Thanks to a grant worth almost £400k, PACEY will be able to support many more registered childminders to consider how to make their small businesses more sustainable and whether they could deliver funded early education places.
PACEY knows that many registered childminders in England are currently deciding whether to deliver funded early education (including the extension to 30 hours) or not. Two questions are key to many childminders trying to make this important decision. Firstly how funded early education might impact on their long term business sustainability? Secondly how likely it is parents will choose a childminder to access their funded place?
