Transitioning to Success: From Temporary Nursery to Permanent Nanny Role with Tinies 

by: Amelia Reeves-Tibbs, Tinies Kent


The Story

Growing up, this nanny always knew she wanted to work with children. She had gained experience in different nurseries, but soon realized that she needed more flexibility in her schedule and enjoyed meeting new people and exploring different environments. This led her to join Tinies. Initially, she worked with Tinies in various nursery settings daily. Eventually, she decided to become a nanny to broaden her opportunities and work directly with families one-on-one. 

The Challenge

Deciding to embark on a career in nannying, this nanny encountered a challenge as many families preferred candidates with prior experience in the role. 

Why Tinies?

This nanny chose to join Tinies because she sought a career in childcare that offered flexibility and exposure to diverse settings. This decision empowered me to select my preferred days and times of work, facilitating a balance between professional and personal commitments. Moreover, it enabled her to cultivate relationships with both staff and nurseries throughout Kent. 

The Solution

When she decided to pursue a career in nannying, she noticed that families preferred candidates with prior nanny experience. To build her experience and develop new skills, she joined the temporary nanny desk with Tinies. This allowed her to maintain regular daily work and accept shifts that suited her preferences for location, date, and time. Additionally, it broadened her experience by providing work which supported a variety of ages. This nanny balanced her role alongside work on Tinies Kent temporary nursery desk  

After spending two years on Tinies’ temporary nursery desk and one year on the temporary nanny desk, this nanny successfully landed a permanent nanny position with a wonderful family through Tinies’ assistance.  


This is her feedback: 

“Tinies supported me through every step of the process, alleviating my apprehensions about transitioning into my first permanent sole charge nanny role. Their guidance has been invaluable, readily available to address any queries and always ensuring I feel appreciated and valued.”
