Six-figure funding deal secures future of nursery

A Nottingham business providing childcare for children aged two to five has bought a 2,000 sq ft nursery and hired two new childcare specialists, after landing a funding package from HSBC UK.

Ducklings Nursery has used a six-figure finance deal to purchase Beeston Nursery, located on Station Road in Beeston. The nursery offers childcare to over 100 local children and employs 13 staff members.

The deal secures the future of the business after the previous owner had decided to retire from the business leaving the future of the nursery in doubt.

Medusa Sojourn, owner and founder of Ducklings Nursery, said: “As a local resident myself, it is heartening to be able to provide a safe, supportive environment for Beeston children. I’m extremely grateful to HSBC UK for its support throughout this process.”

Dominic Edgar, relationship manager at HSBC UK, added: “Ducklings Nursery has a reputation for providing an excellent service to the local community. This commercial business loan from HSBC UK will help the nursery grow significantly, allowing more parents and children to benefit.”

Ducklings Nursery was established in 2009 when its first nursery opened in Sutton Coldfield. A second nursery was later acquired in Sandiacre.
