We celebrate playfulness, healthy choices and the individuality of every child.   

The Holyrood approach to childcare is built around the belief that play and playfulness provides the best foundations for early development and learning. Play is a means for children to establish, practise and test what they know, as well as to make sense of what is new. Our skilled Early Years Practitioners support children by scaffolding and extending the developments they make through child-led play and encourage them to explore their natural curiosity.

Fresh and nutritious meals, plenty of fun physical activities and the support of enthusiastic and nurturing staff are key to enabling happy and healthy children to grow at Holyrood Nurseries. We also celebrate every child’s unique personality and abilities and create learning environments which support their individuality and independence. 




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.
