Building Blocks 2018

PACEY’s third annual Building Blocks survey is open to all childcare and early years professionals working in England and Wales, from childminders to nannies to nursery and pre-school staff. It provides a valuable, regular health check on the state of the early years sector.    

We ask questions about providers' experience, qualifications and training, working conditions, finances and future plans. 

We also want to know your views on the big issues facing the sector, such as the 30-hours offer, in order to make sure your collective voice is heard by government, regulators and other key partners such as local authorities.


Whether you are a PACEY member or not, your contribution is vital. Please share this survey with other early years practitioners you know – the more responses we receive, the better we can meet their needs and represent their views to key decision makers.

The survey should take you less than 10 minutes to complete. The deadline to respond is Tuesday 8th May 2018.     

As a thank you for taking part, you will have an opportunity at the end to enter a prize draw for a chance to win one of five £50 shopping vouchers.
