Knights’ Corporate team has assisted the nursery group N Family Club with its acquisition of three new settings.
N Family Club opened its first site in 2017 and its progressive and design-led nurseries now operate across seven London settings. The group is renowned for its inspiring approach and has a unique ‘N’ learning programme that is entirely bespoke to each child.
As well as developing each child’s personal and emotional skills, the ‘N’ day includes extra learning experiences such as yoga, Spanish, cookery, science, creative art and global citizenship.
As part of its strategy for growth beyond London, N Family Club has purchased nursery group Red Balloon which operates Ofsted outstanding settings in Cobham, Ockham and Weybridge. Founded in 2004 by Abby Auty and Caroline Ganjou the three nurseries provide 186 childcare places.
Speaking about the latest acquisition, N Family Club’s Chief Financial Officer Jon Temple said: “This was our first acquisition and the support and advice provided by Katie and the team at Knights was invaluable, balancing the legal requirements with a pragmatic approach to solving problems. We look forward to working together again.”
Katie Taken, Senior Associate at Knights said: “N Family Club is an ambitious and innovative business with a strong brand and unique culture. Its success across London is unparalleled and it’s been really exciting to support the group on its strategic expansion into the Home Counties.
From initial conversations with Red Balloon to deal completion, it’s been our privilege to support N Family Club and we wish Jon and the team every success with the new settings.”
