Wickham Montessori School in Hampshire

Wickham Montessori, which is situated in the beautiful Wickham countryside, was established in 2014 by Liz Freemantle whose aim was to create a warm, friendly environment for 46 children aged six months to five years. Liz later went into business with her then Manager, Ashley Pitt. The nursery has an excellent staff team that has been in situ for a while and will continue on post-sale.

Following a confidential sales process with Sophie Willcox at Christie & Co, the setting has been purchased by Kids Love Nature - a successful Hampshire and Dorset-based Kindergarten group with four other settings. The location was a huge pull for the new owners, whose ethos focuses on outdoor learning and nature alongside the Montessori ethos.

Sophie Willcox, Director – Childcare & Education at Christie & Co, comments, “I have known Liz for many years and was delighted when she approached me to sell her business for her and Ashley. I wish Kids Love Nature the very best of luck with their new setting and am excited to see what they do with the nursery. I know they plan to create an outdoor kitchen for the children which I imagine will be a huge hit!”

Wickham Montessori School was sold for an undisclosed price.
