The Free Childcare Scheme is an initiative which was promised in the Government’s Electoral Manifesto in 2013, whereby Government provides free childcare services to parents/guardians who are in employment or are pursuing their education, with the aim to help families achieve a work/life balance.

The childcare service is either provided directly through government servic​es or alternatively through Registered Childcare Centres.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
