Acclaimed Abacus Day Nursery has been SOLD by Redwoods Dowling Kerr

Respected day nursery in Ashton Under Lyne is now under new ownership thanks to Redwoods Dowling Kerr.

Situated in a popular Greater Manchester location, this family run nursery is positioned in a well populated residential area.

Established by our vendor, Karen Dover, this successful business provides high quality care for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age; with a capacity for 71 children.

It operates from an impressive, modernised premises. The setting has benefitted from considerable reinvestment and renovation under the current ownership.

This made it a highly desirable setting when it was introduced to the market.

The nursery benefits greatly from a comprehensive management structure, and it also features a dedicated team of highly trained and highly qualified early years practitioners.

The high standards of the nursery, paired with the unparalleled care that the staff provide, has resulted in Abacus Day Nursery earning a ‘Good’ Ofsted report upon its most recent inspection in March 2018.

As a result of this, the nursery has consolidated an outstanding reputation within the local community, regularly receiving complimentary reviews, recommendations and referrals.

Once on the market, Abacus generated a great deal of interest. It attracted 31 viewings and received 7 offers.

It was only placed onto the market due to the vendor’s desire to spend more time with family.

The setting was ultimately acquired by PBS Investment Limited, a consultation agency that supports co-operation between the UK and overseas investment.

They wish to use their new acquisition to build on the already successful reputation of the nursery.

The vendor commented;

“I would like to thank Kim for all her hard work, listening and support with the sale. Her support has been invaluable.”

“She has been very consistent in her approach to the sale, always following through with tasks. Communication has been excellent; she has always been at the end of the phone. She has been understanding, committed and reliable throughout the whole process and kept me up to date and well informed at all times. I would certainly recommend her as a negotiator, as she has provided excellent customer service and professionalism throughout. She has been fantastic, truly an asset to Redwoods. I would also like to thank Sarah, who on occasion I had correspondence with. She was equally supportive, obviously working very closely Kim to ensure continuity of excellent customer service, denoting great teamwork. The whole journey from beginning to end has been an emotional rollercoaster, I am feeling a bit numb at the moment. There is still much to do in transitioning information to the new owners. At the end I look forward to a long and happy retirement. Once again, my sincere thanks for everything. All the very best for Christmas and a happy 2020.”

Lead Negotiator Kim Emsley commented;

“Karen has been a client of ours for some time and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout. Karen was always prompt with her responses whether that be over the phone or via email and nothing was too much trouble for her whenever something needed looking at. It has been very easy to deal with Karen and I really do wish her the best of luck for the future. Enjoy your down time. We got there!”

“I would also like to wish the buyers every success in their venture.”
