In short, none. To become a registered childminder with tiney - an Ofsted registered agency - the only qualification you’ll need is a desire to change children's lives. Our training will cover everything you need to know, from safeguarding to play-centred learning.

If you already have a background in childcare or education, you’re likely to find it an easy transition to tiney, but we want people from all walks of life to join our community of educators.
