Solihull Council has compiled a list of activities and childcare for parents and families during the summer holidays in the borough. Providers are offering activities in line with the latest Covid-19 Government guidance.

During this year’s school holidays, there are a number of activities for children and families, as well as Ofsted Registered holiday schemes and childminders offering care throughout the holidays. Parents and carers should always encourage their children to wash their hands regularly with soap for 20 seconds or more before and after activities. It is extremely important that children do not attend activities or childcare if they have possible symptoms of Covid-19. This includes a raised temperature, persistent cough and loss or change in taste/smell.

Families can find out about places to visit over the summer holidays, as well as activities at Solihull’s libraries, ways to stay active and ways to have fun at home here. Parents can also find out what activities and events are happening near them each month by joining the Parents’ Network to receive monthly emails.

Parents and carers can view information on how to choose activities for their children as well as how to choose a registered childcare place for them.  They can also access information and advice about mental wellbeing.

Parents who have a child with additional needs or a disability can also access information about choosing inclusive activities and childcare provision.

If you require any further information or support on accessing a registered childcare place or activity please contact the Family Information Service on 0800 389 8667 or email  familyinfo@solihull.gov.uk.
