A Sheffield firm that specialises in property advice and valuations for doctors’ surgeries is expanding into providing advice for the nursery sector.

Ecclesall Road South-based GP Surveyors’ manager, Jacqui Johnson, said: “We recognise that many nursery providers cannot be expected to be property experts, yet there is huge pressure on nurseries to be able to manage their premises effectively and efficiently in an increasingly competitive environment.

“For example, how can they manage their premises in a way that keeps overheads to a minimum, how can they make best use of their space to increase income, does the nursery adhere to national health and safety standards, does it comply with the Disability Discrimination Act and Ofsted guidelines, what should a nursery entrepreneur be looking for when setting up a new nursery? The list of things to consider is endless.

“We believe that our specialist skills, market awareness and knowledge of D1 non-residential property means we can give Early Years providers the help and support they need to best manage their premises.”
