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 working in childcare and early years to provide high quality care and early learning for children and families.
We provide training, practical help and expert advice to practitioners working throughout England and Wales. We represent the views and experiences of practitioners and champion their vital role in helping prepare children for a bright future.
