If you're interested in registering as a childminder or nanny in England or Wales, then you've come to the right place.

With over 40 years' experience and expertise, PACEY is best placed to support you on your journey to become a childcare professional.

If you're thinking about working as a childminder or nanny in England, start with our short, online briefing taster session to see if being a childminder is right for you. Then discover more about our Level 3 training course, Preparing to Work in Home-Based Childcare (HBCA), giving you all you need to register with Ofsted.

HBCA is available online via our e-learning platform, comes with six months' free learner membership of PACEY*.

If you're in Wales, you'll need to know about our recommended course Understand how to set up a home-based childcare service (CYPOP5).

I've just finished my course and I have to say PACEY were fantastic. My tutor was brilliant. Coursework marked quickly and even with health issues they were fully supportive in helping me through.
