Little Tots in Berkshire Sold to Experienced Operator

Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Little Tots Nursery in Burghfield, Berkshire to Little Footprints Childcare.

The ‘outstanding’ nursery received considerable interest after marketing with the UK’s number one childcare brokerage.

Situated in a sought-after area of Berkshire, the nursery is registered for 52 children between the ages of 2 and 5. The nursery employs the Montessori approach to learning and enjoys high numbers as a result.

The vendors, Julie Torrible and Heather Schofield, are now looking to semi-retire, leaving the setting in the hands of Emma Turner and Victor Mason. The ambitious couple now intend to build on the success of the business following a rebrand under the Little Footprints ethos.

Commenting on the service provided by Redwoods Dowling Kerr, buyer, Emma Turner said:

“Redwoods Dowling Kerr have been brilliant to work with. Our liaison, Natasha, has been very efficient, informing both sides of information and always delivering the response to queries in a warm and friendly way making us feel at ease throughout the whole process.

“Redwoods Dowling Kerr are exemplary in every way, you can really tell that they have the understanding and expertise of what is required when acquiring a new setting as they have made the process flow and kept in good contact with each step.

“We would definitely recommend them and would be happy to promote them in any way we can. We will also be coming back to Redwoods Dowling Kerr in the future to build our chain further.”

The vendors, Julie Torrible and Heather Schofield, said:

“We have found Redwoods to be extremely professional, quick to organise viewings, confidential, and very quickly found a buyer for us.

“The purchase went through very quickly and Natasha, who handled everything for us, was friendly, helpful, sorted any queries speedily and efficiently, nothing was too much trouble!

“Exchange and completion all went very smoothly, so a BIG thank you for handling the sale for us, we are very pleased with your service.”

Sales negotiator Natasha Satterthwaite said:

It has truly been a pleasure to assist Julie and Heather with the sale of Little Tots and assisting Emma and Victor on their purchase. They all worked tirelessly to help secure a smooth stress-free transaction.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Julie and Heather a restful semi-retirement and continued success with their other setting and I’d like to with Emma and Victor the very best of luck with their purchase. I hope this is the start of a great relationship in assisting you with more acquisitions.”
