August 2023: Nurseries M&A Snapshot


A snapshot of mergers & acquisitions activity across the day nurseries market covering the 12 months to 31 August 2023.

Our snapshot of deal activity across the day nurseries market covering the 12 months to 31 August 2023 can be seen above.


Key takeaways are as follows:

  • Geography: deal activity continues to be weighted towards the South East, however the West Midlands and North West also remain very active.

  • Nursery Sizes: almost 40% of transactions related to nurseries with 50-75 places.

  • Groups vs Individual Nurseries: whilst individual nursery sales still account for the majority of transactions, there is growing demand for the acquisition of small groups. Group acquisitions accounted for 34% of transactions in the 12 months to 31 August.

  • Ofsted ratings: corporate acquirers remain almost exclusively focused on settings with "Good" or "Outstanding" ratings.
