Easy steps to membership
Complete an accredited 12-hour paediatric first-aid course. PACEY offers paediatric first-aid training, tailored especially to home-based childcarers. Your local Family Information Service should also hold a list of local training providers.
Contact an organisation that can process a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (formally CRB - Criminal Records Bureau) on your behalf. The Home Office has a full list of organisations that can also provide this service.
Call PACEY and ask about PACEY Nanny membership. You’ll need your first-aid certificate number and DBS (formally CRB) disclosure number if you’re not registered or planning to register with Ofsted or CAS.
Commit to doing at least 15 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) per year. This commitment shows you are a professional and also gives you the opportunity to move through PACEY's categories of membership, helping you demonstrate your experience as a childcare professional.
