LaingBuisson’s comprehensive study into the UK’s childcare market. Sixteenth edition. Published 23 March 2020. (282pp).

“We believe that the childcare market will remain attractive to investors. Many are attracted because childcare is viewed as a socially responsible market to be in, but opportunities equally lie in earnings per share being accretive (namely, a nursery is worth more as part of a group) and there is strong support from debt providers. There are also opportunities for growth by outperforming the market by making better commercial decisions and the potential for internationalisation. There is also the opportunity to scale by means of new developments and by ‘organic’ growth and diversification.

 “There are, none the less, lessons to be learned from what has happened in the past two decades. Growth is not a given for investors and there is certainly a danger in growing too quickly. Some have failed by not understanding how to operate at scale and also not realising the potential impact of changes in the regulatory environment.”

The 16th edition of LaingBuisson’s Childcare UK Market Report is vital reading for anyone involved in this highly competitive sector of the UK economy, be they providers, investors or advisors to the sector.
