Our Nursery

Here at Holyrood Shaw we offer quality Childcare and Early Education for children from 12 weeks to 5 years of age. We are located on Milnrow Road, very near the centre of Shaw. With convenient links to public transport and our own car park with space for drop off and collection, we are a convenient choice for families living and working in the local area. Find us.

Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. We pride ourselves on offering children a wide range of activities and all of our children have access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning experiences across all areas of the curriculum. 

Our nursery has been an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Shaw for over a decade and has developed a strong reputation for delivering quality and meeting the needs of individual children and their families.

We accept all childcare vouchers and offer 2-5 year old funding. Our spaces can fill very fast so we do recommend you enquire as early as possible to ensure you get the sessions and start date you require.

To get a real feel for our nursery, we would highly recommend coming to visit our nursery and see for yourself! Our Nursery Manager would be delighted to give you a guided tour, introduce you to our staff and answer any questions you may have. If you would be interested in arranging a viewing, simply call us on 01706 847 711 or complete our book a viewing form to confirm your viewing.

“Great staff! I feel happy leaving my child there knowing she has plenty of fun! They are more then excellent and if there are any concerns they are dealt with promptly.”Heather, Day Nurseries Review

“Fantastic nursery. Son's in the baby room, staff have gone above and beyond helping keep his eczema under control and accommodating his allergy to milk. Staff all super friendly and professional makes working so much easier when I am in work knowing my son is being very well looked after. The staff treat him like their own child. My son is treated as an individual, not just a number.” – Gill, Day Nurseries Review

“Holyrood Shaw is a brilliant nursery. They are always friendly, polite and flexible. My son loves it here and so do I. If ever I've had a problem/concern the manager addresses it straight away. My son has learnt so much at this nursery and he's blossomed here. I have even recommended the nursery to my friend who also takes her son here and she loves it too.” - Hannah, Day Nurseries Review

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.
