Nursery Settings
Start Quote We spent some time today in your Exeter store where my two young children took advantage of the 1-hour free supervised playtime in your play area. One of my sons is autistic. I just want to say how impressed I am with care and consideration we received for him from your care staff in the play area. They asked for everything they needed to know about my son and played with him and supervised him in an excellent manner. He has been talking nonstop about Alice since we left and wants to come back again soon. I cannot express how happy this experience has been for him, please pass on my feedback to Alice I hope she is recognised for her service she truly is an asset to your company. End Quote

Contract: Gloucestershire College

Tinies Daycare took over the management of Gloucestershire College nurseries in November 2014 to allow the college to focus on its core business. Over the last 5 years, we have grown the nurseries and built a great relationship with the children, the parents and the college.

Gloucestrshire College

The Brief: To provide nursery services that focus on the safety, security, welfare and education of the children.  The service was designed to meet the needs of both college staff and students, whilst also attracting the local community.

Type of contract: Management Contract

Length of contract: Ongoing since November 2014.

Delivery: Monday to Friday, year round.

Tinies Daycare Deliverables

Gloucestershire College provided Tinies Daycare with the premises and we have done the rest, meaning we are responsible for:

  • Recruiting the team (and/or TUPE)
  • Full personnel management and ongoing development and training
  • Registering with Ofsted & meeting all regulations
  • Delivering educational programme for Early Years
  • Dealing with parents who contract directly with Tinies Daycare
  • Managing full accounts and debt process
  • All customer retention and acquisition activities in greater numbers and look at ways of increasing the profitability at the Nursery.

Benefits of Working with Tinies Daycare

Our unique approach to partnership attracted the college to work with us. The Tinies Daycare model is different to most childcare operators as we prefer to work in partnership with our clients. We seldom work on a straight lease option, preferring to use a profit share model, as we find childcare facilities often work better when both parties 'buy in' and have a vested interest in their continued success.
Since taking over the Nurseries we have:

  • Promoted Colleague development and personal mastery across the sites, including supporting a number of Colleagues in their efforts to complete degrees and apprenticeships - one such student received Apprentice of the Year.
  • Built a strong relationship with the College
  • Implemented a diverse range of extra-curricular activities, including Forrest School.
  • Expanded the Cheltenham nursery to take an additional 12 children.
  • Successfully implemented an ICT programme, including Smart boards and computers across both nurseries.
  • Hold an Ofsted rating of Outstanding at the Cheltenham setting, due to the superbly innovative practices of the team.
  • Implemented management software which included invoicing, which has allowed us to look at occupancy in greater numbers and look at ways of increasing the profitability at the Nursery.
