Extended FREE childcare entitlement in overseas locations Are you posted overseas? Do you have children who are three or four years old?

The MOD has published a document giving information about free childcare entitlement in overseas locations. AFF has compiled a summary of the regulations. 
The MOD aims to provide services similar to those in England where possible, whilst recognising the support that is given elsewhere in the UK to all eligible Service Personnel.
Currently, the MOD provides 15 hours of childcare per week for 38 weeks of the year for three and four year olds in places at MOD-provided settings, or through access to the MOD Overseas Nursery Allowance.
