Busy Bees acquires Jersey nursery group

UK childcare provider, Busy Bees, has acquired Organic Kids, a private provider with two nurseries in Jersey.

Organic Kids offers 124 places for children aged 0-5 years between its two locations at La Providence and Castle Quay.

The acquisition is Busy Bees' first in Jersey. The group now cares for more than 55,000 children across more than 600 nurseries in the UK, Ireland, Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Italy, Vietnam and Australia.

“We’re delighted to welcome Organic Kids to our growing family," said Cheryl Creaser, Busy Bees Europe CEO. "It’s vision for providing exceptional care is very much aligned with our own and we’re looking forward to continuing their great work. We will be working closely with the already established team and building on the high-quality service they provide in the stimulating environments where children learn, grow and flourish.”

Dawn Mclachlan, Organic Kids' former owner with her husband Bob, said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to have provided childcare to all of our children and to have worked with some dedicated and caring colleagues during the past eight years from when Organic Kids was established.

“It’s now time, after 25 years of providing childcare both here in Jersey and the UK, for me and Bob to take a well-earned break and hand over to what we consider to be the best nursery provider in the UK, Busy Bees.

"They have an excellent reputation for providing outstanding, quality childcare throughout the world. I am confident that our children and our staff team will be in excellent hands and I can only wish them the best from us both.”
