Nelly’s Day Nursery sold to family-run operators

Redwoods Dowling Kerr is delighted to announce the successful sale of Nelly’s Day Nursery, based in Staffordshire.

Since its inception, the impressive nursery has established a renowned reputation across its region and was graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted when last inspected.

Registered for 46 children aged 0-5, the nursery provides excellent quality of care and there is an experienced management team in place, with an array of long-standing, qualified staff members, a key factor to the on-going success and reputation.

The nursery is situated close to the M6 and is accessible for children from the immediate locality, neighbouring towns and villages, proving popular with parents who travel en-route to their workplace.

The vendor, Karen Laycock, sold Turtles Nursery through Redwoods Dowling Kerr in 2014 and made the difficult decision to place Nelly’s Day Nursery on the market to fulfil her retirement plans. After a comprehensive marketing campaign, Redwoods Dowling Kerr presented the Company with several viewings along with two offers.

The business sold to family-run operators who have bought five nurseries previously through Redwoods Dowling Kerr.

The buyers emphasised that the Company’s well-established operations and market-leading reputation was a strong factor in making the purchase.

Senior Sales Negotiator, Sarah Ellison, said: “It has been a pleasure working with Karen again after selling her first nursery in 2014. This is Karen’s final setting so now she can look forward to a well-deserved retirement after over 15 years in childcare.

“The nursery was sold to an expanding family-run operator, who have bought several nurseries through Redwoods Dowling Kerr.

“We would like to wish them all the best with their new acquisition and look forward to working with them in the future.”
