Expanding regional day nursery provider Just Childcare has added to its portfolio by scooping up a pair of children’s nurseries in Doncaster.
The company has bought St Mary’s Day Nursery and Small World Day Nursery, which are located ten miles apart in Bessacarr and Hatfield. Both have been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and have a combined operating capacity for 242 children, providing care for ages 0-5.
Having established these nurseries 15 years ago, after struggling to find quality day care for their own children, previous owners Jonathon & Donna Woodhead decided to sell in order to focus on other business interests.
The two nurseries will bring Just Childcare’s portfolio to a total of 55 settings across Yorkshire, the North West and South West of England.
David Johnson, CEO at the business, said: “We’re delighted to be able to add St Mary’s and Small World Day Nurseries to our portfolio, with their fantastic reputations for quality and well established standing in the community. “We have had an exciting period in 2019, with several settings joining the Just Childcare family and we look forward to investing in and growing our group throughout the rest of this year.”
