What is a childminder agency?

tiney is regulated by Ofsted, meaning we are licensed to train, support and quality assure our tiney childminders (you can read our recent glowing Ofsted report here!). Our childminders are self-employed, but we work with them to set up and run amazing, sustainable, successful businesses.

As self-employed professionals, our childminders are in charge of their business decisions, such as agreeing contracts with families, but tiney are there to support and regulate their work, and can mediate when needed. This means both childminders and the families they work with have peace of mind.

We’re also proud to champion childminding and help our members develop and grow! tiney provide heaps of ongoing professional development, and ensure all our childminders are part of an incredibly supportive and fun community of fellow early years professionals.
