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 nanny agency 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 Consultant

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 Ansell, Recruitment Manager

Faye Ansell

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 began as the 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. Since this, I have covered all areas of the business working on both the permanent and temporary recruitment. I was promoted to Senior Recruitment Consultant in 2016 where my focus was to oversee and encourage the temporary side of our business- nursery, creche, babysitting and Emergency childcare. I trained the new team members that joined Tinies and would support the Recruitment Manager in her absence. In January 2018, I was promoted to Recruitment Manager.

Catherine Croucher, Senior Recruitment Consultant

Catherine Croucher

Before joining the Tinies Recruitment Team I was working as a Private Nanny and have 14 years' experience working within the child care industry gaining my Diploma in Childcare and Education in August 2005. I was very excited to start a new career path with completely new challenges ahead and still be able to work within the childcare industry.

I started my position at Tinies in February 2016 as maternity cover running the Temp Nursery desk for Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. The job was very fast passed and I often wondered if I would cope with the amount of new information I was taking in. It was great getting to know the candidates that had worked for Tinies for many years and I had plenty of support from the team. I thought working as a nanny that my new job would be easy but I most certainly have been proven wrong. I survived the maternity position and took on a permanent position with Tinies in January 2017 I worked very closely with the Senior consultant in a shared role and was introduced to the world or permanent employment. I built many new relationships and there was a real buzz when finding a candidate their dream job!

Early 2018 I took on a new challenge and still continue to support nannies with temporary employment, working closely with local hotels providing a babysitting service and working with local authorities providing creches that run alongside parenting courses. In June 2018 I was thrilled to be promoted to Senior Recruitment consultant and I enjoy working closely with the branch manager.

Although I have been faced with various challenges along the way I find my job to be very rewarding and am lucky to work with a wonderful team of people. I have learnt so many new skills and still continue to do so through training. I have learnt a lot about myself along the way and how to deal with circumstances I would have never thought a recruitment agency would need to concur.

Roseanna Malden, Nanny & Nursery Recruitment Consultant

Roseanna Malden

I joined Tinies in December 2018 after previously working at 2 other nanny recruitment agencies in both London and Buckinghamshire. Prior to recruitment I completed my CACHE Level 3 Diploma in Children and Education and worked my way up to a room leader in a nursery. I then took a break from the nursery and went on to do a ski season in the French Alps where I worked as a nanny taking the children to their ski lessons and providing them with activities in their chalet. When the season came to an end I worked as a live-in nanny for a family from the season in Kent and after a year moved on to a live out position caring for 3 older children closer to home.

I have always wanted to work with children from a young age whilst looking up to my childminder whilst I was at school and always loved to be the eldest child helping out with the younger ones.

When I left the nursery, I decided to try an office-based position and found a great role working within a nursery chains head office in a customer care role which I then quickly changed roles to a be recruitment consultant for the nanny part of the business.

My role at Tinies Childcare is Permanent Nanny and Nursery Consultant, I register lots of great new candidates each week and liaise with new clients on the phone scheduling interviews for both nanny and nursery candidates.

Jodie Robison, Nursery Recruitment Consultant

Jodie Robinson

I joined Tinies Herts/Berks/Bucks in 2018 after previously being a nursery manager in the High Wycombe area. I qualified from Berkshire College of Agriculture in 2011 with an NVQ Level 3 in Children's Care, Learning and Development and then went on to achieve my Level 3 in Management in 2017.

I have just over 9 years' childcare experience of working within day nurseries where I was eager to progress and worked my way up from being a trainee nursery nurse to a room leader, deputy manager and then nursery manager and SENCO.

Whilst working within the day nursery environment, I managed staff and dealt with recruitment on a daily basis, therefore gaining a valuable understanding of some of the key attributes that nurseries require from their staff in order to provide exemplary care for the children in their settings.

I look forward to discussing your childcare requirements.

Georgia Allen, Junior Recruitment Consultant

Georgia Allen

I have recently joined Tinies in 2019 excited and eager to learn something new but still being able to be in the childcare sector.

Prior to working at Tinies, I have been in childcare in 5 and a half years. As soon as I left school at 16, I knew childcare was something I loved and wanted to do as a career. Working in childcare I gained my Level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education.

At the age of 16, I started as a nursery apprentice and worked my way up to a room leader of the 2-3-year olds. Working in a curiosity approach-based nursery it was great to learn something different and for me to constantly use my initiative and imagination and especially seeing how things like the curiosity approach can help the children learn and grow.

At Tinies Childcare, I am working alongside Catherine and Jodie for the Temp side for Herts, Bucks & Berkshire. I look forward to my role with Tinies constantly growing and working alongside this lovely team and learning lots of different things on the way.
