A DAY care nursery in the Holme Valley has been sold by administrators – saving 20 jobs.
Honley-based Carlin Nurseries Ltd has bought the business and assets of Jones Day Care Nurseries Ltd, which traded as Honley Day Care.
The private nursery, based at Queens Square Business Park, operated as part of Honley Preparatory School and had up to 114 children in its care.
Only the nursery school has been acquired. The school is being closed due to lack of profitability.
Administrator Chris Brookbank, of Batley-based insolvency firm O’Hara & Co, said: “Honley Day Care has a strong reputation in the area and it is pleasing to see this facility continue for local children, as well as jobs being saved.
“We hope it has a bright future as part of a larger group.”
Mr Brookbank said: “A big thanks must also be given to the teachers and parents for their understanding during the administration in ensuring that there was still a business to salvage.”
