Grandir UK

“to grow”

Hello! Welcome to Grandir UK. We’re the centre of a large family tree of over 80 nurseries based across the UK. Our name comes from the French word ‘grandir’ that means ‘to grow’ which inspires our key purpose and vision to grow and nurture our children, our people and our business.

Whichever nursery you choose for your little one, we work collaboratively with our families to ensure every single child in our care experiences the best start in life, encouraging them to flourish and grow to shape their future years.

  • We help prepare children for life with our educational programmes and our ME Model.
  • We recognise the clear link between well-qualified, enthusiastic staff and high-quality childcare.
  • Since 1998, we have grown to over 80 settings across the UK, with a wealth of experience in early years.
