PACEY Local

Connecting with other childcare professionals near you is a great way to reflect on and improve your practice and benefit from peer-to-peer support.

One great way to meet other childcare professionals is to join the PACEY Local online forum. Our online community is there for you to share best practice and information, join in discussions, and network with other early years and childcare professionals.

Meet with other childcare professionals in your area

As well as our online community, PACEY Local has face to face meetings run by volunteer Facilitators. PACEY Local groups offer the opportunity to meet with other childcare professionals in your area.

Each PACEY Local group is different and evolves according to the needs of the local area, providing opportunities to meet socially, to help each other with planning, or to arrange drop-in sessions and local trips out with the children in your care.

The meetings are also a great way of keeping up to date with issues that affect childcare professionals in their every day work.

Find out about local meetings and who your PACEY Local facilitator is with the 'Your Region' section of our online forum.
