Today PACEY publishes its first research report. Entitled ‘Childcare – not just a job, a vocation’, it explores what childminders, nannies and nursery workers view as both the benefits and challenges of the childcare profession. To inform the findings, PACEY surveyed early years and childcare professionals from across the spectrum.

You can find the full report here – it makes for insightful reading and we’d recommend it to anyone working in childcare. Throughout the week on PACEY Local we’ll be pulling out key findings from the report to get your opinion so make sure you keep checking PACEY Local as well as our new Facebook page www.facebook.com/paceylocal

What are your initial thoughts on the findings? Do the ideas and issues raised relate to your own experiences?
