Claire Adams, Branch Owner
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.
Jenny King, Managing Consultant
I am a qualified Nursery Nurse with NNEB completed in 1997 and hold a Level 4 Certificate in Early Years Practice completed in 2007.
I began my career as a sole charge Nanny, shared between 3 families with children as young as newborn up to eight years old. In 2001 I went on to work for a National Nursery chain, Asquith Nurseries and progressed to Nursery Management level, which I held for several years.
I managed the Nurseries daily operation for a 100 place nursery with overall responsibility of a staff team of 25. I was responsible for all staffing and recruitment within the Nursery and recruited qualified Nursery Nurses, as well as training Nursery Assistants up to level 3 qualifications.
We provided high quality day care for children 3 months to 5 years during the day and an after school club for children up to the age of 8 years.
I am a mother myself to 2 children, and as a working parent I understand the importance of leaving your children with professional, capable childcarers. I am committed to sourcing the highest quality candidates to all Tinies clients.
If you're looking for the best childcare in Dorset, please get in touch.
