Peek-A-Boo Nursery in West Yorkshire now in teachers’ hands

Specialist commercial finance broker, Christie Finance, has assisted two primary school teachers in acquiring Peek-A-Boo Nursery in Batley, West Yorkshire.

The day nursery has space for 54 children ranging from three months to five years and obtained a 'Good' rating in a recent Ofsted inspection. The business is set within a converted stone property and offers an enclosed outdoor play area and an additional plot of land for potential development.
The new owners are Lucy and Andrew Patrick, both first time nursery buyers but have a wealth of experience with Lucy working in primary education for 17 years and currently as a Head Teacher at a local school. Her husband, Andrew also works as a teacher in a primary school and was recently noted as a 'Leader in Education'.
Lucy and Andrew were looking for a day nursery to run and found the perfect opportunity to buy after the owners of Peek-A-Boo decided to retire from the sector and put the business up for sale. They approached Jawad Anjum, Finance Consultant at Christie Finance, to help them with arranging the funding to purchase the business.
Commenting on the deal, Jawad said, “I am delighted to have helped Lucy and Andrew to acquire this nursery. They are the perfect individuals to take this business forward and already have lots of plans such as holiday and schools clubs to take the business even further.”
