Dan Slipper, the owner of Alpha Kindergarten in Peterborough and an established corporate buyer, has purchased Park Lane Kids in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, a group of two children’s day nurseries: Park Lane Nursery and Woodlands Nursery.
Park Lane Nursery has operated since 2008 and has capacity for more than 30 children from newborn to five years of age.
Woodlands Nursery was established in 2012 and has capacity for more than 110 children aged from three months to five years of age.
Vendor Samantha Faulkner stated that she had achieved everything that she desired to within the childcare sector and reached the conclusion that it is now time to focus on exploring new opportunities in different sectors. She also believes the nurseries would greatly benefit from a new purchaser to introduce new ideas and a new approach.
The sale was facilitated by commercial real estate firm Redwoods Dowling Kerr.
