How it works

Working closely with Tinies Daycare, your company will take a number of spaces at a local nursery site to your office to offer to your employees. Tinies Daycare will manage the regulatory requirements and work with you to effectively fill your spaces. You will need to take part in the management and financing of the nursery.

When an employer establishes a workplace nursery partnership with us, they are able to utilise the Workplace Nursery exemption - enabling working parents to save 32% -42% on their nursery fees. There are specific criteria to meet the exemption.If eligible, employees can benefit from the considerable savings that a workplace nursery scheme has to offer.

As an employer, the cost of set-up and management of a workplace nursery will be funded by savings made in Employer National Insurance contributions.

What is the company's commitment when setting up a workplace nursery?

  • To qualify for the HMRC exemption, the employer must either set up their own qualifying workplace nursery premises or they can take space within an established nursery.



  • The latter requires the employer to commit long-term to participating in the management of and financial support for the setting.

  • The number of places taken by the employer must be significant - we recommend a minimum of 10 places.



  • Tinies Daycare can partner with you in either case, bringing our extensive regulatory and management expertise to bear, making a complicated technical project straightforward.



  • Nursery places available must be available to ALL employees at a given location and places must be allocated on a fair basis.

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.
