Nanny and babyBeing a nanny is one of the most rewarding and worthwhile jobs you can do. If you love being with children, are dedicated to keeping them safe and happy, and are interested in educating and stimulating them to prepare for later life then becoming a nanny could be the ideal career for you.

Nannies are childcare professionals who work at the home of one family at a time, and are employed by a parent rather than being self-employed. Because they are employed by parents, and work in the family home, nannies are very different from registered childminders.

How to become nanny member of PACEY

Child safety is paramount for nannies and PACEY. That is why we insist that all our potential members have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formerly known as CRB disclosure), paediatric first-aid, and basic childcare training.

Nannies wishing to join PACEY can do this in two ways:

  • Join PACEY and register as a nanny with Ofsted in England or the Childcare at Home Approval Scheme in Wales. More information here
  • Acquire a DBS check (formerly CRB disclosure) independently as well as undergo paediatric first-aid training and join as a non-registered nanny by calling 0300 003 0005.

Only parents employing nannies who have joined the voluntary schemes can receive the childcare element of working families tax credit. In England, Ofsted inspects a random selection of people on the Childcare Register to ensure they comply with the requirements for membership of the register.
