How much money will you earn?
As a tiney home leader, how much you earn depends on how many children you want to take on, what hours you work and what you set as your hourly rate.
If you’re ambitious and have the right entrepreneurial spirit, you can make this into a well-paid career. Taking on three children full-time (i.e. for 40 hours a week) could see you earning more than £50,000 per year.

There are a few basic requirements but with some good planning and a bit of imagination, you can turn your space into a fantastic tiney home.
As a registered childminder, you must meet the following indoor space requirements:
When you become a tiney childminder your goal is to build a long-term, sustainable career you love that fits in with your lifestyle, but what does this look like in terms of hours?
For most of tiney homes, the minimum goal they aim for after the first two months is to be delivering around 60 hours of childcare per week.
Don’t panic - this doesn’t mean you’re working a 60 hour week! It could be looking after two children full-time for three days, or three children full-time for two days, or even offering four hours of wraparound care for three school children, five days a week.
