Educational premises: children's day nurseries

Most children's day nurseries in the UK provide full day care services for 38, 50 or 52 weeks of the year, primarily for children under the age of 5 years. Full day care is defined as continuous childcare provided at any time (day or night) on premises that are defined as 'non-domestic' premises. The vast majority of businesses trade for the length of the adult working day, ordinarily between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, though some do offer overnight and weekend care. Children's day nurseries in the UK are highly regulated.

Factors affecting nursery valuation include the property, the business, financial performance and the market. Instructions and assumptions detail other relevant matters.
