Welcome to Enchanted Forest Early Learning, where we provide award winning early learning and childcare at carefully selected locations across the West of Scotland. It is important that children feel comfortable in their nursery and as such, our staff are trained to comfort children, to offer them endless cuddles and surround them with the security of a loving nursery environment which becomes an extension to their home.
Named ‘Nursery Group of the Year’ in September 2016 at the Nursery Management Today Awards, we are in our eleventh year. Our first nursery opened in Erskine in 2006, allowing us wealth of experience in providing the very best in early learning and childcare for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. Our commitment to going above and beyond for our children, families and staff has seen the Enchanted Forest offering grow throughout the years. We now have high quality nurseries in Erskine, Thornliebank, Greenock, Inverkip and Robroyston where children are inspired to grow and learn in a safe and nurturing nursery environment.
At Enchanted Forest we focus on enabling children to become leaders of their own learning, supporting staff in achieving their goals and fully involving families in ensuring their nursery is the best nursery.
We follow the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’, ‘Pre-Birth to Three’ and ‘Building The Ambition’ which enables us to provide best practice learning experiences and opportunities whilst supporting children at age and stage of their developmental journey.

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.
