Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy children`s day nursery in Lincolnshire. The business was established by our client in 2010 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire to move abroad. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £124,000 per annum, with a good gross profit of 91%.
Our client offers care for up to 100 children ranging from 6 weeks to 5 years old. The business provides good quality childcare and education, which involves the children, as well as getting involved in special occasions, charity and community events. The business provides a happy, caring and stimulating atmosphere in a very secure environment. The business has a highly qualified and experienced team, who support both the child and parents.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of care and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade and have been fitted to a high standard and are well-maintained throughout. We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further.
There is also scope to extend the opening hours and perhaps start an after school club, as all the equipment to do this is already in place. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular nursery business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
