Snap4Kids in Cambridgeshire

Snap4Kids is a ‘Good’ rated day nursery setting with the capacity to care for up to 46 children aged nought to four years, offering a homely, caring environment within spacious rooms and access to considerable private outdoor space. It operates from an attractive bungalow-style property set back from the high street in the affluent south Cambridgeshire village of Hauxton.

The business was founded by Kenny Forrest and Janet Robertson in 2004 and was brought to market to allow the pair to focus on their other business interests.

Following a confidential sales process with David Eaves at Christie & Co, it has been purchased by Kindred Nurseries, taking the group to 37 settings.

Kenny Forrest and Janet Robertson, former owners of Snap4Kids, comment, “Having owned and developed the business over the past 20 years, it was always going to be a tricky decision to sell, and so we approached it with some trepidation. We had created a family business with a caring family feel, and it was important for us to have that ethos maintained. David Eaves at Christie & Co matched us with the ideal buyer in Kindred and we are sure the children, families, and staff will continue under their leadership to take every new opportunity for the whole setting to thrive.”

Ruth Pimentel, CEO at Kindred Nurseries, comments, "We are thrilled that Snap4Kids has joined our growing Kindred family. It further extends our footprint in Cambridgeshire, and we know it will be a great match for the rest of our group. Janet and Kenny’s passion was evident from the start, and they were keen to know that the nursery would continue to be looked after and further developed.” 

David Eaves, Director – Childcare & Education at Christie & Co, comments, “Snap4Kids is a fantastic nursery at the heart of its community, and I’m confident the setting will go from strength to strength under Kindred’s ownership. This deal is another great example of matching the right buyer with the right opportunity, and Snap4 Kids will be an excellent addition to Kindred’s growing portfolio across Cambridgeshire.”

Snap4Kids was sold for an undisclosed price.
