At Abacus we understand that selling a Children’s Day Nursery is unlike selling any other business.
That is why at Abacus we choose to operate solely in the childcare sector.
We are able to draw on a wealth of experience to value and market your Nursery, whether you own and operate a 20 place nursery situated in a leased Church Hall or own a multi site, national company with a multi million pound fee income.
We understand that Nursery owners have a unique set of requirements when it comes to selling their business, such as a high degree of confidentiality and ensuring specific times of the year for completion.
At Abacus, your business will not be marketed alongside Post Offices, Pubs and convenience stores, but only other Nurseries.
Furthermore, as brokers operating exclusively in the child care sector, we also have a number of retained purchasers, in other words, buyers who will pay our fees. This offers the advantage of selling your nursery without ever having to even put it on the open market.
For Purchasers you can be assured that our experience can guide you through the legislation that sometimes goes hand in hand in purchasing a Nursery, such as when to approach OFSTED should provision of care be in the new owners name, CRB checks and so on.
Additionally, we can point in the direction of Solicitors who are experienced in the unique issues surrounding Nurseries when it comes to the business transfer.
As a Nationwide company, we can also identify nurseries for prospective purchasers anywhere in the UK.
So, whether you’ve had experience of marketing a Nursery before and would like to hear what we do differently or indeed would just like an initial chat to find out exactly what the current conditions are, we’ll be happy to talk to you in the strictest confidence.
For Purchasers and vendors alike, we know how important discretion is when it comes to the sale and acquisition of a nursery.
To these ends, many of our vendors require a Non Disclosure Agreement to be signed before details are presented to a potential purchaser.
This also means that many of the nurseries we represent are not listed, so should you be looking to acquire a nursery of a certain size or in a certain area and there’s nothing on our website, it is highly likely we can still present a business to you that is not being openly marketed.
