Nursery group Family First has acquired Drayton House Nursery School in Guildford, Surrey, a 65-place day nursery catering to children aged six months to five years.
The nursery was founded in 1943 and the current owner, Jennifer Tyson-Jones, took over the business in 1984 and after owning the business for 38 years has decided to sell for an undisclosed price.
Business property advisor Christie & Co facilitated the sale.
Sophie Willcox, director – childcare and education at Christie & Co said: “Drayton House is a unique and special nursery situated in a stunning property. Family First was the right buyer to carry on Jenny and her mother’s legacy and I wish them all the best for the future. This is yet another example of the demand for good quality nurseries that have recovered to pre-Covid levels.”
Legal advice for the vendor was provided Cripps Pemberton Greenish, and the buyer used Harrison Clark Rickerbys.
