Earn £40,000 - and beyond
Once registered and with your vacancies filled, it's realistic to earn up to £40k per annum. But with assistants, you can earn even more than that.
You'll receive personalised support to launch a successful business with our in-house childminding experts, taking the risk out of starting up.
Flexibility and freedom
Childminding is a career where you're in control of your time and your curriculum. No bosses, no bureaucracy and no paperwork.
“[tiney] aims to revolutionise childminding by giving candidates intensive training, linking them to a support-network of other childminders and helping them to run their businesses.”
“[tiney] supports them with regulations, gives training, handles the business-admin, deals with the parents and runs the Ofsted inspections.”
“Music to the ears of any parent, desperate to find an appealing, affordable solution to their childcare woes.”
