How PACEY works with government
We work with government to represent our members' views and ensure children get the best start in life.
From campaigning on ratios and regulations, to responding to government consultations, PACEY works with national and local government in England and Wales to help shape and influence early years policy.
We're also commissioned by local and national government to provide services to early years professionals, including training for childminders and promoting childcare as a profession. And we offer a specific package of support to local childcare providers through local authorities.
