Our childcare and education clients

Building strong and collaborative relationships with our customers is central to our business – this enables us to identify and evaluate the right opportunities for you.

We work with a range of childcare and education clients accommodating a full range of services: facilitating deals, RICS Red book valuations, consultancy, rent reviews and rating. They choose to work with us because of our ability to provide valuable, reliable and insightful recommendations and advice.

Here's what some of them have said about us...

“The service from Christies was excellent, both in the valuation process, which was very thorough, and the clarity and detail of the reports.  I would certainly recommend them as impartial experts in the childcare sector.”

Zoe Raven, Acorn Childcare, January 2017

"In a market known for relationships and trust, we value the childcare experience and expertise that Christies brings to each and every transaction. The breadth of services Christie & Co offers on childcare, from the advisory, to the consulting, to the finance, ensures all our needs are catered for. They are a true "one-stop-shop."

Edward Davies, ICP Nurseries, January 2017

“We would have no hesitation in recommending and /or using the services of Christie & Co for any future projects." 

Jennifer Fennessy, vendor of Little Muffins Day Nursery, January 2017

“The Magic portfolio has grown via acquisitions to 16 childcare settings, over a 14 year period, during which I have worked with many business agents. When the time came for us to consider the sale of our business, Christie & Co was our first and only port of call. I would highly recommend their services to other nursery owners that are contemplating the sale of their business.” 

Tom Reed, Magic Nurseries

"I would like to thank Courteney Donaldson and Nick Brown, our agents at Christie & Co, for their advice, guidance and support throughout this transaction. Leading up to my decision to sell the business I carefully researched potential advisors, including Business Agents and Corporate Finance houses transaction teams. Speaking with other former nursery group owners also, Courteney and her team were very highly recommended.” 

Paul Clarke, Positive Steps Nurseries, January 2017

"I am delighted with the recent sale of my flagship nursery in Horsham. With the help of Nick Brown at Christie and Co, who has used his vast experience in the childcare sector, we have secured an excellent outcome, not only for me, but for the children and parents of the nursery.  The new operators are of the highest calibre and I feel very confident that they will continue to provide the very best childcare in Horsham.”
