Membership card

Membership of PACEY opens the door to extensive member benefits. All designed to make your life easier and help you feel more confident in your work.

With your membership card, you have a physical reminder of your membership details. This will be useful if you ever want to buy products on our shop at a discounted member rate, or can be used as a reference if you call our lovely membership services team. With your membership card, you can also show this as proof of membership in certain local groups who offer discounts for PACEY members, for example, in local soft play centres.

As part of your PACEY membership, you have access to a whole range of benefits. This includes, free online training, legal support services as well as our award-winning membership magazine, Childcare Professional, to keep all our members across England and Wales up to date with the latest news, campaigns and expert advice. PACEY work hard to represent your views to key decision makers in England and Wales. We are in regular contact with minister, elected officials, civil servants, regulators and local authorities to voice your concerns, promote a level playing field for all childcare providers, and to support a high quality, diverse and flexible childcare offer for families.

As a PACEY member, you also get an enhanced listing on our new childcare directory, SearchChildcare. At PACEY we know you can’t put a price on advertising your childcare business. So, we haven’t.

Not only is it completely free to use, but it is bigger and better than ever before! The newly improved childcare directory puts high quality early years providers, like you, just a click away from parents. Creating a profile is easy and takes just a few minutes. When you proudly display the PACEY member logo, parents searching on the site will see their closest PACEY member first. Create a profile today.

Exciting news for 2020! We’ve been working behind the scenes to create a new and exciting CPD platform – EY smart – for everyone who works in childcare and early years.

A new and interactive CPD programme, EY smart has been developed by childcare practitioners for childcare practitioners. We have worked with Ofsted, the Department for Education, Social Care Wales, and The Open University to ensure support and essential learning is provided in a fun and accessible way. EY smart is free, online training, offering short, 10 minute courses that can be done on any device, at any time. Change the way you learn today. Register for free here.
