* Under Offer * Intelligent is pleased to present the opportunity to purchase an incredibly popular pre-school in Kent.

Serving the local community for more than 15 years, Headcorn Pre-School has developed a fantastic reputation and is currently oversubscribed.

With 41 current registrations and an ample number of families on a waitlist, this is an extremely attractive acquisition for a buyer experienced in childcare.

Presently, the business charges £6 per hour in fees per child and possesses a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted.

It is renowned in the local community for providing the highest quality level of care in a wonderful setting, delivered by an exquisite team of friendly staff who work tirelessly to ensure all children are happy and safe in their development.

Intelligent is now searching for the right buyer who can take over this business by summer and continue its legacy of success.

The pre-school operates from Longmeadow Hall in the heart of the picturesque village of Headcorn in Kent. Families come in through the entrance into one large main hall, whilst kitchen and W/C facilities lead off from this space. All equipment is locked in a secure storage cupboard at the end of each day, adding superb convenience. A full inventory of equipment included in the sale is available on request.

The venue is hired at a rate of £8.50 per hour for 24 hours per week and 40 weeks per year under an ongoing agreement, rather than a formal lease. This agreement will be passed onto the buyer so that the new owner can continue benefitting from this great location. The pre-school runs 5 days per week, 3 days of which are from 9am-3pm and the other 2 days are 9am-12pm. A bridge club currently uses the hall for the latter two afternoons.

The owner is due to finish operating the pre-school in July 2021 and can be available to assist the buyer at the start of their ownership, if needed.

The ideal buyer for this business is a qualified and experienced nursery or pre-school staff member who is now looking to take their vocation to the next level by running a successful childcare setting of their own. With a brilliant reputation and a strong demand for the business’s services, the new owner will have great leverage to springboard their career.

The pre-school is presently oversubscribed, and many existing and waitlisted parents would significantly benefit from having the option of extended childcare hours. Additionally, the business currently only operates during term-time but there is considerable demand for childcare during the school holidays as well. By increasing the pre-school's opening times, the business can efficiently accommodate the needs of the area whilst also boosting its turnover and profit levels.
