Description

The day nursery operates out of a pleasantly appointed, converted period building designed by our clients some years ago. The property lends itself perfectly to childcare, having separate pre-school and toddler rooms together with a baby sleep room. All the rooms have access to toilet facilities and outdoor play areas, and there is also plenty of office and storage space.

Location

Located in the popular seaside resort of Southport in a densely populated residential area. Due to the nursery's positioning there are excellent access links to all nearby towns and commercial industrial sites that have employees requiring childcare services.

Internal Details

The property features a reception hallway, pre-school room, toddler room, baby sleep room, a fitted and equipped kitchen, a separate washroom and toilet, and an attractive, glazed conservatory.

Fixtures & Fittings

We are advised that all fixtures and fittings are presently owned outright by our clients.

External Details

Well signed and attractively presented, the property has a good sized forecourt providing private and unrestricted off-road parking for three vehicles. At the rear of the property is a fully equipped and enclosed children's play area with a safety surface.

Owner's Accommodation

Located on the first floor is comfortable and convenient split level in-house accommodation, ideal for private or staff purposes. It comprises a large, open landing, a reception hallway leading to a fully fitted domestic kitchen/breakfast room, three good sized bedrooms and a fully fitted bathroom/toilet.

The Opportunity

The nursery was established by our clients in October 2004 and is currently operated with a full-time manager with the assistance of a full complement of staff. The opportunity is ideal for either a new or existing operator, or offering scope to develop the level of trade further. Current fee rates for the nursery are: full week £185, full day £39.50 and half day £22. Siblings receive a 10% reduction. Our clients have now taken the decision to sell the nursery due to alternative commitments.

Trading Information

The trading and profit and loss accounts provided by our clients for the year ending 30 June 2013 show a fee income of £206,731 with an adjusted net of £44,731. The business still offers scope to increase the turnover and adjusted net profit margin to approximately £63,000.

Trading Hours

The nursery currently operates from Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 6pm.
