Babilou Group Middle East acquires one of the most established nurseries in Dubai; Seashells Nursery.
When asked why it was a strategic choice to acquire Seashells Nursery, Lama Chivi, CEO of Babilou Group in the Middle East highlighted “quality is one of the attributes that really differentiates us, and we found that Seashells Nursery had an outstanding reputation for its quality service and offering”.
Not only did the two companies see eye when it came to their educative mission and level of service, but most importantly they both embodied strong values when achieving social and economic performances.
Similarly, Xavier Ouvrard, Global CEO shed light on the group’s vision and inspiration; “we started a special journey in the UAE back in 2014 where we discovered like-minded people and nursery owners fully dedicated to offering families ethical and smart care for their children. We are proud to add Seashells Nursery under our umbrella and promise to grow it even further”.
Meanwhile, Zeina Ghantous, the founder and director of Seashells Nursery since 2006, talks to her families and staff about their new adventure: “What makes this new chapter in our lives very exciting, Seashells Nursery and mine, is that I am proud to announce that the nursery will now have a fantastic opportunity to grow and become a part of a large successful international group of nurseries. We are honored and excited to now belong to Babilou Group Middle East”.
Babilou Group was set up in Dubai in 2014 and opened 4 Babilou nurseries. The group acquired The Blossom Nursery in 2017 and Inspire Nursery in 2018 to become a network of 11 nurseries across Dubai and Abu Dhabi. It is with the acquisition of Seashells that the group reconfirms its expansion strategy in the region.
