Milky Way Day Nursery Sold by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Founded over 15 years ago, Milky Way Day Nursery has earned itself an excellent reputation amongst parents from the nearby residential area, as well as those commuting into Leicester city centre from the surrounding towns and villages, with credit to the abundance of public transport connections and the close by A6.

Operating from an imposing three-storey detached property, the setting is generously equipped and thoughtfully decorated to provide children with a safe and comfortable environment to learn and grow. Across the ground and first floor lie several principal rooms, including a messy play area, each colourfully adorned with bright displays and stimulating learning resources. To the rear of the property lies a well-resourced secure outdoor play area, offering a wealth of unique learning environments.

The nursery has the capacity to offer its childcare provision to children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age, delivered by an experienced manager and a complement of highly qualified care staff.

Wishing to enter retirement Audra Taylor made the difficult decision to place Milky Way Day Nursery onto the market and formally instructed Redwoods Dowling Kerr to conduct the sale. After a comprehensive marketing campaign, the nursery ultimately sold to a local family run operator with multiple settings, looking to further expand their geographical presence.

The vendor commented;

“My experience of RDK has been good, they have been professional and helpful from the start. I personally have liked the fact that you get allocated a personal sales negotiator. Mine was Kim Emsley, who is just amazing and throughout this process has both been supportive and extremely helpful. She is a definite asset to the company and has made the whole experience so much easier. She is always available to talk things through and chase things when necessary. Her standard of work is fantastic, and she follows up on everything. The level of service has been fantastic. I would recommend RDK.”

The Buyer commented;

“My experience with Redwoods Dowling Kerr was very good, as it always is. All the staff are very efficient, and I dealt a lot with Kim as she was the negotiator for the business, who was the very same and I would recommend. Any queries I had were handled very quickly and Kim did also chase me when needed and reminded me regularly which I did appreciate, and it helped the deal move forwards. From the team, a brilliant service, I cannot complain, and more than happy with the level of service I received throughout. On completion, it was a great relief to get it through after everything and now we are excited to be able to move forward. I was glad when I was able to liaise with the vendor as well and feel delighted. We have settled in nicely with the staff, working well, all of the staff are lovely. I would happily recommend RDK and would just like to add that I so far have only ever bought through RDK, I currently have five settings and all of those were bought with Redwoods. The future looks exciting.”

 Lead Negotiator Kim Emsley commented;

“It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Audra throughout. It is a good feeling when a client has the confidence to just pick up the phone to you whether it be to sort an issue, discuss an update or just for a general chat. I am glad Audra was able to do that. I feel we have been through the journey together from the start. Audra absolutely has earned a rest now, maybe even book a holiday that she is able to stay the full duration for! I am really pleased for the buyer and his family to have acquired another top-quality setting which I have no doubt he will continue to grow in the future. I wish him every success and would like to wish Audra the best of luck for her future also.”
