Founded by David and Jacqueline Johnson, Just Childcare operates a group of day nurseries providing outstanding care to children up to five years old in high quality, well invested settings. Phoenix invested in 2014, having backed CEO David Johnson when he ran Acorn Care and Education (a Phoenix 2001 Fund investment).

our partnership

Phoenix committed significant further capital to support a buy and build across the highly fragmented children’s day nurseries market. Since Phoenix invested in 2014, Just Childcare has grown its number of sites by more than 5x.

"Quality is paramount in everything you deliver within the Childcare sector. Phoenix has that commitment to providing quality childcare, as we do, and the investment from Phoenix has provided an exciting opportunity for Just Childcare to extend its provision of nursery places to a greater number of parents.”

David Johnson, CEO Just Childcare
