Making sense of the sector for you

It is such a crucial time for our sector right now. With childcare at the forefront of Government plans, PAEY aims to be the voice of our members, promote the incredible work you do and support you through all the changes.

Latest policy and government updates

We work closely with government bodies such as DfE and Ofsted to keep abreast of upcoming policy changes and challenge decisions for the good of the sector. We publish research, advise government and regulators; give evidence to select committees and inquiries and talk to the media.

All of the sector changes and policy proposals can be overwhelming, PACEY is here to make them more manageble and digestible for our members with regular news stories and support with consultation responses and outcomes and contacting local MPs.
