The nursery group has agreed a 15-year lease with Sorbon Estates for Cliveden Nursery in Maidenhead. 

The deal brings the number of nurseries owned by the chain across Buckinghamshire and Berkshire to six.

Poppies Day Nurseries already owns sites in Bourne End, Old Windsor, Marlow, Beaconsfield and Holmer Green.

The nursery building, located at Cliveden View Shopping Centre, just over a mile from the centre of Maidenhead, has been newly built to incorporate 4,900 square foot of indoor space, as well as a large outdoor play area with sunken sandpit, and a spacious and secure first floor terrace.

The new Cliveden Nursery, which will have places for up to 75 children and employ at least 25 members of staff, will officially open in August.

Poppies Day Nurseries is owned and directed by Anne Fox and Linda Hill, who first met when working as nursery nurses at Maidenhead Nursery School.

Ms Hill said, ‘We are very excited to be opening our new nursery in this beautiful purpose-built property and have enjoyed working closely with Sorbon Estates.

‘We are passionate about providing high quality education and care at all Poppies’ sites and are proud of the reputation we have built during the past 12 years. We can’t wait to welcome children into this wonderful child-centred environment.’

Des McGuckin, head of projects at Sorbon Estates, added, ‘Poppies has an excellent reputation in the area, so we are delighted that they have agreed to a 15-year lease at Cliveden Nursery.

‘Every classroom has been designed to comply with Ofsted regulations with each room being tailored for the children’s age group. Building security is also paramount so it has a door entry system and separate lobby to maintain the children’s privacy and safety.’
