Kid Inc opens £1m nursery in Burscough

Two Burscough nurseries have moved into one large bespoke site following a £1m investment, creating seven jobs.

Husband-and-wife team, Olawale and Moji Jones operate three other established nursery brands across locations in Blackpool, Blackburn and Bolton under the Kid Inc brand.

The new bespoke building will replace two existing Kid Inc nurseries on High Lane and Lordsgate Lane, with children and staff from both locations moving to the new premises.

The move will allow the couple to accommodate additional children, bringing total capacity up to 110 children and creating seven new jobs as a result.

Olawale Jones, co-owner and manager of Kid Inc, said: “Our nurseries offer children the opportunity to learn and play in a fun and safe environment. Through our existing sites, we have built a trustworthy reputation and established ourselves within the local community.

“The new premises will give us the opportunity to build on this solid foundation while providing the headroom to continue to grow. In addition to the wonderful team of twenty staff who will be moving to the new nursery, we’re looking forward to growing the Kid Inc family, and welcoming many more new faces."

“The Kid Inc brand has fantastic potential and it’s great to have been able to play a part in helping them to grow their business.”
