Storal Learning Limited acquire 17th setting through Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Redwoods Dowling Kerr sell “outstanding” nursery in Cheshire.

With children under the nursery’s care making “exceptional progress”, Tiggy-Winkles’ “inspirational teaching” earned the setting an “outstanding” rating during their recent Ofsted inspection in December 2018. With a capacity for 100 children, the setting boasted an impressive annual fee income due to its historically healthy occupancy levels.

Once on the market, Tiggy-Winkles received immediate interest with a final bid date having to be put in place. All parties that viewed the setting submitted offers. The successful bidders were the national operator Storal Learning. Attracted to the nursery due to its renowned and exception reputation for quality, Storal plan to continue the business’s success, with Tiggy-Winkles becoming the 17th addition to their high-quality portfolio.

Tiggy-Winkles was brought to the market by previous owners Colin & Andrea Scott who wished to spend more time focussing on their property company whilst leaving their nursery in the very best hands.

Lead negotiator of the sale, Natasha commented;

“I am delighted to have been able to work with Colin and Andrea on the sale of Tiggy-Winkles, the nursery is a fantastic setting which shows from the high level of interest and offers received from day one.”

“I’d like to wish them all the best and hope they get some well-deserved holidays! I’d also like to thank Storal Learning for always being a pleasure to work with.”

“I wish them continued success and hope the setting continues to thrive in the same manner it has in the past.”

Varun Chanrai, Managing Director of Storal Learning commented;

“Colin and Andrea’s consistent delivery of only the highest quality childcare is really manifested in the culture and ethos of Tiggy-Winkles. From the moment we saw the site and met the vendors, we knew their ethos matched ours at Storal Learning. We look forward to only enhancing Colin and Andrea’s legacy and learning from all the great things Tiggy-Winkles do. Storal Learning prides itself on sharing knowledge and best practice across our sites and we look forward to a great future with Tiggy-Winkles as part of our family.”

“As always thanks to Jenna, Natasha and the wider Redwoods team. They have shown only the utmost professionalism throughout the process and we look forward to working again with them in the future.”
