Q:

Where is the headquarters of the National Childminding Association?

A:

The National Childminding Association (currently known as PACEY, Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) has its head office at Royal Court, 81 Tweedy Road, Bromley BR 1 1TG, UK. PACEY also maintains a secondary head office in Wales, at Room 1.4 The Maltings, East Tyndall Street, Cardiff. CF24 5EZ.

Childminding is the British term for what is called day care in the United States. In England, childminders are registered by the government. The PACEY was established in Britain in the early 1970s as a response to the rising awareness of inadequate local child care in many areas of the country. The purpose of PACEY is to provide educational and professional support for childminders in the UK. The name was changed from the National Childminding Association to the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years in 2013.
