The All About Children day nursery group has announced the acquisition of two nurseries, to bring the total number of nurseries to 38 within the group.
They have completed the purchase of Playplus Nursery, located in Bourne End, near Berkhamsted, in Hertfordshire, and Progress House, based in Market Harborough in Leicestershire.
Playplus Nursery is set in a beautiful rural location between Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted, and joins a number of similar All About Children nurseries located across Bedfordshire, Bucks, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and Surrey.
Progress House is based in Market Harborough, Leicestershire and opened in 1997. With a well-established local reputation, it was sold to All About Children following the retirement of its owners.
Sinead Johnson, Chief Operating Officer at All About Children, comments on the two acquisitions: ‘We’re delighted to announce the purchase of these two businesses, both of which represent a great fit in the All About Children ‘family’ of nurseries. Securing them is a clear demonstration of our ambition to expand our nursery business, while holding onto the values we hold dear – namely, being enthusiastic, kind, respectful and authentic in everything we say and do.
‘We loved meeting the children and the staff of Playplus Nursery, and look forward to continuing their amazing work in this wonderful setting. We’re confident that with our investment and the ideas of our staff, we can build on what’s already been achieved.
‘Similarly, Progress House has a lovely, locally established reputation and is a great addition to our Midlands-based nursery group, in and around Birmingham, and the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire region.’
