By default, your nursery will be your name followed by 'tiney home' e.g. 'Leanne's tiney home'. This is because we believe using your own name makes your home nursery feel approachable and personal. However you can request a different name for your nursery if you feel a strong need to (although this will need to be approved by the team at tiney).

Things to consider if choosing an alternative name

  • Whatever name you choose, it will always be followed by 'tiney home' e.g. 'Shooting stars tiney home'

  • Please do not include the word "tiney" or "tiny" in your nursery name.

  • If you have a very long first name or one that proves difficult to spell or pronounce, consider using a nickname or a shortened version, so people remember it and can easily find you online

  • If not your own name, use a name that conveys some meaning – think of words that are simple, warm and use child-friendly language

  • Avoid hard-to-spell words

  • Make sure the name sounds good when said aloud

  • You're an early years educator, so be sure to follow conventional spelling rules e.g. avoid using 'z' instead of 's' or '4' in place of 'for'

  • Get feedback on your nursery name from friends and family to double check you've met the points mentioned above

  • If you do not want to have the same nursery name as another tiney childminder, please search on our website to see if the tiney home name already exists

Social media

When creating profiles on social media, such as Instagram and Facebook, be sure to include 'tiney home' in your profile description.

More importantly, this helps us find you and share your profile to a much wider audience!
