Buckinghamshire-based nursery chain, Asquith Nurseries, has continued its growth by purchasing Kids 2 Us in Manchester.
The modern, state-of-the-art day nursery is located near Wigan and is currently owned by Aspall Property Group. The purpose-built setting offers 74 places to children aged 0-5.
The nursery is run by Samantha Evans, company director and nursery manager, who boasts 25 years’ experience in the early years sector.
Richard Higham, director of corporate finance at UHY Hacker Young Manchester, provided financial advice to Kids 2 Us and has said:
“Aspall Property Group has created a fantastic day nursery in Kids 2 Us.
“Since opening its doors in January 2014, the business has thrived under the directorship of Samantha Evans.
“The shareholders have chosen to sell the business to Asquith owing to the group’s strong values and the focus on their most important stakeholders – the children and their parents.”
Higham continued to say: “The children’s day nursery industry is currently rife with consolidation and therefore exceptional businesses like Kids 2 Us remain highly desirable to groups looking to acquire.”
