The Tinies Family

Providing peace of mind for parents and carers since 1975

Tinies is a family of passionate people committed to children with more than 45 years of experience helping parents and carers find their perfect match

Hiring a nanny or finding the best nursery can feel overwhelming. It's only natural that parents express fears about someone taking over their role, even if it's for a few hours. At Tinies, we take great pride in what we do. Because safety is our first concern, we take background screenings very seriously. If you feel like you could do with some help, let us know. 

We're glad to think of all our carers as part of our big family. We welcome nanniesmothers' helpbabysittersmaternity nurses, and more, for families in the UK and overseas. We help you find real chances to grow in the childcare industry. Ask us about our training and learning programmes to make the most of your career. 

Welcome to our family. 

A local and personal childcare service

The Tinies team provides a tailored and professional service. We do know how good childcare looks like and what both parents and childcarers need. 

The Tinies family comprises the largest pool of childcarers in the UK (50,000 and counting).

Whether you're looking to hire a nanny, arrange a wedding crèche, or explore maternity childcare options, the Tinies team will guide you every step of the way.

In 2019, Tinies became part of the Bright Horizons® family.

Bright Horizons is trusted to provide children and families with exceptional care, education and family solutions. With over 300 nurseries and pre-schools in the UK, and a wealth of experience, we're proud to be recognised for excellence in childcare and early education.

Bright Horizons invests time, focus and resources into creating specially designed nurseries that provide productive learning and play environments, empowering children to be happy and confident with a love of learning and ready for school.

Bright Horizons has been recognised as one of the Best UK Workplaces since 2006 by the Great Place to Work Institute and achieved a Gold Award from RoSPA every year since 2011.

It's Bright Horizons' mission to continue to make a positive difference to children, families and employers and to be the employer of choice in our sector.

The staff at Tinies were very helpful and considering that our brief was quite specific I was pleased at the number and quality of candidates they could find. Going through Tinies saved a lot of time and energy (which can be in short supply for a new parent).
