Background Hungry Caterpillars opened in January 1999 in answer to Olivia Foley, the founders, own childcare needs and the inability to find high-quality child care in the local area. Developing an excellent local reputation the group has since expanded across West London into Ealing, Hillingdon, Buckinghamshire & Harrow. Hungry Caterpillars remains a family-run business that responds and develops services to meet the needs of families that it serves.
Working With You We realise that it is vital that we earn the trust and confidence of you, the parent, and that you are happy with what we do and how we do it. Working together we can produce happy, confident children who thrive and have every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Why Choose Us? Your child is the most important person in the world to you. They deserve to be encouraged, nurtured, supported and loved every step of the way. At Hungry Caterpillars we constantly ask ourselves “would we want this for our own children or family members?” It’s a great question that guides our practitioners, managers and senior team and ensures your child is at the centre of all that we do.
Our Vision At Hungry Caterpillars we believe that allowing children access to good quality pre-school education enhances their future life chances. It is a belief that is backed up by research and as such we genuinely want our nurseries to be the best and we want your child’s nursery experience to be a positive, meaningful and above all fun. In addition, we recognise that each child is an individual with their own specific needs. Our staff tailor each child’s care and learning plan to their individual requirements and create an environment that celebrates all that makes them a special individual.
