NEWS: New Manager memberships build on successful partnership

The Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) and Morton Michel are building on their already successful partnership working in the field of specialist insurance by today launching PACEY’s new Manager membership for nurseries and pre-schools. 

Recognising that our individual expertise in supporting all childcare and early years settings with information, advice and support as well as specialist insurance, we can each play to our strengths.  

PACEY and Morton Michel have been partners for over five years now, primarily focussed on supporting PACEY childminder members with specialist home and motor insurance. We are now taking the next step and working together to provide tailored support to nurseries and pre-schools.  This is the next step in our commitment to a long-term partnership that we believe will combine our strengths so we can provide a better support, protection and reassurance to the childcare and early years sector.  

Liz Bayram, PACEY Chief Executive, and Sue Lee, Morton Michel’s Managing Director, issued a joint statement on their new partnership. “With PACEY’s 40+ years of childcare expertise and strong voice with government in England and Wales, and Morton Michel’s 50+ years as a childcare insurance specialist, we know that together we can deliver a greater level of protection and reassurance as well as advice, support and inspiration by working together. And that can only be good for our sector, especially now with all the challenges it faces.”   

New Manager memberships from PACEY

PACEY has long supported individuals working in childcare and early years, helping amplify the voices of childcare professionals, and offering support and guidance to help them build successful and resilient childcare businesses. Building on the successful relaunch of PACEY membership to individual providers, including childminders, in 2021, we are now excited to say that we are extending our current membership offers to nursery and pre-school managers.  

PACEY’s new Manager memberships are designed to provide tailored support to nursery and pre-school managers, helping them to provide children with bright futures and families with the support they need. Key to all this is running a successful business and nurturing and developing your staff. Our new Manager memberships support this and more.    

We’ve worked closely with our partners Kinderly to provide additional business tools for our Manager Plus members. With Kinderly Together, the award-winning nursery management software, Managers can access an accounting and invoicing package to ease administration, plus a parent portal to support effective interactions with families.  

We’ve also worked with childcare insurance specialist, Morton Michel, so that our membership meets the needs of the nurseries and pre-schools they work with and so that PACEY can refer Manager members to Morton Michel’s specialist insurance.
