The setting, just 5 minutes from Nantwich town centre, is located on a large plot of land with beautiful outdoor play areas. The nursery is ideal for those working in local business parks and within the town centre.
It’s a freehold setting and has recently been refurbished, showcasing vibrant and welcoming playrooms that are supported by a highly qualified and skilled team.
The nursery was established by its current owners, Elmscot Day Nurseries Ltd, who own seven settings located in Cheshire and South Manchester. The group took the decision to sell the nursery as its geographical location was not ideal for the other settings.
Ms Dee Mckenzie, director of Elmscot Group, commented:
‘We have worked with Christie & Co on a number of occasions over the years and were extremely happy with the service provided by Sofia and how quickly she found us a buyer. We have loved seeing the children and staff thrive since we took over at Elmscot Nantwich and we are so pleased to hand over to La Maternelle. They are an outstanding local provider who will be able to support them from a closer proximity and are the perfect fit for the nursery.’
The nursery has been purchased by La Maternelle Ltd, an expanding local childcare operator who already run two high quality day nurseries; one in Wistaston, near Crewe, and one in Sandbach.
Mr Will Brown, director of La Maternelle,stated:
‘We are delighted to take over ownership of the Elmscot setting in Nantwich. We are a family business offering high-quality care in Wistaston and Sandbach and are delighted to have this opportunity to offer care to parents in Nantwich. One of the nursery’s attributes is a strong family ethos, as the name La Maternelle derives from the French meaning ‘A Homely Place’. We care passionately about each child’s future, and develop positive partnerships with parents and carers.’
Sofia Beck, associate director of Childcare & Education at Christie & Co, who handled the sale, added:
‘Knowing both the sellers and the buyers well, we were able to match this opportunity suitably. La Maternelle had been looking for a site in Nantwich for some time and Elmscot Nantwich was an obvious strong fit which encouraged a short marketing process. The two parties formed a solid relationship from start to finish, which encouraged the sale to continue and complete despite the current conditions.’
Elmscot Day Nursery and Nursery School was sold at an undisclosed price.
