What is tiney?

Between birth and age five we learn more quickly than at any other time in our lives. Great childcare has a life-changing impact.

Research shows that the more similar childcare is to a child's family home, the more positive impact it can have. Small family-style childcare offers one-to-one attention and an easy environment for young children to settle into. This stability and personal attention mean they feel loved, learn quickly and develop the self-esteem they need to excel at primary school.

Tiney helps parents find amazing family-style childcare near them and makes sure their children are cared for, learn and have fun.

Complete peace of mind.

tiney home leaders are hand-picked and vetted to standards that go above and beyond Ofsted. All have background checks, insurance and paediatric first aid training.

    Educational and fun.

    Our approach to play-based learning is tailored to your child’s needs. Days consist of activities that spark imagination, with home-cooked meals and lots of outdoor play.

      A home away from home

      A home-based setting helps your little one settle in easily with a single adult they see every day. Small group sizes mean they get lots of attention and feel cared for and loved.

        As flexible as you need.

        Flexible childcare that fits around your schedule. Whether you need full-time childcare, school pick-ups for an elder sibling, or just a single morning covered, we’ll find you the right match.

          How it works.


          We meet each of our professionals at their home. We make sure every aspect of their setting and qualifications meet our 50 point Ofsted-approved quality check.


          Get a hand-picked shortlist of local childcare professionals with up-to-date availability. Simple, quick and convenient.


          Decide who you’d like to meet. Visit their setting and choose the best fit for you and your child.


          Stay in the loop with your child’s care with the tiney mobile app.

          tiney in The Times.

          Finding affordable childcare is a struggle for many working parents — so an arrangement that comes with nutritious sit-down meals, a ban on screen time and regular book clubs might seem like a pipe dream. Yet this is what the founder of Teach First is providing with a pioneering new app.

          Brett's Story

          Our CEO Brett formed tiney after 15 years leading Teach First, a charity that has worked with over a million children. He realised more support was needed for children from an even earlier age. He created tiney to help make that difference.

          The process of finding great local childcare is broken. Listings sites don't allow people to easily find providers or assess the quality of care or community their child will be a part of. We want to put the trust back in that process.
