Nursery group purchases Derby business

Children 1st Day Nurseries has completed the purchase of The Honey Pot Nursery in Breadsall, Derby.

The family owned and managed nursery group now has 24 settings across the Midlands and South Yorkshire. The nursery will remain fully open to all existing children and new jobs will be created at the setting located on Hill Top.

As well as this investment in staff, Children 1st also plans a significant programme of refurbishment to enhance the learning environments, outside areas and facilities at the setting.

The Honey Pot will change its name to become Children 1st @ Oakwood. Over time, the current nursery premises will be extended into the adjoining property on the site.

Children 1st Day Nurseries’ Managing Director Adrian Mason said: “When we visited the setting we were impressed by how well it was run. It was clear the owners shared our ethos in terms of how childcare should be delivered which means that the transition will be smooth. We are confident that the new Children 1st @ Oakwood will be a hugely positive development for existing and future families as well as the local community.

“We are planning to invest significantly in the setting and its grounds and buildings provide us with a huge opportunity to create one of Derby’s best nursery environments for children to enjoy, both indoors and outside. We can’t wait to get started.”

Suzanne Miskow, owner of The Honey Pot Nursery, said: “When we met the team at Children 1st we knew that they would have the best of intentions for the nursery, our children and families. This was very important to us. We are really pleased that the nursery will be taken over by a family run business that will take the setting forward for future generations of children to enjoy.”
