Our Story

The first Tigers Day Nursery was founded over 20 years ago by Alison Huntley who was unable to find the expert, quality childcare that she was seeking for her own children at that time. Since then the company has grown from strength to strength, establishing its own centre of excellence – The Tigers Training Centre, expanding into new settings and providing exceptional care and a safe, fun-filled learning environment for children aged three months to five years.

The Tigers Training Centre provides specialist childcare training for all our staff and for other nurseries in Berkshire. The centre offers a wide range of courses, including some for parents and we encourage our staff to continue learning to keep abreast of new ideas and best practice.

Whilst each nursery setting has its own unique atmosphere, all are managed by experts in the field of childcare, staffed by highly qualified, dedicated professionals and equipped with a wide variety of stimulating toys and facilities for the children.

Excellence in all aspects of childcare is what Tigers Day Nurseries strive to achieve. Every member of our staff is trained to the highest standard and is a qualified first aider. All are rigorously checked and registered with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS); many have been with us for years, giving continuity and a real ‘family feel’ to our nurseries; all genuinely love their work, bringing warmth, love and a feeling of security to the children in their care.

Care is a small word that means a great deal at Tigers Day Nurseries. We care about our children, keeping them safe and secure and treating each as an individual so that they can learn at their own pace and develop self-confidence, supporting their development while they simply play and enjoy their day’s activities; we care about our staff, providing ongoing quality training, mentoring junior members within each team and encouraging all to develop new skills and knowledge; we care about our parents, understanding their concerns, offering reassurance, keeping them involved and sharing their child’s day at nursery with them.
