The childcare directory powered by PACEY

At PACEY we know you can’t put a price on advertising your childcare business. So, we haven’t.

SearchChildcare is our childcare directory. Not only is it completely free to use, but it is bigger and better than ever before! The newly improved childcare directory from PACEY puts high quality early years providers, like you, just a click away from parents.

Updating your free profile is easy and takes just a few minutes. With new features and functionality, you can decide how you want to showcase your setting.

You can link to your inspection report from your listing, and because your listing has its own unique address, SearchChildcare could even replace the need for a website and become the shopfront of your business… without paying a penny.

What's included?

Increased functionality means that parents are now able to search within half a mile of an address, location or landmark. An embedded Google map enables them to see the general location of your setting on a local map. You can indicate your availability and even list your fees. In fact, SearchChildcare allows you to provide as much or as little information about your setting as you like. 

PACEY members also have an enhanced vacancy listing on SearchChildcare, helping to set you apart from other local early years providers. When you proudly display the PACEY member logo parents searching on the site will see their closest PACEY member first.

  • Upload photos of your setting
  • Link to your inspection report (England only at present)
  • Link to your setting's website or Facebook page
  • Indicate whether you have spaces at present
  • Specify the types of payment you accept
  • Detail your fees and availability

To help you create a powerful profile, we've produced a series of guides and best-practice examples. 

Just log into SearchChildcare using your email address and MyPACEY password and update your listing. It really is that simple.

You already have a listing on SearchChildcare, built from your existing member information. Log in now using your email address and MyPACEY password to begin editing your profile on the new childcare directory straight away. Of course, if you'd prefer not to be listed on SearchChildcare, you can opt out of the service
