Kids Planet bought Happy Day Nursery in June

The nursery group, which operates settings in the north and north-west of England, acquired Happy Day Nursery in Davenport, Stockport last month.

Re-named Kids Planet Davenport, the nursery, which was established over 40 years ago, is the group’s 19th setting, bringing the total number of places offered by Kids Planet to over 1,800.

The nursery group’s other settings are in Cheshire, Manchester and Liverpool, with 13 currently rated outstanding and five awaiting inspection. In last year's Nursery Chains, Kids Planet claimed the number one spot for quality.

Last August, Kids Planet’s chief executive Clare Roberts revealed to Nursery World plans to open five more sites over the next 18 months, as well as acquiring existing nurseries, after securing a £10 million investment from BGF.

Ms Roberts said, ‘We’re thrilled to have acquired Happy Day Nursery in Stockport and we will continue to provide the same outstanding childcare across each and every one of our nurseries.’
