The Daisy Chain
The Daisy Chain offers an online platform to connect Parents with employers to enhance their careers and work-life balance.  Tinies Childcare can offer Daisy Chain parents support with their childcare needs.

"Childcare is crucial to parents like me.  And to the parents who find jobs via The Daisy Chain. Deciding who looks after your child while you're at work is one of the hardest decisions new parents have to make and being confident with that choice is not easy.  Certainly not in the early days. To be able to be a childcare professional - to be chosen to be part of a child's life and to help them grow - is one of the most valuable jobs out there," Louise Deverell-Smith, Founder, The Daisy Chain.

Just to say all of your Tinies staff were fantastic and the crèche was excellent on our wedding day. It wasn't an easy job to do, particularly the meal - always challenging when you have a bunch of 4 year olds to look after. But your staff coped magnificently and it all went very well. The babysitters on the night before our wedding were also very good, as was our dedicated nanny for the day. Thank you very much for organising everything, we will happily recommend Tinies crèches.
