It’s the end of an era as a nursery in Hemel Hempstead has been sold to new owners.
Moor End Farm Day Nursery, in London Road, Boxmoor, was launched nearly 30 years ago by husband-and-wife team Sherryl and Mac McMichael, who have now retired.
Sherryl launched the nursery after previously running a thriving childminding business.
The pair have sold the business, which cared for children aged three months to five years, to Kindred Nurseries, one of the UK’s leading nursery groups.
Kindred CEO Ruth Pimental said: “We are thrilled that Moor End Farm has joined our growing Kindred family.
“Sherryl and Mac’s passion was evident from the start. They were keen to know that the nursery would continue to be looked after and further developed.
“We are looking forward to working closely with the Moor End Farm team over the coming months as we warmly welcome them into our family.
“It will bring opportunities for our family to continue to grow and flourish towards our goal of being the very best childcare provider in the UK.”
