Company News

12 March 2024

Kids Planet is delighted to announce the acquisition of Puddleducks Day Nursery in Warrington, located on the grounds of Woolston CE Primary School.

Positioned well with many existing Kids Planet locations, Puddleducks expands the group’s presence and offering in the North West area.

The nursery is vibrant and welcoming and each of the nursery rooms is specifically designed with children’s safety, fun and learning in mind.

Clare Roberts, CEO at Kids Planet, said:

“I am delighted to welcome Puddleducks into the group. Puddleducks has held an excellent reputation for high-quality childcare in the area, which they provide in a homely and engaging environment. With their child-centred approach, there are many synergies with Kids Planet and we look forward to supporting them moving forward as part of the Kids Planet family.”

Nigel Berry, previous owner of Puddleducks, said:

“Selling Puddleducks was an extremely difficult decision as we built it from the ground up in 1999 with our own children being the first to attend. We developed a fantastic team who give their all to the children. From our first meeting with Kids Planet, we felt that Puddleducks would be in good hands. Throughout the process, the Kids Planet team were welcoming and caring, sensitive to our circumstances and quick to respond to any queries. We are confident the team and families will be well looked after and we wish Kids Planet every success for the future.”

Kids Planet Day Nurseries has grown to 189 settings across the UK through a combination of acquisition and greenfield developments. Our focus continues to be acquiring existing nursery settings that fit with our values for the highest quality in childcare and seeking development opportunities to build our geographical presence.
