Founded by a team of parents & education experts

At tiney we’re creating the type of early years education we want for our own families. Our CEO, Brett Wigdortz, previously spent 15 years leading Teach First, a charity that has trained over 10,000 new teachers to work with over a million children at primary and secondary school. Having realised that more support was needed for children from an even earlier age, and as a father of three, Brett brought together our superstar team of experts to create tiney.
