Last updated 4 years ago

We will offer wraparound childcare for Forces families.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.52

Our verdict

  • This is a promise that the government will offer childcare for military families covering the periods before and after the school day, so-called ‘wraparound childcare’.
  • In July 2020, the government announced a planned pilot scheme of wraparound childcare for service personnel based in Buckinghamshire from September 2020, with further schemes expected in 2021.
  • With a pilot scheme planned for 2020 and more anticipated in 2021, this policy is ‘in progress’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
