Job Centre Plus

PACEY has information and resources designed to help Job Centre Plus (JCP) staff support parents in their search for high quality childcare, available childcare funding and information about careers in childcare, specifically childminding.

This reflects the important role JCP staff play in advising and sharing information with parents at critical stages of their lives, and through the meetings that take place with work coaches to support parents in preparing for work.

These resources for JCP staff will help ensure that they are aware of the different childcare options, including the range of childcare entitlements available.

PACEY are also working with JCP nationally to ensure the staff knowledge hub holds relevant easy to access advice for staff.  

Childcare: Ready to choose? is a downloadable leaflet to use with parents. It clearly explains the different types of childcare available, and offers suggestions of questions for parents to ask when talking to childcare providers.





Childcare: helping you choose postcard. This postcard may be used to signpost parents to childminders who are able to offer funded childcare.





Join our #NotABabysitter campaign. Help spread the word about the training, regulation and qualifications of professional childminders and how they can support the families you work with.
