New Childcare Schemed Launched for Military Personnel

Service families will get free childcare for kids aged between four (4) and eleven (11), the Ministry of Defence has announced.

The scheme covers so-called ‘wraparound’ care – which takes place before and after school hours – during term time.

Royal Air Force personnel will trial the new offer from September, followed
by Catterick and Plymouth-based troops in January 2021.

Details of the wider roll-out will also be published next year.
