Family Information Service directory

The Family Information Service have a wealth of information and advice on choosing childcare (including accessing 2, 3 and 4 year old funding), finding activities for your children and helping you to access any support you may need.

For more information, visit the Family Information Service webpages on the Solihull Council website.

To narrow your search on childcare or activities please use our advanced search to find your selection based on your individual requirements.

Please note: The below activities are not registered or regulated by the Family Information Service. It is your responsibility to ensure you are happy that the activities are safe and appropriate for your child. Also whilst the Family Information Service regularly check and update directory records we suggest contacting providers first to ensure activities are still running.
