Our mission.

We think childminders are the best childcare option for most families. They're more flexible than nurseries and offer a better learning environment than nannies do. Great childminders change children’s lives.

But eight childminders are leaving the profession every single day. That’s because too few get the support they need.

Our goal is to help parents connect with childminders near them. If more childminders get better support and feel part of a larger community, they’ll stay in the profession. Numbers will stop going down. And that means more children receiving the best care possible.

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.

    100% free to join.

    We sustain our business by charging a fee to any parents we match you to. There are no surprise charges or hidden fees when you join.

      Join a community.

      Access free local playgroups. Attend exclusive events created especially for you where you can meet other minders. Join a growing community of dedicated childcare professionals.

        No more late payments.

        We charge parents up front through our mobile app, so you get paid for your work in advance. That means you never work without getting paid. No more chasing up late payments from forgetful parents.
