Hello Mapperley! As part of our growth strategy, we have acquired Beginnings Nursery in Nottingham. Opened in November 2019, the 73-place nursery is situated on Westdale Lane in Mapperley, Nottingham. This acquisition takes Cherubs Nurseries to operating 14 nurseries, offering a total of 973 places.
Managing Director, Susan Mills commented “As we transition out of the pandemic we are able to see the early signs of security and sustainability in the early years sector. This means we can push forward with growth plans that were temporarily halted due to Covid-19. Following 2 acquisitions in 2019 (Cherubs Edwinstowe and Cherubs Ruddington) we are committed to growing even further and are actively exploring new opportunities across the Midlands and beyond. With this in mind, I am pleased to welcome Beginnings Day Nursery to Cherubs Nurseries. The nursery has recently been refurbished and aligns perfectly with our new approach to early years inspired by Montessori, Hygge, Reggio and Forest School. The nursery has established a great reputation, shares our ethos and commitment to providing the very best care and education and is therefore a welcome addition to Cherubs Nurseries.”
In addition to growth plans Cherubs Nurseries are also in the process of carrying out refurbishment projects at 6 of their existing nurseries including Cherubs Executive House, Kimberley, Longdale, Ruddington, South Normanton and Sutton in Ashfield. Operations Manager, Sarah Savage said “Whilst we are committed to growth our focus does not shift from our existing nurseries. It is important we continue to invest in our nurseries to maintain our high standards – creating those memorable learning and play experiences for the children, filled with awe and wonder. This work has been well-received by our children, parents and staff and is reflected in our 1,000 verified parent reviews on DayNurseries.co.uk with a group score of 9.7/10.”
As with all acquisitions, we will work closely and collaboratively with the children, parents and staff to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
