CC Nurseries Acquires Ninth UK Nursery Setting
CC Nurseries Group has purchased Peek-a-boo Nursery School in the Barnton area of Edinburgh, Scotland, bringing its total number of settings to nine.
The Nursery was originally set up by previous owner Sally Peek, who opened the Nursery in 1998 and offers places for 84 children aged 12 weeks to five years, with an impressive outdoor space.
CC Nurseries Group, which already provides exceptional childcare and learning experiences to over 800 families across southern England and Scotland, has officially taken over ownership of Peek-A-Boo Nursery School, effective from 1 November 2021.
Peek-a-boo Nursery will continue to operate under the safe hands of Nursery Manager Jennifer Gunn, who has worked at the Nursery for more than 15 years, with guidance from CC Nurseries Group senior manager for Scotland, Maxine Simpson-Smith.
CC Nurseries Group COO/Head of Nurseries, Andrew Clifford said:
“We would like to thank both Sally-Anne and Jen for their support during recent months as we have worked closely together to ensure a successful handover from 1st November. Peek-a-boo Nursery has been Sally-Anne’s life’s work for the past 23 years and we share so many of the same values and aspirations for our children and all our teams.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to build upon Sally-Anne’s legacy in continuing to provide the very best for the whole Peek-a-boo community and working with Jen and her team into 2022 and beyond.”
Peek-a-Boo is not the first acquisition for the CC Nurseries Group in Scotland, who also operate a second day Nursery in Edinburgh (The Murrayfield Nursery), as well as settings in Whitburn (Big Bird Nursery) and Glasgow (Pied Piper Nursery).
All three Scottish Nursery settings placed in a list of the top 20 Nurseries in Scotland for 2021, based on parent reviews, by daynurseries.co.uk; the UK’s leading Nursery review site.
The acquisition of Peek-a-boo follows a busy eighteen months for the group who also opened two brand new purpose-built Nurseries in England; The Marston Day Nursery in Bedfordshire and Wendover Day Nursery in Buckinghamshire in August 2020 and March 2021 respectively.
CC Nurseries group has recently been named as finalists in the upcoming Nursery Management Today awards in the Business Development Award category, to be held later this month.
