We are happy to announce our latest acquisition of Bush Babies Nursery Group, a private childcare provider with a portfolio of seven nurseries in the Midlands, which collectively offer 465 registered places for children from three months to five years.
We are proud to be the largest provider of childcare in the UK, with this latest acquisition bringing our total of nurseries to 257.
As a group, Bush Babies has gained an excellent reputation for providing outstanding childcare in the Midlands, and we are very excited to welcome these nurseries to Busy Bees.
Marg Randles, Managing Director, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome the Bush Babies group into the Busy Bees family. Every nursery in the portfolio is already providing exceptional outcomes for children and we are all really looking forward to working with the extremely talented teams in place.
“It is an absolute pleasure to work with such experienced managers and devoted staff, all of whom will continue to play the most important role, providing quality care for the children in partnership with their families. Meanwhile we will be working very closely with the management team to ensure this transition is as seamless as possible for everyone involved.”
“It is our promise to keep our parents informed every step of the way, as we continue to improve the excellent care, resources and services this collection of outstanding nurseries currently offer.”
Bush Babies Group’s founder and director, Jane Brailsford, who has been involved in the business since it began in 1992 said:
“Over the past 24 years we have built upon an incredibly successful nursery business in the Midlands. It has been an incredible journey and a fantastic team effort from everyone involved. We were understandably precious about who we sold the business to, but I believe that in Busy Bees we are handing over the reins to someone who can continue Bush Babies ethos and build upon the success we have achieved. I’d like to thank everyone who has helped us along the way, and I wish Bush Babies and Busy Bees every success in the future.”
