It comes as owners, Bertram Nursery Group, relaunches as Thrive Childcare and Education.

Taking their feedback on board, Bertram used lockdown to review its services for children, parents and communities and consider how best to grow and develop in the years ahead.

It identified a clear need to continue investing in indoor and outdoor environments, in the technology used to help teams communicate with parents and in the teams themselves, who are at the heart of inspiring children to grow and develop.

Gary Rankin, chief executive officer, said: “Our commitment to putting children first and providing a safe and nurturing environment hasn’t changed, and never will.

“This is supported by investing in our teams, encouraging them to make early years education a rewarding career choice with prospects for development.

“We also recognise that children’s learning is enhanced in invigorating outdoor spaces and we are committed to investment in outdoor learning opportunities.

“We also know how important it is to provide a flexible service that meets parents’ needs, from opening hours and services for school-age children to opportunities for extra-curricular activities. “Above all, our nurseries are part of the local communities they serve and we recognise that one-size doesn’t fit all.”
