Free wraparound childcare for military families

From January, eligible military families with children aged four to 11, who are based in Catterick and Plymouth, will be able to apply for free before and after-school childcare, as part of new measures to better support the Armed Forces and their families.

Families could apply for up to 20 hours of childcare a week in term time.

The pilot scheme, which was announced in the summer by Defence Secretary the Rt Hon Ben Wallace MP, began in September at RAF High Wycombe and RAF Halton in Buckinghamshire.

For more information, see our Childcare & Early years webpage.
