Our Nursery

Here at Holyrood Salford we offer quality Childcare and Early Education for children from birth to 5 years of age.  Our nursery is located in a striking Victorian property in the heart of Salford, with excellent links to public transport and ample parking for easy drop off and collection to make things easy for busy families. Find us here.

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 is an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Salford 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 0161 707 7731 or complete our book a viewing form to confirm your viewing.

"My daughter absolutely loves going to nursery. She is thriving and enjoys all the activities and daily structure. If I ask the team for any help with potty training or using creams etc., they are extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Holyrood." ~ Rachel, Parent - Day Nurseries Review

“Holyrood Salford is an amazing nursery, the girls are fantastic go above and beyond with the children there, both my girls have and do attend and absolutely love it. And I have full confidence in all the girls there to take good care of them and they do. Each and every staff member are lovely helpful and caring and are a credit to your company.”Casey, Facebook Review

“Staff are very friendly and supporting. I also have a good relationship with my child's key person - she's like part of the family. I am told by my child's key person how her day has gone from the minute I drop her off to the minute I pick her up. My child is always happy and talks about nursery at home which makes me feel like I am not missing out on her growing up.”Natasha, 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.
