The nursery had been run by Rachel Spanswick and her team of staff since 2006. Rachel, who has worked in the sector for over 30 years, decided to sell the nursery in order to retire and is now looking forward to spending more time in her seaside home in Devon.



Tim and Fran have run nurseries in both Australia and the UK and also own Little Angels Day Nursery in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. Daisychain Day Nursery is their second nursery in their UK portfolio and they are looking forward to driving the business forward.

Corrina Jones, Childcare Business Agent at Christie & Co handled the sale and comments, “Daisychain Day Nursery is a large setting in which we received extensive interest and were in receipt of two offers within weeks of marketing.

“The sale of the Daisychain Day Nursery illustrates that there is definite buyer appetite for large, high value and well-run settings in the Wiltshire area. We wish both the buyers and our clients the best of luck in the future.”
