Our Nurseries

Welcome to Corner House Nurseries
We provide childcare and early education for children from 3 months to 5 years of age in the heart of Edinburgh

We are open Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm and are proud to be in partnership with Edinburgh City Council allowing us to offer pre school funding

Corner House Nurseries are established and trusted centres for early education. Fundamental to the success of any nursery is its staff and we pride ourselves in having built a staff team which is highly-motivated, well-qualified and experienced. Our staff turnover is one of the lowest in the country, helping ensure we deliver continuity of care as part of the overall nursery/child/parent relationship.

We highly recommend viewing our nurseries to get a real feel for Corner House nurseries, and what we can offer your family. Please call us on 0800111 4954 or contact us to arrange a visit.

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.
