Pre-School acquired by Just Childcare


Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of The Hollies Pre-School Nursery situated in Lancashire. The business was acquired by Just Childcare – a corporate buyer with over 65 years of combined experience within childcare and education. So far, they have acquired 3 settings through Redwoods Dowling Kerr, with more to complete in the near future.

The setting, initially owned by Mr and Mrs Monk, incorporates an imposing and substantial double fronted detached property, which is immaculately appointed throughout. Originally offering quality childcare for up to 50 children; the nursery had built up an excellent reputation within the local and wider community. Mr and Mrs Monk only brought the nursery to the market due to their wish to retire.

Following 5 viewings and 3 offers; the business was sold to the corporate buyer on a freehold basis. Already operating 19 settings; Just Childcare were the ideal buyer for the setting. Sarah Ellison, Senior Childcare Negotiator at Redwoods Dowling Kerr comments “Just Childcare have shown through other sales; that their credibility in the childcare sector can only grow to become more successful. They were the ideal buyers with experience and knowledge combined. I am pleased to have completed the sale to such successful buyers, who can continue on from the many years of hard work Mr and Mrs Monk have put into the nursery. I also wish them all the best in their retirement.”

Mr and Mrs Monk commented “We found Redwoods Dowling Kerr to be brilliant and very helpful. The nursery was brought to the market on a leasehold basis, and Redwoods Dowling Kerr were able to find a cash buyer to complete the sale on a freehold basis. I found the communication excellent, and the service provided by Sarah to be extremely helpful…”

Matt Scott, from Coupe Bradbury Solicitors, who was involved in facilitating the sale commented “We are very pleased with the completion of Hollies Pre-School, and would like to wish our mutual client the very best with their future plans. As always, it was a pleasure to deal with Redwoods Dowling Kerr who helped progress the sale though from start to finish.”
