About Teepee Day Nursery
The Owners - David and Emma
I’m Emma Tennant, and I set up Teepee Day Nursery, Bracknell in 2003. At the time, I wanted to go back to my job at Johnson & Johnson, but couldn’t find a good enough nursery locally. My husband David and I bought the nursery when Phoebe was 18 months and I was pregnant with Ben. Both children went through Teepee before moving on to school. I have always had a passion for providing the very best care for babies and children. Before having children, I trained as a nurse and a midwife. More recently, I completed a postgraduate diploma in Early Years and a Master’s in Education at Reading University. David brings his health & safety expertise to the nursery. He’s a Health & Safety consultant, and has worked on major infrastructure projects such as Hinkley Point nuclear power station and HS2. His current project is the restoration of the Houses of Parliament. Busy as he is, we make the most of his corporate expertise on policies, procedures, audit, and current thinking on H&S matters.
Award-winning including Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ The Ofsted inspection for Teepee Day Nursery Bracknell in July 2019 (and the two previous inspections) judged us to be ‘Outstanding’ – the highest rating that a childcare provider or school can achieve.

At Teepee Day Nursery Bracknell, we take the utmost care of your children. The children are looked after in small groups. We have a stable, caring, hand-picked team, and we never use agency staff – not ever. And we have a dedicated admin team, which frees up our manager and our practitioners to be with the children. These are some of our values: Feeling safe, feeling heard: When children feel safe, cared for, nurtured and loved, they thrive. Always learning: We encourage the children to learn and grow by providing their first formal education. Being healthy & well: We make sure the children are healthy by providing nutritious food, a clean and tidy setting, and lots of opportunity to run around.
