Finding Childcare and Activities in North Lincolnshire

Would you like to be able to use formal childcare so you can work, train or have time out or to find activities your children can enjoy but worry their individual needs couldn’t or wouldn’t be met?

The Family Information Service can help!

We can provide you with a list of OfSTED registered childcare providers with experience of caring for children with a wide range of needs. We can put a childcare provider in touch with extra SEND support to make sure they have the skills and knowledge to help your child meet their full potential and are cared for in a safe and stimulating environment.

We provide information on OfSTED registered childcare providers; nurseries, pre-schools, childminders and out of school clubs on the North Lincs Local Offer website

Here you can find contact details and also read a statement on how they aim to meet the needs of children with SEND.

If you are looking for term-time or holiday sporting, craft or other activities then why not check out our Children & Young People’s Activity Guide.

It has a calendar format so you can filter by date or venue. Activities have also been tagged with age categories and a category of SEND so you can pick out the activities that are especially aimed at children and young people with SEND.

However, if you think your child would enjoy any of the other activities the Family Information Service can liaise with the activity provider on your behalf to ensure the activity is suitable and they can get the maximum benefit from taking part.

For more information on childcare or activities for children and young people with SEND please call us on 01724 296629 or email
