We are delighted to reveal our latest acquisition of nine Mama Bear’s Day Nurseries, expanding our network into Bristol.
With over 600 childcare places and nurseries in Brislington, Hengrove, Bradley Stoke, Downend, Soundwell, St George and Hanham areas of Bristol, the latest acquisition takes Grandir UK to a total of 81 quality settings across London, the South West, Midlands, South, East and Central England.
Former owner of the 9 nurseries, Tony Driffield comments, “Our aim has always been to be the bridge between home and school by providing the highest standards of care and education and this has been achieved by providing stimulating, friendly, clean and safe environments whilst being sensitive and responsive to the individual needs of the children. I know Grandir UK are aligned on quality and this ethos and will be a great fit to continue what we have successfully achieved over many years.”
Lydia Hopper, CEO of Grandir UK comments, “A very warm welcome to all the children, families and the nursery teams! We are very much looking forward to meeting everyone over the coming weeks.”
“Tony and Bev have successfully crafted a stellar reputation providing childcare solutions to families in the local area since 2004. They have confidently left the nurseries in Grandir UK’s capable hands to continue to provide high-quality childcare where children will enjoy an enriched and unique range of education programmes. The nursery teams will reap the rewards of being part of a larger group with benefits such as a dedicated resource to professional development and access to the savings and rewards & recognition employee platform, GrandCentral. Thank you to Grant Thornton, who approached us with the opportunity and helped all parties throughout.”
