Kids Planet acquires The Green Nursery in Halesowen after 22-year ownership
The Green Nursery Ltd has been providing top-quality childcare and education for over 22 years; it accommodates up to 82 children aged from six weeks old to pre-school age and, in its last Ofsted inspection, it received eight outstanding awards. It is situated in a quiet, residential area at the foot of the Clent Hills, on the outskirts of Halesowen in the West Midlands.
The nursery has been owned by Rob Lyne since 1993 and, with the help of his family, he has developed it into a fantastic setting with a great reputation. It has now been acquired by Kids Planet, one of the fastest growing nursery groups in the Midlands.
CEO of Kids Planet, Clare Roberts, comments, “We are really excited to have The Green Nursery join the Kids Planet group. Being based in the Midlands, it is a wonderful addition to our already strong presence in this area for providing high-quality childcare. It is a beautifully presented setting and is a true testament to the dedication of Rob and his caring team. It was apparent from our first visit to The Green Nursery that they hold similar values to Kids Planet as they want to provide outstanding care to the children, and I believe they will integrate perfectly into the Kids Planet family.”
Jassi Sunner, associate director – childcare & education at Christie & Co, who supported the sale, comments, “When I met Rob and The Green Nursery which he has nurtured to such a high standard, I knew this would be a good fit for Kids Planet and would allow them to easily transition their ethos to the staff to create a seamless takeover. This setting is the latest fantastic addition to Kids Planet’s growth in the Midlands and provides a strategic location west of Birmingham, connecting their settings in Birmingham and Shropshire.”
The Green Nursery Ltd was sold for an undisclosed price.
