Tenure: Leasehold

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular baby and toddler nursery business in Brecon, Powys. The business was established by our client in 2000 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s personal reasons. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 215,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 96%.

The business was original registered to care for 18 children and due to the high demand in the area it acquired additional accommodation to allow the registered number to increase to 42. The nursery can accept up to 18 children under 2 years of age in the baby unit and 24 children in the toddler unit. The business boasts full and part time childcare at a very high standard, as well as a safe and secure private play area and full wheelchair access to the ground floor nursery and play area.

The nursery provides a combination of structured activities and free play periods all set within a planned curriculum, adapting the care and learning routine to the child`s needs to ensure they feel comfortable, relaxed and happy. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of care and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade and have been fitted to a high standard and are well-maintained throughout. We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular nursery business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Buttons Nursery occupies substantial stone-built two storey premises, ideally located within the centre of Brecon in Powys, Wales. The business is surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade, as well as many retail outlets and businesses. The business benefits from ample parking facilities within the area.
