Kids Planet Acquires Giggles and Wiggles

Company News

12 May 2023

Kids Planet is delighted to announce the acquisition of Giggles & Wiggles, a fantastic group of three nurseries in Newcastle Under Lyme, Stoke and Stone.

Joining the Kids Planet family, the three settings complement our existing presence in Staffordshire.

Giggles and Wiggles provide the best of care and nursery education in warm, happy, and secure environments where children are encouraged to learn through play.

Clare Roberts, CEO at Kids Planet Day Nurseries, said:

“A warm welcome to all the teams, children, and parents of Giggles & Wiggles. The three settings build our presence in Staffordshire, and we look forward to supporting them as part of the Kids Planet family.”

Jill Jones, previous owner at Giggles & Wiggles said:

“Having owned Giggles & Wiggles for over 18 years, selling them was always going to be a difficult decision and so I was keen for the process to be as straightforward as possible. The Kids Planet team communicated well from the outset, handled everything sensitively with compassion, and in a timely manner. Kids Planet provided valuable insight and guidance throughout and demonstrated real empathy and thought for our teams and parents. This provided welcomed reassurance and I am confident the nurseries are in safe hands.”

Joining our Kids Planet family group:

Our expanding portfolio – Having grown to 159 settings across the UK since launching in 2008, and with substantial experience in the Early Years sector, we continue to look to acquire existing nurseries whilst seeking development opportunities.
