Bizzy Bees Day Nursery sold to expanding nursery group

Originally founded in the early 1990’s and acquired by Ayelet Wellard in 2002, Bizzy Bees Day Nursery has earned itself an excellent reputation for being a premier childcare provider in Surrey. Situated in a deeply residential area of Worcester Park, the nursery is ideally located to attract families from the local area, as well as parents commuting from the surrounding towns and cities into London, with a nearby rail connection to Waterloo station.

Operating from a deceptively spacious single-storey property, the nursery setting has been perfectly equipped to offer children an abundance of learning resources and engaging activities to develop them into well-rounded individuals. Inside the building lies a main open plan classroom, a dedicated staff room, a domestic kitchen, and a children’s toilet block with nappy changing facilities. To the rear of the property lies a fully enclosed rear garden with ample play equipment suitable for children of all ages.

Offering an excellent childcare provision to children from 3 months to 5 years of age, Bizzy Bees Day Nursery can maintain its enviable reputation, thanks to the compassionate and long-serving team of staff, along with active hands-on involvement from the vendor.

Wishing to enter retirement, Ayelet made the challenging decision to sell the day nursery. Understandably wanting to achieve the greatest return for her years of hard work, she instructed market-leading childcare business broker Redwoods Dowling Kerr to facilitate the sale. After a comprehensive marketing campaign garnering a substantial amount of interest, Bizzy Bees Day Nursery ultimately sold to Little Garden Day Nurseries Limited, a quickly expanding nursery group in London.

The vendor Ayelet Wellard commented;

“Sarah, it is time to say thank you very much to you and Kim for a very efficient and friendly service. I enjoyed working with you and Kim. Despite the difficult time that all of us had experienced, you and Kim managed to work as efficient as always. You always kept me informed. Thank you very much.”

Lead Negotiator Kim Emsley commented;

“The seller has done an amazing job running Bizzy Bees for 18 years and in that time has built a fantastic nursery and reputation in the local area. It was a big decision when Mrs Wellard decide to sell and look to retire. It was fantastic she chose Redwoods Dowling Kerr and it has been a pleasure working with Mrs Wellard to help her achieve her retirement. The nursery was sold to Corporate operators Little Gardens Day Nursery Ltd, this will be a great addition to their group and expansion plans we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
