Our nursery is situated in the new Technology Park on Explorer Road in Dundee. We are close to Ninewells Hospital and with easy access from Kingsway. We benefit from a secure entry system, a large car park offering easy drop off and collection, an electric car charging point and even under floor heating throughout our nursery. Find Us

Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments.  Surrounding our nursery we have an extensive outdoor area and access to a variety of green spaces and parks only a short walk away.  We make the most of our fantastic surroundings and are regularly seen out and about in the local community.  

Our nursery is an established and respected Centre for Early Year's Care in Dundee 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 3-5 year old funding. Our spaces 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, and what we have to offer, we would highly recommend coming to visit us! Our Nursery Manager would be delighted to give you a guided tour, introduce you to the staff and answer any questions you may have.

Our Team

Our Nursery Manager, Nicola King, has over 22 years experience working in childcare. Our Deputy Manager, Karen Pinchbeck supports Nicola in ensuring our nursery provides a safe and stimulating learning environment for children to develop and thrive. 


“The staff and management at Oranges and Lemons Technology Park are second to none. Two of three of my children have attended here and my third is due to start. I have seen first hand the effort and care that they put into each child. My personal experience is that this has had an immeasurable positive impact on my children, in terms of developing their confidence as well as their emotional, social and academic development (…) I go to work safe in the knowledge that they are cared for, learning new skills and having fun at the same time. Thanks guys for all of your hard work!”

Outdoor Play

We love to get outside here at Technology Park where we are very fortunate to have an extensive outdoor area comprising of four large gardens and a unique secluded woodland area allowing for outdoor play in a natural environment.  This space offers multiple learning opportunities in a natural environment right on our door step which is unique to the city of Dundee. Our children have opportunities to participate in outdoor play experiences when they wish with our gardens easily accessible to all age groups. 

Weather does not limit our opportunities for outdoor learning so we ask parents to provide appropriate clothing so our children are always ready to explore all elements of nature.



SSSC Code of Practice

Our nursery was recently approached by the Scottish Social Services Council who requested us to take part in this promotion video to help demonstrate some of their Codes of Practice being put into action. Each section of the video has been linked to one of the codes to give people an insight into how each code links with the quality services we provide here at Oranges & Lemons. For more information regarding the SSSC Codes of Practice please click here.


Activities & Extras

We offer a range of unique activities to enrich every child's experience at nursery. Currently we offer; Therapony Visits, Dance Classes, a private Forest Area, and Nursery Animals so your child can play and learn whilst developing a sense of responsibility.

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.

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.
