The nursery, which is located in Atherton, Greater Manchester has an effective operating capacity for 97 children and has been sold on a freehold basis to expanding regional group operator, Just Childcare Ltd.
The now previous owners, Mr & Mrs Farrell established the business in 2002, building the business organically and implementing a strong and consistent local reputation for providing first class childcare for the large numbers of children that attended this popular setting.

It is complimented by a spacious outdoor activity area for all the children to enjoy.
