UK: Kids Planet acquires six-setting Lancashire nursery group
Nursery group Kids Planet has purchased six nursery settings located in the Fylde Coast in Lancashire, comprising Poulton Nursery & Forest School, Victoria Hospital Nursery, Kidspace Nursery, The Learning Lodge Nursery, Ansdell Nature Nursery, and Kidspace out-of-school and holiday club.
The group has a combined capacity for 535 children aged between newborn and eight years old.
The vendors are a husband and wife team who requested no publicity.
The sale was facilitated by commercial real estate agency Redwoods Dowling Kerr, whose senior childcare broker Sarah Ellison said: “It has been a pleasure working with the founders and assisting them with their retirement from the childcare sector. After 23 years they felt the right buyers for them were Kids Planet Day Nurseries.”
The acquisition takes Kids Planet’s total number of settings to 120.
