Our mission.

Our CEO Brett Wigdortz OBE formed tiney after 15 years leading Teach First, a charity that has worked with over a million children at primary and secondary school level.

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.

Children learn best through play.

At tiney, we take play seriously. Tiney home leaders foster a love of learning by providing an exciting, play-based curriculum, tailored to each child’s needs.

More one-to-one attention.

Low ratios of children to adults mean your child receives more attention and interaction than they would in a larger childcare setting like a nursery.

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.

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.

One of the things we hear most from families is that the process of finding great local childcare is broken. Listings sites don't allow people to easily choose between providers or assess the quality of care or community their child will be part of. We want to put the trust back in that process.
