Little Ripley Day Nurseries expand their portfolio with Bush Babies Children’s Centre and Nursery

Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Bush Babies, a first class day nursery and children’s centre, located in a highly desirable and affluent residential area in the West Midlands.

The nursery has operated successfully in Sutton Coldfield for over 20 years and during that time has earned a tremendous reputation for providing the highest levels of care in a secure environment. Bush Babies therefore enjoys regular referrals and recommendations, with occupancy levels at or near to capacity. A charming and highly lucrative business, Bush Babies was only offered for sale due to the retirement of the vendors, Mrs Pauline Robins and Mrs Susan Swan.

Following a number of viewings and offers, Bush Babies was sold to experienced local operator Little Ripley Day Nurseries, becoming the 11th setting in their portfolio. A highly reputable, family-run child day care business, Little Ripley Day Nurseries have an established reputation for excellence in the Sutton Coldfield and Erdington area.

The vendors, Mrs Robins and Mrs Swan said: “Redwoods Dowling Kerr were always professional, helpful, friendly and always there for us. They continued to push and try new avenues when interest seemed quiet. We found them excellent, confidential and persistent.

“Upon leaving Bush Babies, we have a mixture of feelings. We’re sad to leave the nursery we established back in in 1994, but we’re happy to have sold and are re-assured knowing that the nursery has been left in good hands.”

Karrina Lee from Redwoods Dowling Kerr commented: “I am pleased to have facilitated this sale and look forward to seeing the new owners build on the nursery’s solid foundations and drive the business forward. We would like to wish both vendors and purchasers every success in their future endeavours.”
