Nursery boss opening new care facility
A Bangor nursery school owner has invested in the purchase and development of new after-school care facilities, with support from Ulster Bank.
Julie Morrison, a former primary school teacher, opened Red Brick House Nursery School in Bangor in 2015 in an investment that was also facilitated by Ulster Bank.
The nursery business initially provided day care services for 10 children but, thanks to growing demand, this has since increased to 52.
Demand continued to exceed spaces available for both pre-school and after-school care.
Now, Julie has launched a new after-school childcare brand, R Space, following the acquisition of the former Primacy Day Nursery, based on Primacy Road in the seaside town.
More than £400,000 has been invested in R Space, including on the acquisition of the nursery and the renovation of its premises.
