Kids Planet acquires Kings Park Day Nursery

Company News

15 December 2022

We have some fantastic news to reveal – Kings Park Day Nursery, a wonderful, privately run day nursery in Knowsley, has joined the Kids Planet family!

Complementing Kids Planet’s own values and ethos, this setting places strong emphasis on children learning through interaction with people and exploring the world around them.

Kings Park offers expert care to children aged 3 months to 5 years, and the team believes that no matter how good indoor facilities are, outdoor areas are key to the children’s happiness.

There are designated outdoor areas with all kinds of play equipment for the children to freely access, and even a Yoga Studio, which is a firm favourite with our children, offering them the perfect place to enjoy movement through music.

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

“We are thrilled to have acquired Kings Park Day Nurseries, and I am looking forward to welcoming and supporting the team. Their addition to our Kids Planet family strengthens our presence and support network within Merseyside area, and means we’re now a group of 143 nurseries across the UK.”

Craig Jackson and Nadine McCarthy, former owners of Kings Park, said: 

“Due to changes in personal circumstances we made the tough decision to take Kings Park Day Nursery to market. Being close to many of the staff, some of whom had been with the nursery since inception over 14 years ago it was extremely important to us that this process would be handled with great care, with the children, their families and staff being at the forefront of any process.

From initial discussions, it was clear that Kids Planet had a similar ethos and understanding, putting the children’s’ and team’s needs at the heart of their focus. Being a predominantly family-owned nursery group, their commitment to high quality childcare gave us the peace of mind that they will continue to build on and maintain the high standards we have strived to achieve.

Throughout the process, Kids Planet have lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We are confident the nursery is in the best hands. I would like to congratulate them on their continued success and wish them all the best for the future.”
