About Us

Vicky and Pari established Bertrum House Nursery in 2016 to provide a nurturing, exciting and ambitious environment for little ones.

Rooted in Community, Growing Together

We are really proud that Bertrum is one of a kind and are on site every day to ensure we get to know every one of the children and their families.

Bertrum has a very strong community ethos with both of our children having attended the nursery before moving on to local primary schools and we are always delighted that many families and extended families keep in touch with exciting news of their children.

Dynamic Learning, Joyful Discovery

Just as no two children are identical, we knew that we didn’t want any two years at Bertrum to be exactly alike. We have an annual calendar of treasured events but aside from that our class teams plan for their children a week at a time, which means they can follow the children’s interests to maximise their engagement and enjoyment. This spontaneity keeps our delivery of the curriculum fresh and vibrant – it contributes to the happy atmosphere that visitors to the nursery often comment upon.

Our staff team really is exceptional

We believe in finding the right people with great qualifications and work hard to ensure that our team grows with usWe consistently invest in training to ensure we really are an inclusive setting and that our team is well qualified to support the development of every child.

Nurturing Tomorrow’s Confident Learners

Our team of teachers and assistants are happy, enthusiastic and ambitious for each child and this impacts positively so our children leave to start their school lives as confident, intellectually curious learners.

Our facilities

No other local nursery enjoys facilities similar to ours: we have permanent, dedicated indoor space that we have developed specifically for our children.  No time is wasted packing away and the classrooms are displayed with the children’s colourful contributions.

The children have dedicated classrooms based on their age group which means our teachers can set up activities specifically targeted to their stage of learning and there is never any compromise on the learning experience.

Inside and Out: Nurturing Creativity and Confidence

Our hall space gives the children a communal indoor area where they can explore our indoor play equipment, share a dining hall experience over lunchtimes and enjoy peripatetic ballet and yoga lessons. Each term we use our stage for performances that bring together the Bertrum community and build the children’s confidence to perform.

The outdoor space is equally impressive; our private field includes a huge sandpit, mud kitchen, allotment, carpentry shed, nature area and lots of open space for the children to explore, play and find their voices. Outdoor learning is given equal weighting to the indoor provision and is an integral part of our curriculum.
