National nursery provider Kids Planet has acquired The Owls Nursery in Bolton, Greater Manchester.
The Owls Nursery is a family-run day nursery which accommodates up to 120 children aged from newborn to five years old and operates from a former church school property in the town of Blackrod in Bolton.
The business has been owned and operated by David and Kay Holt since 2012.
David Holt said: “We are confident that Kids Planet will continue to provide the very highest standards of care and take the business from strength to strength.”
Kids Planet’s chief executive Clare Roberts commented: “This beautifully kept nursery, set in a historic building, is a true testament to all the staff and it is abundantly clear they have huge passion for providing a secure and enabling environment. Having been a family-run nursery themselves, their culture closely mirrors that of our own and I believe they will transition into Kids Planet perfectly, upholding our core values that underpin our quality provision.”
Specialist business property advisor Christie & Co facilitated the sale. Sofia Beck, director at Christie & Co, said: “The activity from buyers within the childcare sector continues to increase and we are seeing more offers being made than ever before.”
The Owls Nursery was sold for an undisclosed price.
