Tigers Childcare Expands with Acquisition of Three Large Childcare Centres in Dublin

August 8th 2017

Tigers Childcare is expanding further across Dublin with the acquisition of three childcare services from a large multinational chain. The deal will bring another 400 children under Tigers Childcare’s services and more than double staff numbers from 54 to 112.

The centres are located in Balgriffin, Blanchardstown and Leopardstown and will add to the 10 existing Tigers Childcare centres, catering for over 700 children.

Speaking of the acquisition owner and CEO Karen Clince said: “As a passionate believer in providing the highest quality care possible, I am continually seeking new opportunities to bring Tigers Childcare’s high standards in childcare provision and staff training to even more children. In acquiring these three large centres we can cater for many more parents and children in these locations and are confident we have the requisite systems in place to manage and continue to develop premium childcare services for them.”

Starting with one after-school centre in Glasnevin in 2003, Tigers Childcare has gradually expanded to become one of Ireland’s leading providers of childcare and early years education.

As well as on-site pre-school and after-school childcare services within 8 school settings in Dublin, Tigers Childcare also provides full-day care services at purpose built early years centre in Swords in Dublin and Ashbourne in Meath.

The company’s commitment to staff training, together with its strong record of excellence and high standards among families has lead to exceptionally strong demand for its services, with mothers having to register their children’s name just after their pregnancy is confirmed.

Clince, the sole owner of Tigers Childcare, also chairs the Fingal Childcare Committee and is trained in the world-renowned ITERS and ECERS scales, for which only 50 people in Ireland are trained.

Tigers Childcare was advised by solicitor Mark Quinn and accountants Smith Williamson.
