Storal Learning acquire Manchester nursery via RDK

Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Old Crofts Bank Day Nursery in Urmston, Manchester, to corporate buyers Storal Learning.

Storal Learning own and operate several nurseries across England and their acquisition of Old Crofts Bank Day Nursery is their most recent to be brokered by leading childcare broker, Redwoods Dowling Kerr.

Old Crofts Bank Day Nursery is a charming children’s day nursery with capacity for 79 children from birth to 5-years-old.

Having successfully operated in the Trafford town of Urmston since 1997, the nursery has earned a truly enviable reputation for the quality of childcare provided. As a result, Old Crofts Day Nursery enjoys historically high levels of occupancy and regular recommendations and referrals.

The vendors, Mrs Linda Conway and Mrs Janet Hazzlewood, are now looking forward to semi-retirement and spending more time with their families.

A spokesperson from Storal Learning said:

“We are thrilled to now be a part of Old Crofts Bank Nursery and very much look forward to working with the nursery’s fantastic team to continue building on its long-standing reputation for high quality childcare.”

Senior Sales negotiator Sarah Ellison said:

“It was a massive decision for the sellers to come to market as they have run Old Crofts Bank Day Nursery for over 20 years.

“After meeting with Storal Learning, they felt they were the right group to build on the success of the business and ensure its excellent reputation prevails.

“I wish Linda Conway and Janet Hazzlewood all the best. It has been a pleasure assisting them with their sale, especially knowing how special the nursery, parents and staff are to them.

“We have worked with Storal Learning on other acquisitions and once again it was great to help them purchase another nursery. We wish them all the luck in the future.”
