Once you have passed registration, you’ll be able to create your tiney home profile within the app.

The profile builder allows you to create and edit your tiney profile page which appears on the website. Your profile page is a crucial tool for promoting your tiney home and a great way to give potential customers a window in to what’s great about you and your home nursery. As such, please take your time when creating the profile and give real thought and attention to giving an exciting and accurate picture of what you offer.

We will run through the content of a tiney profile and what you should include in each section.

Using profile builder

Tap on each of the headings to add details about your space, once complete preview and then submit your profile!


This section lets you can set your tiney home name, ages you cater for, as well as amenities, education and add some words to describe your setting.

Here you should provide a short summary of your tiney home nursery to engage potential parents, including the most important aspects of your home nursery such as its location, things you offer and amenities.

We’ve also made it easier for parents to see different areas of your space by organising photos into sections. Upload separate photos for your main space, play area, as well as places you visit and unique features. Read our top tips for taking photos.

Some edits you make to your profile will be approved by our community team before they are visible on the main tiney site. It can take a few hours before your changes are reflected on the tiney website. We’ve added this approval step to both make sure that everything you say is accurate for families, as well as being able to advise you on areas you might want to tweak or improve to help find more customers.

You won’t be able to make any edits whilst your page is waiting to be approved, however we aim to review these quickly at tiney.
