Christie & Co brokers Yellow Brick Group deal

Christie & Co, the specialist business property adviser, is delighted to announce the sale of Yellow Brick Nursery Group.


The popular childcare group, which boasts four impressive leasehold childcare settings across Berkshire, has been acquired by regional operator Complete Childcare.

Established originally in1989  by a group of teachers for their own children, the group has gone from strength to strength under the ownership and guidance of Charlotte Wilkinson, one of the founders, and Diana Kilding who joined in 1992.

Yellow Brick Nurseries, which has nurseries in Wokingham, Finchampstead and Lower Earley, boasts an effective operating capacity for 214 children with the majority of the settings being graded ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

Nick Brown, Associate Director at Christie & Co brokered the sale and said, “It has been a pleasure dealing with both of the owners of this group and helping them towards their pending retirement.

“Over the years they have worked exceptionally hard to create a group of childcare settings which not only offer exceptional childcare but also have a reputation that is second to none and we are delighted to be able to complete on a highly confidential sale in such a short space of time.”

Charlotte Wilkinson of Yellow Brick Nursery Group added, “It was a difficult decision to sell as we have grown the nurseries over 27 years along with a dedicated staff team, but the time has come to retire. We wish all of the staff, parents and children the very best for the future and we believe they are in very good hands. We would also like to thank Christie & Co for their professionalism in the sale and their ability to maintain the necessary confidentiality."
