Previous owners, Sarah Swift and Cindy Edwards made the decision to retire from the business which they ran as a partnership for over 21 years under the Montessori model of education.
The 30-place nursery, which occupies a period property within the town centre, was bought by Rachael Emmett. Rachael left a career in Human Resources to retrain as a childcare provider and will continue to apply the Montessori approach, increasingly sought-after by parents, in the nursery.
Corrina Jones, specialist childcare Business Agent at Christie & Co comments, “Sarah and Cindy have been integral to the business for many years and as very involved owner-operators, they were very conscious of selling to the right candidate. We wish them an enjoyable retirement and believe that they have left their business in very safe hands. We also wish Rachael all the very best of luck in her new and exciting career.”
Christie & Co has seen a very busy start to 2016 in the childcare sector and in Q2 alone, has completed on more than £9.4m of nursery sales.
