‘Outstanding’ Leamington Spa day nursery sold to Bright Stars

  • 20th June 2024

Christie & Co has announced the sale of The Lighthouse Day Care Nursery in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.

The Lighthouse Day Care Nursery is an Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ setting with an excellent reputation for providing high-quality childcare to up to 49 children.

It occupies a prime location in the affluent royal spa town of Leamington Spa.

The setting has been owned by Judy Hall for over 20 years and, following a confidential sales process with Jassi Sunner at Christie & Co, it has been purchased by Bright Stars. This is the group’s second setting in the town and its 112th in the UK.

Hall said: “It was a very-difficult decision to sell my nursery because I have loved both creating it and then watching it grow into the flourishing setting it has become today.

“It has been an amazing privilege to watch so many incredible children develop over the last 21 years and to get to know and work with the staff and parents who made it all possible.

“There have been many happy times and funny moments and it was not easy to decide to step down. However, the time was right to make the transition and I was very pleased to be able to sell the nursery to the Bright Stars nursery group because it is committed to maintaining the individuality of the setting and looking after the staff – both of which were my main considerations.”

Kirsty Ibbott, M&A director at Bright Stars, adds: “This acquisition not only strengthens our presence in the Midlands area, but also allows us to offer unparalleled early childhood education opportunities to even more families.

“The Lighthouse Day Care Nursery will continue to operate under its current name and management, ensuring a seamless transition for children, parents, and staff.”

The nursery was sold for an undisclosed price.
