COVID-19 payment options

We have all been deeply affected by the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak and each one of us is being tested, both professionally and personally.

At PACEY we've been working around the clock to provide information, support, advice, guidance and reassurance to members and the wider early years and childcare sector. We've worked with the Department for Education and Ofsted in England, and the CIW and Welsh government in Wales to help shape the ways in which childcare providers are being asked to change and adapt to these new circumstances. 

We want to help you as much as we can during this worrying and unsettling time. Though we are a small charity with limited funds ourselves, we recognise the financial challenge facing many of our members. To help, we've enabled all members to be able to renew in 12 monthly instalments, helping to spread the cost of your membership and insurance.

By renewing your PACEY membership and insurance you'll continue to receive support and advice from PACEY and retain full access to MyPACEY and your enhanced SearchChildcare listing, plus your other member benefits.

You'll also help us to continue to speak on your behalf and to raise your concerns with government and regulators. And over the coming weeks and months we'll be focusing in particular on how we support you to sustain your childcare setting during these difficult times and we'll be there to help you build it up again once COVID-19 is beaten.

Together we can ensure that you are part of a vibrant early years and childcare sector once the pandemic is over.

Spread my membership 

  • We've introduced monthly direct debit payments so that you can spread the cost of your membership and insurance across the year.
  • You can choose to switch to monthly payments when you renew your membership.
  • Payments from as little as £7.66 per month (depending on your plan)

Working together we can ensure you remain part of a thriving early years and childcare sector, doing the job you love and providing children and families with the high quality childcare and early education they will need as we all get back to normal life.

As a not-for-profit charity, we are highly dependent on your membership fee to help us continue to support you at this difficult time. Together we have been ensured the voices of childminders and other early years providers are heard at the heart of Government; we have ensured the Chancellor made provision for self-employed people. His mention of childminders in his speech announcing support for the self-employed is evidence of the impact of PACEY’s campaigning.

We hope you will take advantage of this and commit to another year of PACEY membership, so together we can continue to provide the support you and other members need and to demonstrate to children, families and society there will be a strong childcare and early years sector when COVID-19 is beaten.
