Parent Reviews

Chloe, M

I was nervous leaving my son for the first time when returning to work. However, the staff at Happitots put me at ease. Settling in days were offered which helped ease him in gently. The staff are friendly and reassuring. You can see how warm they are with all of the children and you can call in anytime without feeling like you’re pestering!

Cheryl, M

Very friendly staff. My daughter has been with Happitots Glasgow Airport for nearly two years now, and I am extremely happy with the care they’ve provided.

Annette, M

My daughter (15 months) has been at the nursery since she was 8 months old. She loves her time here, and settled in smoothly since day 1. The staff are friendly, and always put the children first. I work shifts, and the nursery offer a level of flexibility that you don’t find at other nurseries.

Outdoors and Nature

We love to get outside at Happitots! We have a well-resourced and extensive outdoor area for all our children to use! Our nursery has a variety of quality outdoor equipment including climbing frames, wooden stumps, slides and even our very own wooden ship!

As well as access to our fabulous outdoor play areas, children of all ages enjoy regular walks in the local area. Our favourite place to visit is the Nature Trail where we can have picnics or go plane watching! We use Walkodile Child Safety Systems and high visibility vests to keep children safe when out on trips away from the nursery.

We are committed to being an environmentally friendly nursery, making changes wherever we can in order to make the world a cleaner place! We are a registered ECO-Nursery and are committed to teach our children about their environment and the effect we have on it in our day to day lives.
