Tigers Childcare

Tigers is one of the leading childcare platforms in Ireland offering full-day, school wrap around and early stage care from 14 sites in Ireland, and one in the UK.

Company overview

Tigers Childcare (“Tigers”) was established in 2003 when Karen Clince, a teacher at St. Vincent’s C.B.S. in Glasnevin, Dublin responded to demand for high quality after-school provision for children of working parents. In 2003 the company opened its first after school care centre for 12 children at St. Vincent’s C.B.S. in Glasnevin. The company has grown steadily in the last 14 years and currently caters for over 1,200 children in the greater Dublin region.
