RSM advises on successful sale of leading Newcastle nursery

RSM’s M&A and private equity team has advised the shareholders of Brunton Day Nursery on the sale of the children’s nursery to Busy Bees, the UK’s leading childcare provider.

Julia Wilcock established Brunton Day Nursey in 2012, offering high quality, flexible childcare in Newcastle Great Park. Busy Bees has nearly 400 children’s nurseries across the UK and Ireland.

Steven Brown, corporate finance director at RSM, commented: ‘It has been a pleasure to work with Julia and the other shareholders on this transaction. Busy Bees’ nurseries are renowned for providing rich learning opportunities in unique and exciting environments, values which are shared by Brunton Day Nursery. Under new ownership, the nursery will continue to provide quality childcare to the residents of Newcastle Great Park.’

Muckle LLP provided legal advice to the shareholders. Busy Bees were advised by Mazars, gunnercooke and DLA Piper.
