The nurseries, located in the town centres of Beaconsfield and Marlow, have a combined effective operating capacity for 140 children and have been operated by the current owners since opening in 2003.
Christie & Co has helped expanding nursery group, ICP Nurseries, to acquire numerous settings throughout 2016 and this trend looks to continue into 2017 with further acquisitions in the pipeline.
Sophie Willcox, Business Agent at Christie & Co brokered the sale and comments, “The Childcare4u nurseries were of excellent quality and a perfect fit for ICP Nurseries. The vendor contacted Christie & Co after being approached by another operator to see if they would sell, we then introduced ICP Nurseries to the process and the deal was successfully completed in a short time scale.”
Tracey Storey, CEO ICP Nurseries, comments, “ICP Nurseries is building a premium nursery group in London and the South East. We are very excited to bring Childcare4u, with two excellent nurseries with strong focus on outstanding childcare, into the fold. Sophie Willcox and the team at Christie & Co were extremely supportive and helpful throughout the transaction ensuring a quick and seamless process.”
