Boasting an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted rating, Newlands Nursery is located on Tower Lane in Fulwood, Preston and operates from an attractive, detached and extended three storey property with effective operating capacity for 72 children.



The impressive family run business was established by the previous owner in 1990. Passionate about childcare, the nursery has continued to thrive over the years under the ownership and management of her and her two daughters. The nursery has maintained consistently strong occupancy levels, benefitting from word of mouth referrals and repeat customers.

Claire Roberts, Chief Executive of Kids Planet comments, “We are thrilled to add Newlands as the 23rd Nursery to our group. We share the same ethos in terms of delivering high quality childcare and look forward to building on the already outstanding facilities.”

Sofia Beck, Christie & Co Childcare Business Agent comments, “It has been a pleasure working with both the sellers and the buyers throughout the sale of Newlands. I had no doubt that the nursery would attract immediate interest due to its impressive and consistent performance and reputation locally and with Oftsed.

“I am pleased that we were able to help achieve the sale price which the owners wanted for their cherished family business, and wish them all the best in the future.”
