Trusted tiney providers verified for quality & value.

Every provider working with tiney must pass an initial 50 point in-person quality inspection, as well as continually delivering against a set of ongoing customer service measures.

As we select providers to join tiney, we benchmark rates against a number of different national and local criteria, as well as helping them optimise their business costs. This approach ensures that we can offer a range of provider price points for most parental budgets. By doing this, our goal is to guarantee parents both provider quality and value.
