PACEY is the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years - a standard-setting organisation, promoting best practice and supporting childcare professionals to deliver high standards of care and learning.

Our mission is to enable all our members to achieve the highest standards of care and learning for children and together build recognition of their professionalism.

PACEY’s Board of Trustees is made up the Association’s Chair and up to 10 trustees. PACEY’s staff team of around 160 is based across England and Wales and is supported by a senior management team.

Our volunteer members are key to gathering members' views and feeding them back to PACEY.
