Claire Adams, Branch Owner

Claire Adams

I am qualified with a BTEC National Diploma in Nursery Nursing 1993-1995 and have trained as a Midwife at the University of Hertfordshire in 1997-1999.

I started out my career at Tinies as a Childcare Consultant back in January 2000, and have been responsible for launching and establishing franchises in the Home Counties. I have a staff team of 11 to help support and manage our daily operation.

I now own and run 5 Tinies Franchises acquiring my first franchise in May 2004 with Tinies Hertfordshire. I went on to buy Tinies Buckinghamshire in June 2006 and then in May 2008 I bought Tinies Berkshire Nurseries. In May 2009 I took over Hampshire & West Surrey leaving my most recent acquisition for 2010 to be Tinies Dorset, making me the single largest Tinies franchisee in Tinies history.

We believe Tinies' Vision is to provide the very best nannies and childcarers to our clients, and to be trusted to deliver on that promise. In addition, we must influence and shape the future of the childcare industry.

Internally as a company we are committed to being the preferred supplier for our clients, outshining our competitors, and growing our business year on year.

We deliver a professional, personal and proactive service to find the right childcare solution for our clients. Safety is paramount, and therefore we guarantee all Tinies childcarers undergo vigorous interviewing and screening.

Lauren Young, Childcare Administrator

Lauren Young

I joined Tinies Bucks/Berks in 2011 after setting up my own business running a bridal shop in Ascot since April 2007. I qualified from East Berkshire College in 1996 with my NNEB and went on to achieve my NVQ Level 4 in Early years Management in 2002.

I have just over 8 years experience of working within childcare, 5 of which were spent in nurseries where I started as a nursery nurse.

I was keen to progress and have always enjoyed working with children from a young age enabling me to work my way up the nursery ladder quickly to become a nursery manager before embarking on a career as a nanny of 4 children.

Whilst working within the day nurseries I managed staff and dealt with recruitment on a daily basis, therefore have good knowledge of Early Years establishments and have gained a valuable understanding of what nurseries require from their temporary and permanent staff in order to provide the best childcare services possible.

I look forward to discussing your childcare requirements.

Faye Ricketts, Recruitment Manager

Faye Ricketts

I joined Tinies in 2014 after gaining previous childcare recruitment experience in the Thames Valley. Prior to recruitment, I was based in a Montessori Day Nursery setting where I spent my first 8 years after qualifying and gaining my level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education. During this employment I was promoted to Room Leader and held additional responsibilities in the absence of the deputy manager. During my time at the nursery, I achieved my Advanced level Apprenticeship in Management and Speech and Language Level 3 Support for Under 5s.

My passion for childcare and all aspects that came with working with children grew in my time at the nursery. I took on extra role such as the Events Co-ordinator, mentor for students and new staff and completing staff rotas, training programmes etc. My role as Events Co-ordinator helped me to develop my confidence as I had to work closely with a variety of departments within the large computing company, to ensure all areas such as health and safety, risk assessments, food and security were met for each event. This is where my love for organising events began!

My role at Tinies Childcare is Events Planner for Herts, Bucks & Berkshire, where I work closely with the temporary team in providing crèches that support parenting courses for Local Authorities, and to provide pop up event crèche services for weddings, corporate events and festivals.

Of all the agencies I dealt with, Tinies was by far the best. As someone new to finding a nanny, they were so good in helping me through the process, they guided me through every step and ensured that the CVs were relevant.
