National nursery operator, All About Children has acquired Progress House Day Nursery in the Leicestershire town of Market Harborough.
Established more than 20 years ago, Progress House is a family-run day nursery with an operating capacity for up to 80 children aged from newborn to four years old. The nursery operates from a converted semi-detached property. The vendors are Julian and Linda Peach who are retiring.
All About Children now owns 38 settings.
Sinead Johnson, chief operating officer at All About Children, said: “Progress House has a lovely, homely atmosphere, delivering high-quality care to local families and is a great addition to the All About Children group. We’re excited to meet the team and work with them for many years to come, building on the exceptional reputation they already enjoy.”
Property advisor Christie & Co facilitated the sale. David Eaves, director – childcare & Education at Christie & Co, said: “As established group operators continue to expand out from their traditional geographical hubs, we anticipate increased demand all across the Midlands for both freehold and leasehold settings, creating tremendous opportunity for owners thinking of selling their nursery in the near future.”
