There has been a nursery operating from Newchurch Parish Hall for around 50 years, with Newchurch Pre-School becoming a limited company 13 years ago. This 26-place nursery is an integral part of the local community and offers a personable experience for the 2-4 year old children who attend.

The nursery is operated from two spacious playrooms with access to a sufficiently sized outdoor play area, as well as toilets and a kitchen. All fixtures and fittings are owned outright by our clients and will be included in the sale.

Currently providing day care facilities from 9.00am until 12.00pm Monday to Friday, there is an opportunity for the potential new owner to extend these hours further.

Whilst the current owners oversee the day to day running of the nursery and look after financial affairs, there is a full-time longstanding deputy manager in place and two other part-time members of staff.

Sofia Beck, Childcare Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Manchester office, who is handling the sale comments: “Newchurch Pre-School offers an excellent opportunity for a first time buyer looking to enter the childcare sector with experienced staff and an established business already in place. The nursery has a warming and energetic feel and it’s clear to see how happy the children are.”

“There are numerous factors currently influencing the childcare sector including the proposal for additional free childcare and the impact of the National Living Wage. Christie & Co is well placed to provide advice to operators in this exciting time for the industry.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers around £39,995 for the leasehold interest.
