Little Mice Acquired by Corporate Buyer


Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of an impressive day nursery ‘Little Mice’, consisting of two separate settings. With a combined registration of around 98 children, the nursery further comprises of an after school and summer club.

Situated in Suffolk, the first setting was established by the vendors Ms Higginson and Mrs McDougall back in 2000. The unit incorporates a single storey building of approximately 2000 sq. ft, which is located within the town centre. The second setting was developed back in 2008 – operating from a separate unit at a local primary school. The units operate approximately half a mile from each other, and both have a plentiful mix of residential housing and commercial businesses nearby; giving an excellent catchment area of customers.

The business was brought to the market due to semi-retirement and other business interests outside the childcare sector. As a great deal of time, effort and money was spent on both nurseries; the vendors wanted to ensure new owners would take control of the business and build on the solid foundations already in place.

Following 3 viewings and 1 offer, the business was acquired by the corporate operator ‘Sunhill Daycare (Europe) Limited’, who operate a growing chain of day nurseries.

Established in 1991, Sunhill Daycare works with the aim of ensuring children have the necessary social and learning skills needed to cope with the future challenges of formal education and beyond. Regarding the service received at Redwoods Dowling Kerr, Sunnhill Daycare comments “We were very happy with the service provided. Karrina Lee (Senior Childcare Negotiator) always kept in touch and responded to requests quickly. We have used Redwoods Dowling Kerr for many years, and will continue to do so.”
