Happy Jays to set sail in Harrogate
11:50am Monday 16th September 2013 in Business news
THE purchase of a Harrogate nursery has seen a York-based childcare group grow its business.
Happy Jays has acquired the 60-place Setting Sail nursery in Killingham, which will now become part of the group owned by husband and wife team Tony and Jacqui Gernon.
Happy Jays has nurseries in York, Scarborough, Boroughbridge and Batley and provides employment for more than 125 child-care professionals.
Mrs Gernon said: “We are very pleased to be purchasing Setting Sail nursery and we would like to thank former owner Sue and her team who have done a fantastic job over the years.”
Setting Sail is currently rated as Outstanding by regulatory body Ofsted and Happy Jays saw both its York and Boroughbridge nurseries achieve this top accolade earlier this year.
The Inspector praised Happy Jays staff for providing “a rich, varied and imaginative educational programme with precise assessment and planning for individual children”.
