
