Kids Planet acquires Heywood Early Years

Company News

16 November 2022

We are delighted to reveal the acquisition of the Heywood Early Years group, a trio of nurseries in Heywood, Greater Manchester called Buttercups, Daisy Chain, and Woodlands.

These new additions to the Kids Planet family take our total number of settings to 141 across the UK and we look forward to welcoming them into the group.

The Heywood Early Years nurseries value the importance of children learning through play, and encourage children to enjoy doing things for themselves, as independence promotes confidence. Complementing our own ethos, the new settings are passionate about outdoor learning, and providing quality day-care for children aged 0-5 years.

Clare Roberts, CEO at Kids Planet, said:

“I am pleased to welcome the Heywood Early Years nurseries into our Kids Planet family, and look forward to supporting the existing teams as they integrate into our group.
Their presence helps us develop an even stronger support network within the Greater Manchester area, as they will sit alongside our leading nurseries in that area.”

Darren & Jayne Grindrod, former owners, said:

“After 27 years in childcare, it was a difficult decision to hand control over to a new company. From the moment we were introduced to Kids Planet, we quickly became aware that we shared the same high standards, ethos and values. We have been reassured throughout that our settings and teams are in safe hands and we have every confidence they will flourish moving forwards.”

Our expanding portfolio: Having grown to over 130 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.
