Morton Michel and PACEY 

Morton Michel and PACEY are thrilled to have been working in partnership for the past five years, initially focused on supporting PACEY childminder members with specialist home and motor insurance and more recently working together to provide tailored support to nursery and preschool PACEY Manager members.

With Morton Michel’s 50+ years as a childcare insurance specialist and PACEY’s 40+ years of childcare expertise and strong voice with government in England and Wales, we know that together we can deliver a greater level of protection and reassurance as well as advice, support and inspiration by working together.

Nursery and Preschool

Running a nursery can be hugely rewarding, but it can be stressful, too. That’s why having the right insurance cover and protection is vital. PACEY Manager members already benefit from hundreds of resources to help support running a successful business. Being correctly insured is an essential next step.

Morton Michel has been insuring childcare businesses for more than 50 years and has decades of experience in what insurance cover nurseries and preschools need. We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with PACEY to provide their Manager members with access to our specialist Nursery and Preschool policies. We understand that insurance requirements can vary widely so our experienced team will work with each member to provide an insurance quotation tailored to their unique needs.
