Power Property brings to the market this fully operational creche, known locally as Stapleton’s Childcare. The property is offered for sale as a going concern as the current owners/operators intend to retire following many years of success here.
Established in 1996, this former nursing home was converted into a modern, well equipped, and certified childcare facility in 2003 and now has the capacity for up to 77 children. Stapleton’s Childcare is currently registered under the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE ) scheme and caters for pre-school children. Selling agent Claire Moran of Power Property notes there is excellent potential to further develop and expand this business.
Ms Moran also notes that the numbers in the free pre-school scheme have never been as high following a major expansion which extended the ECCE scheme to three-year olds. She added that demand for accessible, affordable, quality childcare is currently very strong nationally and that this demand is expected to continue.
Stapleton’s Childcare is a well-regarded business, located in the village of Craughwell and close to the towns of Loughrea (14km ), Oranmore (15km ), and Athenry (9km ).
The property comprises a single storey, detached, commercial premises extending to 324sq m. (3,488sq ft ). The accommodation includes a fully fitted kitchen, utility, toilet facilities, a number of play rooms, nurseries, sleep rooms, staff rooms, a changing room, and an office. The property has been well maintained throughout and the septic tank was just recently upgraded.
The site extends to 0.21 hectare (0.53 acre ) and benefits from an excellent profile onto the R446 (old Dublin Road ).
Ms Moran notes that by virtue of this property's village location and commercial planning, this property would also lend itself well to other commercial uses (subject to planning permission ).
Guide price is €495,000.
