Experienced operator expands children's day nursery portfolio

Nicola Westwood, an experienced childcare operator based in the Midlands, has recently purchased the freehold of Tiny Toez @ Nutwood in Staffordshire with funding secured by specialist commercial finance broker, Christie Finance.

Tiny Toez @ Nutwood is an established children’s day nursery with capacity to accommodate up to 48 children, currently operating as part of a group in the region, complete with a ‘Good’ Ofsted rating. Nicola currently owns and operates Tiddlywinks day nursery, which will be merged with Tiny Toez as part of a wider restructure.

Nicola is an experienced childcare provider, owning and operating two existing nurseries in the West Midlands. Having successfully operated her existing leasehold nurseries for several years, the subsequent step for Nicola was to relocate her existing businesses into freehold properties; encouraging the purchase of Tiny Toez @ Nutwood.

Stuart Pawelczyk, Director at Christie Finance Corporate worked with Nicola to secure funding. He comments “Nicola is an experienced multi-site operator with an abundance of experience in the childcare sector, identifying her as the perfect fit as the new owner of Tiny Toez @ Nutwood. Nicola has a clear vision for how she can take the business forward, amalgamating her existing nursery business with Tiny Toez @ Nutwood to deliver a first class childcare service. I wish her the best of luck for the future.”
