Nursery group Purley, which has settings in Stoke, Northampton and Chesterfield, has acquired Dragonflies Day Nursery an independent nursery in Calverton, Nottinghamshire catering for up to 51 children aged from newborn to five years old.

The nursery is located in a former police station and was previously owned by Michele Larman who ran the nursery for over six years and is now retiring.

Larman said: “Having converted the police house and police station in 2014 into a purpose-built nursery, it was important when I was considering handing over the reins that it would be to someone who would lavish the same care and attention to detail that I have for the last seven years.”

Business property advisor, Christie & Co, facilitated the sale. Jassi Sunner, associate director at Christie & Co, commented: “Day nurseries like this will always garner significant attention due to the lack of businesses coming to market, which can enable the best price possible for the seller – as was the case for Michele.”
