Bo-Peep Nursery in Brook Green, West London

Bo-Peep is a family-owned Montessori nursery school that provides care for up to 20 children between the ages of two and five years. The business operates from the lower ground of a traditional Victorian property in West London with access to an outdoor play area.

The setting’s previous owner, Sammy Mackey, wanted to create a safe and fun environment that acted as an extension of the child’s home, where they are encouraged to develop their own creativity and individuality whilst having the best start in life and being prepared for their next chapter of school. Over the years, Bo-Peep has established a reputation for offering the very best quality childcare.

Sammy recently decided to sell to allow her to focus on other business ventures and to explore moving abroad with her family.

Following a confidential sales process with Sophie Willcox at Christie & Co, the setting has been purchased by the IMA group, a new entrant into the sector.   

Ishil Mehta, Managing Director of IMA group, comments, “IMA is a dynamic family office spanning sectors including real estate, e-commerce and, most recently, early years education and childcare. This is our second acquisition within the sector, and we are thrilled to have secured such a highly regarded and successful setting as our first nursery.

“Our passion is to ensure that every child at Bo-Peep continues to receive the highest quality care and education in a nurturing and stimulating environment. We are serious about creating a lasting legacy through Bo-Peep. We will provide our educators with best-in-class facilities and resources to help deliver our outstanding curriculum. Our goal within the sector is to strategically and discreetly acquire further settings with the distinguished help of Sophie at Christie & Co.”

Sophie Willcox, Director – Childcare & Education at Christie & Co, comments, “Sammy was a pleasure to work with and I wish her the very best in her next venture outside of the sector. I also wish Ishil and his team all the luck with Bo-Peep and I hope it continues to be the success it is now. Bo-Peep is a wonderful smaller nursery, which is the perfect fit for a first-time buyer.”

Bo-Peep Nursery was sold for an undisclosed price.
