The Government has announced details of a £50 million grant scheme to provide new childcare places, designed to support the 30-hour childcare offer in England.
PACEY has joined other early years organisations in calling for the GCSE requirement for English and Maths for level 3 to be scrapped and for functional skills to be reinstated in England.
PACEY is the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years. Formed in 1977, we are a charity dedicated to supporting everyone involved in childcare and early education to provide high quality services, information and advice to children, their families and carers.
Across England and Wales we provide training, expert advice, help and peer support to practitioners and practical and impartial support and information for families and carers and those advising them. We represent the views and experiences of practitioners and champion their vital role in helping prepare children for a bright future.
