Selling your Early Years Service?

Committed to quality education and care in stimulating and progressive environments.

Selling your early years business to the right buyer does not have to be a daunting prospect. As a leading early years education and school-age childcare provider, our goal is to continue the great work that we have been doing with an aim to developing our brand’s reach.

We intend to further our passion for childcare, our ethos and our provision of safe, nurturing and happy environments by acquiring new sites across the country.

We genuinely believe that childhood is a treasured time and high-quality early years care and education can shape every child’s life in a positive way. Therefore, it is our responsibility to provide environments and experiences that capture the joys of childhood, nurture each child’s individual growth and development, and pave the way for success in school and life.
