Wiltshire day nursery sold to existing operator through Christie & Co

Stepping Stones Day Nursery, located in Froxfield, Wiltshire, has been sold through specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, to an existing operator in the childcare sector.

Stepping Stones has been a family run nursery for over 30 years, providing exceptional childcare with an operating capacity for up to 63 children. The Ofsted rated ‘Good’ nursery benefits from its stunning rural location and attracts parents from a number of surrounding local villages and towns.

Having taken over the business in 2015, the current owner, Mrs Paterson wanted to find the right buyer who would continue to provide quality childcare and look after the long-established staff team that make the nursery what it is.
South Hills Nurseries, which currently operate eight existing nurseries across Wiltshire, decided to purchase Stepping Stones as the perfect addition to their group.

Sophie Willcox, Associate Director at Christie & Co handled the sale and comments, “I am delighted to have helped Charlotte in finding the right buyer for her nursery. I’d like to wish her the best of luck in any future ventures and I hope to assist Mr Proctor again in the future in expanding his group.”
