Buyer’s dream of establishing her own childcare business becomes a reality!


Redwoods Dowling Kerr are delighted to announce the sale of Jitterbugs in Rowley, West Midlands.

Jitterbugs is a highly successful children’s activity and play centre, which provided terrific potential for future growth and development.

Following an impressive seven viewings, the childcare business was acquired by Mrs Natalie Shirley; a first time buyer on a leasehold basis. Mrs Shirley has plenty of experience in the childcare sector, having worked within a school, but she was wanted to run her own business, specifically looking to buy a nursery or activity centre. Mrs Shirley was extremely impressed with the service received through Redwoods Dowling Kerr commenting: “Thank you again for your help and hard work in order to help us purchase our play centre. I cannot fault the service you provided and I am so happy that we finally did it…”

Mrs Shirley further talks about her journey stating: “Looking back from the day we had our first viewing – I immediately knew then, that this place was for me… I am so happy to have finally completed and to say that I am the owner of the business which is now branded 'Junglebugs Indoor Play Centre'. Despite the worries and concerns, I have no regrets going for it.”

Finally, Mrs Shirley also commented on the service received from her nominated Childcare Negotiator, Firdaws Patel, commenting: “I would like to thank Firdaws, who probably spent more time than anything on the telephone, communicating with either me or the seller and the different solicitors in order to speed up the process of the sale.”

The vendor, Mr Jason Thompson, also had very positive comments: “Firdaws has been really helpful in the communication with solicitors and our buyer. During some frustrating times, she has been persistent and has committed her time to helping us in a positive and professional manner.”

The sale provided an excellent business prospect, being noted for being 'one of the largest indoor play centres within the area for children up to the age of 12'. Encompassing a soft play area, play frame, and being a popular party venue, the business also included a café with seating for over 160 people.

Firdaws Patel from Redwoods Dowling Kerr states: “Both Mr Thompson and Mrs Shirley have been brilliant to work with. Mr Thompson decided to place the business on the market with us due to other business interests, and I wish him the best of luck with his other ventures. I also wish Mrs Shirley all the best with the future of the new Junglebugs Indoor Play Centre.”
