Caring for your child as though they were our own


"It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Hungry Caterpillar’s. As a parent first and foremost I recognise that you are looking not just for childcare, but for something extra special! I feel honoured to be able to share my idea of ‘special’ with you and your child and privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to this important part of their journey".

Olivia Foley, Founder and Director of Hungry Caterpillar

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.

Our Staff Team
We carefully recruit all of our staff to ensure they have the right qualifications and qualities to be a Hungry Caterpillar team member. Rigorous vetting procedures, follow up on references and a full police check ensures that all staff are completely fit for this important role. In addition, we offer all of our team on-going training, a great range of benefits, in-house and industry recognition and the opportunity to progress within the company. Our philosophy is happy staff make a happy nursery.
