Service description:

The Families Information Service (FIS) offers impartial information, advice and guidance to parents, carers and prospective parents; including information about:

  • Childcare provision during term-time and school holidays
  • The free entitlement to nursery education for two, three and four year olds
  • Other services parents may need to support their children until their 20th birthday

The FIS has the 'Children and Families Service Finder,' which is an information portal that allows individuals, families, carers and professionals to easily and quickly identify groups, clubs and services that may be of interest to them. The Service Finder also lists all Ofsted-registered childcare providers in their area.

The Service Finder allows users to search by keyword, category and allows the user to refine their searches by age range, town and type of service or type of childcare provider.
