kidsunlimited is a provider of day-care facilities for under fives, with nurseries on business parks, major commuter routes and workplaces. kidsunlimited delivers a premium care offering in purpose built or designed settings and has consistently innovated its curriculum, including gardening club, “Soccer Tots” and baby yoga.
Preparing a nursery model for the next stage of growth:
- We successfully helped roll out new nurseries in its core regions of the North West, Oxford, Cambridge and the South East. kidsunlimited had grown from 32 to 50 nursery sites at the point of exit.
- Adam Holloway, partner at Livingbridge, said at exit, “This has been a very rewarding investment for Livingbridge. We helped the founders transition the business, building a professional management team capable of scaling a successful nursery model in a changing marketplace.”
- Turnover increased from £8m in 2001 to in excess of £30m in 2008
“We have enjoyed a very productive relationship with Livingbridge who have helped the company through a period of sustained growth and internal change.”
