Expanding nursery group acquires West Sussex childcare setting thanks to Redwoods Dowling Kerr.
Put onto the market by Redwoods Dowling Kerr due to the vendor’s wish to spend more time with her family, Happy Steps Nursery LTD was established by the vendors in 2008 and quickly outgrew its original church hall location due to demand. The setting cares for 40 children aged between 3 months and 11 years and has had its high standards recognised through being awarded a “Good” rating after its most recent Ofsted inspection, with the many opportunities created, engagement with children and the support of their progress being thoroughly praised.
Receiving multiple offers on the back of its 9 viewings, Happy Steps Nursery Ltd saw great interest whilst on the market with RDK, with the successful bid being made by experienced group operatives Mrs Kerry Lewis and Mr Richard Saunders. Already owning 6 successful childcare settings in Worthing, the business partners say they were attracted to the nursery after looking to expand their existing group into the Sussex region and hope to elaborate on the setting’s historical success by incorporating a new out of school club.
Lead Negotiator of the sale, Sarah Ellison commented;
“I’d like to wish Kerry and Richard the best of Luck with their new venture at Happy Steps Day Nursery, I know they are eager to put all their new ideas into place to continue the success of the nursery. I would like to thank Rochelle for her patience during the process of selling the business and I wish her all the best for the future and enjoy the family time.”
