Family Information Service Directory

 

This new Directory not only looks better but has features that will improve searches for parents and practitioners to enhance their experience searching for childcare. We have also added pages around the new Directory to help provide information for parents on Early Education Funding, activities, support services and HAF.

 

The new Directory can be found here - https://eservices.solihull.gov.uk/Synergy/Live/SynergyWeb/Childcare.aspx
