Family Support NI is the central government register of REGISTERED and APPROVED Childcare Providers throughout Northern Ireland. Before and since Covid 19, we provide the most up-to-date information available about childcare provision

We work closely with the Early Years Teams within the Health and Social Care Trusts, who are responsible for registering and inspecting childcare providers. They inform us of newly registered or ceased childcare providers, and any changes to their details.

We also work with childcare providers to provide as much detail as possible on the service they provide (including current vacancy information), to try to make it as easy as possible for parents or carers to find suitable childcare to meet theirs and their children's needs.

We have several useful articles at the Childcare Section of this website including :-
