Redwoods Dowling Kerr recently facilitated the sale of Cheshire based nursery group Rosebank Nurseries.
Registered for a combined capacity of 200 children, Rosebank Nurseries is formed of 3 settings: The Rosebank Centre, Rosebank Naturegarten and The Lakes Centre. The settings accommodate children from 3 months to 11 years of age and operates out of school and holiday clubs.
Since its establishment in 1991, the group has garnered an enviable reputation in Cheshire for providing high-quality childcare provisions. This was recognised by Ofsted in the nurseries’ most recent assessments with two settings receiving an ‘Outstanding’ rating and the remaining setting achieving a ‘Good’ rating.
Additionally, the group holds several accreditations and awards such as 5-Star Hygiene Awards, NDNA e-Quality Counts (awarded at the highest level) and Accredited Level of the Early Years Nutrition Partnership Quality Mark.
The owners wished to sell after 30 years in the sector and instructed RDK in the sale.
The business was sold to Mandy Herrington, an experienced operator and owner of Bowdon Nursery School and Heather Grove Montessori Nursery. As a qualified and experienced operator, Mandy Herrington was attracted to Rosebank Nurseries due to the excellent location and the opportunity to acquire a small, reputable group.
The vendors are delighted with the results of the sale and are now enjoying their hard-earned retirement. Mandy Herrington plans to get to know all members of staff and familiarise herself with the structure, working with everyone to integrate it into her group.
Sales negotiator Sarah Ellison said:
‘It has been a pleasure to work with the vendors. It is always a massive decision to sell any business, but we believe Mandy has the vast knowledge and experience that the vendors were looking for. I would like to wish Mandy all the best with the new group and the vendors a well-deserved retirement.’
