Our Nursery

Here at Holyrood Hope we offer quality Childcare and Early Education for children from birth to 5 years of age. Our purpose-built nursery is exclusively dedicated to providing childcare for families who work for the NHS. Located opposite the Salford Royal Hospital, we offer flexible sessions to support irregular shift patterns and long days, giving you peace of mind that your child is in a safe and happy environment whilst you work. Find us here.

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! If you are employed by the NHS 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 778 7730 or complete our book a viewing form to confirm your viewing. 

Although our nursery is tailored for and exclusive to NHS staff only, we do have a sister nursery Holyrood Salford only 0.2 miles away who cater for local families seeking childcare.

Holyrood Nursery Hope Social Proof

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. As part of this rebrand Holyrood Nursery Hope is now called Holyrood Nursery Salford Royal

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.
