Elan Nurseries is an established childcare group, consisting of three impressive settings which are renowned within the surrounding area for offering exceptional childcare. Established in 2005 the owners have grown the business steadily over the past 13 years, now providing care for up to 215 children in and around the desirable commuter area of Haywards Heath and Steyning. 

The nurseries have been acquired by Cranbrook Nurseries, who operate a nursery in Horsham, West Sussex, and the addition of the Elan group provides a strong cluster presence of high quality nurseries across the county.  

Sophie Willcox, Childcare Business Agent at Christie & Co, who handled the sale along with Nick Brown Head of Brokerage comments, “It has been a pleasure working with the owners of Elan Nurseries. This opportunity generated interest from both UK and international operators, resulting in numerous bids being received from a very competitive process, with an exceptional price ultimately achieved. This is just another example showing that the market is very buoyant for settings of the highest quality in the right locations.”
