Kids Planet acquires Yorkshire nursery group

Kids Planet has acquired Twinkles Nurseries group of six nurseries in North and West Yorkshire, in turn reaching a milestone of surpassing 100 settings.

The Twinkles group was founded by Jill Smith in 2000 and is a family-run group of six nurseries in North and West Yorkshire, each rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ in their recent Ofsted inspections.

The six nurseries are called Boston Spa, Knaresborough, Leeds Church Walk, Leeds White Rose, Leeds Oxford Place, and Wetherby.

Kids Planet is developing a very strong foothold in the area and platform from which to further grow and deliver the highest quality early years childcare and education to even more families across Yorkshire, having recently acquiring The Kinderhaven Group, Rainbow Nursery School in Yorkshire and now Twinkles Nursery Group.

Chief exec of Kids Planet, Clare Roberts, commented “With Leeds being a city close to my heart, we are thrilled to have acquired a group such as Twinkles, which provides exceptionally high-quality childcare, mirroring that of Kids Planet.

“With Twinkles being a family run business just like ours, we believe they will transition into Kids Planet perfectly, upholding the same values and ideals we pride ourselves on.”
