The Outstanding Nursery Programme

John and Deborah bought Scamps Day Nursery in Macclesfield in 2011.

At the time the nursery was barely making any profit and struggling to keep its head above water. The nursery had been in operation for over 20 years and was located in a small town with lots of other nurseries for competition. For those in the nursery world, this is a familiar story.

What isn’t familiar though is that twelve months after the acquisition, the nurseries profit had increased by over £75,000. The nursery was no longer fighting to survive and was starting to flourish. The business continued to grow steadily over the next few years and eight years and two months after buying the nursery for £150,000, John and Deborah sold Scamps to a major nursery chain for £4.5 million.
