Who are tiney?

tiney is a tech-enabled childminding agency founded by the brains behind Teach First. We’re empowering a new generation of childminders to create successful home-based businesses and give more children high-quality early years care.

30 years ago, there were 100,000 childminders across England. Now there are only 35,000. We're here to reverse that trend. We provide all-in-one, unparalleled, professional support for every kind of childminder.

About the guide
In the Early Years, we have the privilege of working with children while they’re learning how the world works. We need to make the most of this opportunity to introduce them to other lives and perspectives, to help them to develop openness, empathy, and curiosity, and grow up to become inclusive, anti-racist adults. As a result, we offer this guide to the Early Years sector as a whole, in the UK and beyond. Although it was written for our community of registered tiney childminders, it is relevant for Early Educators of all kinds.
