Play-A-Way Day Care Centre in Kent Sold

Specialist childcare broker, Redwoods Dowling Kerr is thrilled to announce the sale of Play-A-Way Day Care Centres in Gillingham, Kent.

Redwoods Dowling Kerr was put in touch with the owners of Play- A-Way’s who wanted to discuss the sale of their nursery businesses. The opportunity on offer was the sale of two children’s nurseries located at Oddfellows Hall and Christmas Street, Gillingham, Kent.

Redwoods Dowling Kerr secured multiple viewings for the pair of nurseries, which resulted in several offers being put forward for the charming day-care settings. In the end, the successful offer came from an ambitious couple, Mr and Mrs Ahilan, who were looking to expand their portfolio to include an investment in childcare.

The pair of nurseries operates within a densely populated residential area of Kent, with both settings situated in proximity to main commuter routes. The local train station provides a regular service to London Victoria during peak times.

The business was originally established 20 years ago when the first nursery was opened and has traded from the current premises ever since. The business expanded 14 years ago with the purchase of the second nursery. The business has an excellent reputation and loyal members of staff, who have been in the business for a long time.

The buyer commented on the sale; “Thanks for your help over the last 18 months to make this happen.”

Karrina Lee, Senior Childcare Negotiator; “I am pleased to have been able to assist Mr & Mrs Ahilan with the purchase of their first nursery.  This acquisition shows the demand for single sites/group opportunities in the South East.”
