Day nursery provider Busy Bees Nurseries Ltd have announced a major acquisition, having confirmed that seventy-one Just Learning Ltd nurseries are to become part of its already substantial childcare portfolio.
The chain – which includes Just Learning, Careshare Ltd and Nunu Ltd nurseries – are registered to welcome more than 6,600 children from birth to five years old, meaning that Busy Bees are now easily the largest UK provider, with more than 19,600 admissions at a total of 214 settings.
Commenting on the acquisition, managing director Marg Randles said: “We are delighted to have acquired Just Learning; the nurseries are a perfect fit for Busy Bees, delivering a childcare offering which complements our focus on making every child’s interests, safety and happiness central to everything we do.
“The acquisition demonstrates our confidence in the UK childcare market.
“Parents demand quality care for their children and, throughout the UK, during a long number of years Busy Bees has established an enviable reputation for its high standards.
“We have been working closely with the management team to ensure the handover is seamless for children, parents and staff. We will be keeping parents informed every step of the way, as we hope to further develop the excellent care, resources and services the nurseries currently offer.
“As always the Managers and the staff teams at the nurseries will continue to play the most important role, working closely with children and families.”
