Nurseries M&A Update: Summer 2023


A report highlighting mergers & acquisitions activity across the UK nurseries and early years sector.

The UK early years market remains highly fragmented and continues to see strong deal activity, with quality small to medium-sized regional groups being particularly sought after. ​


UK-based mid-market private equity firms continue to play a key role in this, however international interest has been a core theme in recent years, with three of the largest nursery groups now owned by European operators​.


While consolidation will continue going forward, we expect deal activity from these larger groups to be centred around premium settings in affluent areas of the country​.


Our nurseries M&A update report for 2023 provides an overview of the key opportunities and challenges facing the sector, along with a summary of key deal activity and the active acquirers.
