Little Teddies Nursery Sold by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Respected nursery in Basildon, Essex, transitions to new ownership.

Little Teddies nursery is renowned for providing an excellent childcare service within Essex. Operating out of a spacious 2 storey property, the setting has a capacity for 48 children aged from 3 months to 5 years of age. With a high demand for quality nursery provision in the locality, the setting operates from 07:00 to 19:00, 51 weeks a year.

The premises have been operated as a nursery for roughly 16 years, with Little Teddies being established by Mrs Hediye Ismail for the past 6 years. During this time, it has built a remarkable reputation in the locality, and is renowned for delivering an excellent standard of childcare to the bustling and populated residential and commercial area in which it is situated.

Little Teddies Nursery has undergone extensive refurbishment over recent years. There is also a local mainline train station linking to London which added to the unique selling factors.

This business was ultimately brought to market due to the current vendor’s wish to focus on fresh and exciting business interests outside of the childcare sector and to spend more time with the family.

Once placed on the market by Redwoods Dowling Kerr, the nursery attracted substantial interest. It received 9 viewings and 8 offers. It was ultimately acquired by a first-time buyer with previous experience within the nursery sector. The reputation of the setting, the location, and her desire to implement her knowledge and expertise within a full-time setting is what influenced the acquisition.

The vendor commented;

“The experience with Redwoods Dowling Kerr was very good, Kim kept me up to date throughout. The service was outstanding, advice and help was given whenever I needed it. I would definitely recommend Kim and the team at RDK, it has been a pleasure.”

Lead Negotiator Kim Emsley commented;

“From the very start it has been a pleasure dealing with Hediye and her husband Jim. I am extremely pleased for them both and wish them all the luck for the future. I am also really happy for the buyer Mrs Gill for what is a very exciting start for her. I am sure it will be a very successful journey.”
