Group of two nurseries sold by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Ark Childcare (UK) Ltd SOLD by Redwoods Dowling Kerr.

Established for many years under the careful ownership of Vendor, Roz Young, Ark Childcare (UK) Ltd in Shrewsbury, Shropshire has cultivated an impressive reputation for providing quality childcare across two nursery settings.

Caring for 89 children from 3 months to 5 years of age, Ark Childcare (UK) Ltd enjoyed a healthy fee income on the back of its excellent reputation for providing high quality childcare.

Continuously high occupancy levels and the quality of care provided at each setting is echoed through the findings in the latest Ofsted report which rated both nurseries as “Outstanding” for the personal development, behaviour and welfare of the children under its care.

Ark Childcare (UK) Ltd was put onto the market with Redwoods Dowling Kerr as the Vendor, Roz Young wished to semi-retire and after just 4 viewings an offer was received.

Delighted with the attentive service the Vendor, Miss Roz Young said:

“I would like to thank Redwoods Dowling Kerr and in particular Natasha Satterthwaite for all of their help, advice and assistance in selling my childcare group. It is such a huge mix of emotions when you decide the time is right to pass the reigns on, but I have many wonderful memories and I’m confident that the new owners will continue to move the business forward and care for the parents, children and staff.  Redwoods Dowling Kerr were incredibly helpful and supportive with all aspects of the sale particularly as this is not a process I have been through before. They are always only a phone call away and go above and beyond to ensure you get where you need to be. They pushed hard to ensure I received the best price and also to find the right buyer that I felt comfortable handing my business over to.”

The Sales Lead Negotiator Natasha Satterthwaite commented;

“I’m delighted to have got this deal over the line for Roz, she is definitely deserving of a well-earned break. I’m sure the new owners will be able to continue the success of Ark and Crackerjacks, taking The Ark to the next level in its new setting. I’d like to take the opportunity to wish both buyer and vendor the best of luck in all their future endeavours.”
