The Breakfast club was opened in 2000 and was renamed The Tiger Club by vote from the children who attended the club and to link with the Holmfirth Junior, Infant & Nursery school logo, which is based on Fenella the Tiger who lived near the school! The children wanted to be “tiggers”, and as they grew, “tigers”
Although located in the grounds of Holmfirth Junior, Infant & Nursery school, Holmfirth Tiger Club is an independent non-profit-making organisation. Any profit made through fees is put back into the club and spent on the children and/or club provisions. It was because of this, the club was able to build the current Tiger Club building with funding and finances from families using the club.
The club is managed by a committee of enthusiastic and passionate volunteers, many of whom are parents at the school. It is run on a day-to-day basis by dedicated Tiger Club staff who have a range of qualifications and are passionate about the job. The Tiger Club is regulated/inspected by OFSTED.
The committee and staff are dedicated to providing a safe, secure and fun environment with a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere for all the children who attend the club.
