A DAY nursery in Cheshire has been sold for an undisclosed amount to an expanding operator.

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has announced the sale of Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery in Wilmslow to Nina’s Nurseries.

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery is a well-established business which historically offers a quality care experience for children aged zero to five-years-old.

The nursery operates from a four-storey semi-detached property which has been converted and renovated to a high standard.

The nursery has been purchased by Nina’s Nurseries Ltd which was founded by Ms Nina Stones in 2001.

This purchase takes the number of nurseries owned by the company to eight, with its existing seven settings based in Cheshire providing more than 300 childcare places.

Monkey Puzzle’s operations director, Stuart Graham, said: “At Monkey Puzzle, our primary desire is for communities to be served by great nurseries run by great operators, and for many years Wilmslow has been wonderfully served by Liz and her team under the Monkey Puzzle Day Nurseries brand."

Chief founding officer of Nina’s Nurseries, Nina Stones, said: “I’m extremely excited to welcome the former Monkey Puzzle, Wilmslow Day Nursery (now rebranded as Nina’s Nursery Wilmslow) into our group."

Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery was sold at an undisclosed price.
