Goldsmith Day Nursery sold to Family Operator

With a long and illustrious trading history, Goldsmith Day Nursery has cultivated a strong reputation for childcare within the local community. Operating in the popular seafront resort of Southsea, Portsmouth, the nursery is strategically located to prove highly convenient for parents from the surrounding densely populated residential area, as well as commuters to the neighbouring towns and cities. Lying directly across from Milton Park and within a short walking distance of several local amenities, the setting enjoys great access to the community.

Situated in a spacious three-storey semi-detached property, the setting offers a highly versatile nursery accommodation with a warm and welcoming environment. Childcare is delivered across the ground and first floor of the property with numerous brightly decorated principal rooms providing an abundance of stimulating educational activities.

The nursery has the capacity to offer an exemplary fulltime childcare provision and holiday club for 42 children from three months to 8 years of age, open 51 weeks of the year.

Seeking retirement, Karen Miller decided now was the perfect time to commence the sale of Goldsmith Day Nursery and formally appointed Redwoods Dowling Kerr to place the business onto the market. After a comprehensive marketing campaign that garnered numerous offers, the nursery was sold to a family run operator pursuing acquisition opportunities to expand their nursery group.

 The vendor commented;

“My experience with RDK has been fantastic. Karrina and Sarah have been brilliant throughout the process. They advised me throughout the process and kept the sale moving at a fast pace. The level of service is very good, they are with you every step of the way. It is a fantastic feeling to have now completed.  Thank you so much for your help and support through the sale and pushing it through to meet the deadline.”

The buyer commented;

I would just like to say thank you for your hard work and always being available to chase up any issues that the process throws up. You have been attentive and always happy to help! We are extremely happy to have completed on the purchase and looking forward to the new challenge ahead of us. We would definitely recommend RDK to others and maybe we will be back ourselves one day in the future.

Lead Negotiator Sarah Ellison commented;

“It has been a pleasure working with Karen to help her achieve her retirement plan, the sale went through swiftly in just 8 weeks. We would like to wish the buyers all the best with their new nursery acquisition and their future plan now they have expanded their nursery portfolio.”
