Welcoming new nurseries to Thrive Childcare and Education.

Welcoming New nurseries to Thrive Childcare and Education.

As a leading nursery and education provider, our goal is to continue the great work that we have been doing throughout Scotland and England with an aim to developing our brand’s reach. We intend to further our passion for childcare, our ethos and our provision of safe, nurturing and happy environments by acquiring new sites across the country.

We genuinely believe that high quality early years care and education can shape every child’s life in a positive way. We know childhood is a treasured time. We believe it is our responsibility to provide environments and experiences that capture the joys of childhood, nurture each child’s individual growth and development, and pave the way for success in school and life.

Thrive With Us

We offer a unique early education experience built on 20 years of expertise, and on what working families have told us they want and need for their children…and for themselves. Childcare and early education isn’t just what we do – it’s who we are.

Our growth ambitions are fuelled by our desire to provide early years care to as many children as possible and our mission is to be recognised as a local provider of choice.

We are currently Scotland’s largest childcare and education business, but we are looking to continue to grow our operations by acquiring high quality nursery settings that fit with our values.

We are lucky enough to be on a strong financial position as Apiary Capital, a renowned private equity firm, backed our vision and our team.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us for a confidential conversation if you are thinking of selling your nursery.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
