Kinderbear Nursery in Padiham is joining Kids Planet after a recent acquisition which takes Kids Planet Day Nurseries to 115 settings within the group.

The Lancashire nursery has been owned by Alison and Brian Pulleyn since April 2002. They believe in a hands-on approach to running the nursery, assisted by a professional staff team and stimulating environment.

Kinderbear nursery provides quality childcare for children from birth to 5 years old, following a child-centred approach which ensures that each child is respected as an individual to develop their confidence.

Clare Roberts, CEO at Kids Planet, said:

“I am delighted that we have completed on the wonderful Kinderbear nursery, after seeing many synergies with Kinderbear in the joint values for quality childcare provision and keeping children’s best interests at the heart of everything they do.

As a growing, dedicated group, and I am really excited to watch them integrate and develop and looking forward to supporting the nursery with their transition into our Kids Planet family.”

Alison and Brian Pulleyn, Former owners, said:

“Selling our beloved Kinderbear was always going to be a wrench for us after 20 years in business, we never doubted that. However, from the moment we met Kids Planet we felt an instant warmth. Despite being large, they have maintained a family values ethos that is close to our hearts and something we have always been proud of with our own nursery.

We were delighted to agree a deal and they delivered on their word – the whole sale process ran smoothly and we felt supported throughout. We are certain we found the right home for Kinderbear and it will continue to grow and flourish under Kids Planet. We wish them every success!”
