The current owner of Stepping Stones Day Nursery in Waingate is planning to retire and is looking for a buyer for the nursery. The setting is currently up for sale at a price of £750,000.
The nursery is a two-storey detached building and has an outdoor play area. The property also has a four-bed detached house, which is currently the owner’s accommodation. There is also a garden at the rear of the house.
A spokesperson for Christie & Co said: “This exceptional business was established by our client over 40 years ago, starting off as a child-minding service and growing organically into this well-renowned and popular children’s day nursery. Our client has now taken the decision to pursue her retirement.”
The nursery can accommodate up to 40 children aged up to five years.
Sofia Beck, childcare business agent at Christie & Co in Manchester, has said the property will appeal to those with existing nurseries and those who want to enter the sector.
She said: “There is huge scope and potential for a new owner as the area is currently undergoing redevelopment with hundreds of new homes being built in close proximity to the nursery.”
