Burntwood business expands with purchase of six more nurseries

A Burntwood-based business has expanded with the purchase of six nurseries.

Busy Bees has acquired the Wirral-based sites of Daisy and Jake Day Nursery.

It means the company now operated 359 UK nurseries as part of more than 500 it runs across the globe.

Marg Randles, chief academic officer and co-founder of Busy Bees, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to add Daisy and Jake Day Nursery to our growing family.

“Our philosophy and passion has always been and always will be to deliver local provision to local families, and we work hard to ensure each nursery runs on its own merit with its own specialised and dedicated staff team in place.

“Over the past 35 years, we have been dedicated to providing outstanding opportunities for children to give them the very best start in life. Our success has been down to the people in our nurseries and we are very much looking forward to working with Daisy and Jake and their team of dedicated and passionate staff.”

Lisa Collins, former owner of Daisy & Jake, added: “After 14 years building our nursery business, we have decided that now is the right time to hand over the reins.

“I am confident that in Busy Bees we have chosen the ideal partner who will maintain the values and ethos we have all worked so hard to achieve.

“I know they will preserve the things that make Daisy and Jake so special and continue to provide quality childcare and excellent staff support.

“The future of Daisy and Jake is bright, and I will be proud to watch the business continue to go from strength to strength under its new owners.”

    So it isn’t our local Busy Bees that purchased it, it is the multinational conglomerate that has a cosy image and is in fact owned by the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, with the previous management holding a majority share. So another non-British business actually.
