This month, Happitots Nursery Cumbernauld has some amazing news. We have been named as one of the best nurseries in Scotland by DayNurseries.co.uk. That’s right, one of the best nurseries across the whole of Scotland! We have been ranked one of the top 20 nurseries, and are absolutely delighted by this prestigious recognition.
DayNurseries.co.uk, a UK leading nursery review website, has judged nurseries across Scotland based on the reviews and feedback directly from families. Taking into account a range of factors – including the outdoor space, learning opportunities, resources, cleanliness, care from adults, food and nutrition, activities provided for the children and overall management of the nursery – DayNurseries.co.uk conducted thorough research before announcing the winners. Achieving an ‘excellent’ standard from almost all our reviews, Happitots Nursery Cumbernauld has been recognised for our superb provision, holistic care and dedicated staff.
This is not the first time we have been identified as one of the highest ranking nurseries in Scotland. Happitots Nursery Cumbernauld has been in the top 20 for an astounding three years in a row! To maintain such high standards for so many years is an extra special achievement, but we would expect nothing less from our Happitots nurseries.
We have taken some of our favourite reviews, written by our families, which illustrate just how fabulous our Happitots Nursery Cumbernauld really is.
My son has attended the nursery since he was 8 and a half months. He loves it here and all the staff are lovely. Nothing is too much bother for them. The nursery has had a recent refurbishment and it looks fresh and clean. There are lots of new activities and my son loves attending.

Both my children have and go to this nursery, the teachers are amazing with the kids and help to encourage the kids in all their needs. They are extremely approachable if you need anything and are excellent in keeping parents informed with all that’s going on in the nursery and with your child’s development.I am extremely happy with Happitots and so is my child.

A few shout-outs are well deserved, as none of this would be possible without our hard working staff in the nursery. Kathryn, Julie and all the staff in Cumbernauld are truly fantastic. We can’t thank you enough for the amazing work you do for our little ones, and are so proud you are being nationally recognised for it!
And of course a very big thank you to our families who take the time to write us such lovely reviews. We love hearing your feedback and knowing how well your child is getting on in our nurseries. It is great to know that our nurseries are loved by children and families alike.
In other good news, our partner nurseries Oranges and Lemons in Dundee were also ranked in the top twenty nurseries across Scotland. You must be so proud as well! Congratulations Oranges and Lemons!

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:
