Popular East Yorkshire nursery sold to Muddy Boots Nursery Ltd

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of Kiddies Corner Day Nursery in East Riding, East Yorkshire.

Established in 2010, Kiddies Corner Day Nursery is a purpose-built children’s day nursery with a large outdoor play area to the rear of the property. The business is located in the residential village of East Riding in East Yorkshire, and benefits from its close proximity to major commuter routes. The setting sits in a densely populated residential area with easy access to both local amenities and public transport links.
The nursery was previously owned by Ms Catherine Hyde, and has been sold to Mr Andy and Mrs Anna Nimmo of Muddy Boots Nursery Ltd. This is the pair’s third setting in the Yorkshire area, their other businesses are located in Acomb and Poppleton.

Managing Director at Muddy Boots Nursery Ltd, Andy Nimmo, comments, “Muddy Boots really is a dream come true for us and we are so proud of our team and grateful to every family who entrust their child to us. We have a vision for dynamic, full of life, standard setting nurseries and this will help us expand our services to more families across York and the surrounding areas.

“We believe in the best for every child, and that every child should be given the opportunity to flourish into their full potential. The name ‘Muddy Boots’ really sums up our whole ethos – to not be afraid to let children learn by getting muddy, exploring, going on adventures, and getting out there and having a go!

“From the moment we stepped into Kiddies Corner, we felt that it would be a fantastic fit - it's a nursery that has so much potential, and we are absolutely thrilled to welcome the team into the family. We are planning on commencing an extensive refurb throughout, further investing into the site and the team as much as we can.”

Vicky Marsland, Senior Business Agent at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, comments, “This is a beautiful nursery and a perfect fit for the buyers as they continue to expand in the local area. The nursery is purpose-built with a spacious layout and exertive outside space, which fits in very well with Muddy Boots’ two existing settings in York.  It’s been a pleasure working with the operators in finding them the right buyer for their business and I wish Andy and Anna all the best in their future endeavours.

“Buyer demand is stronger than ever in the sector and, as more and more businesses bounce back to pre-COVID levels, we are seeing many operators resume their exit strategies after holding off on decision making over the past year.”

Kiddies Corner Day Nursery was sold for an undisclosed price.
