Business Outlook

Childcare + Education

Courteney Donaldson Director, Childcare + Education

“ In 2011, day nursery transactional activity continued the stumbling pace of 2010. We witnessed an increase in one-off, confidential opportunities in the final quarter of the year, as vendors’ aspirations became more closely aligned with the prices buyers were willing to pay. Many nurseries reported a higher than normal dip in occupancy in September, which created some uncertainty. The beginning of 2012 will be crucial in setting the tone for the rest of the year — occupancy improvements in January could shape the landscape and make for a more optimistic deal environment.”
