EXTENDED FREE CHILDCARE ENTITLEMENT IN OVERSEAS LOCATIONS


1. In overseas locations the MOD provides services (or access to services) that, so far as is reasonably practicable, conform in type, scope and standard to that required by legislation in England (but paying due regard to the equivalent legislation in the Devolved Administrations).

2. The 2006 Childcare Act provided for 15 hours of childcare per week for 38 weeks of the year for 3 and 4 year olds free of charge. In overseas locations the MOD currently delivers this entitlement through places at MOD-provided settings or through access to the MOD Overseas Nursery Allowance.

3. The 2016 Childcare Act provides for an extension of the current entitlement and offers an additional 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year of free childcare for children that are eligible, with effect from 1 September 2017.

4. The additional 15 hours will be available to families where both parents are working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family) a minimum of 16 hours each per week. Parents each earning £100,000.00 or more do not qualify for the additional entitlement.

DINOSAURS RETURN TO OCEAN TERMINAL

ROAR! Dinosaurs Return

Monday 17th July to Sunday 13th August

FREE fun for everyone!

Following their roaring success over Easter 2016, T-Rex has brought some new friends to visit this summer. 12 animatronic dinosaur models will be taking over the centre located in 9 different locations across 3 floors!

They move, they roar, they breathe… but don’t worry, they won’t bite (so we’re told)!

Alongside the Famous T-Rex, meet and learn about many others including Spinosaurus (one of the largest carnivores to have ever lived on Earth), Raptorex (one of the most ferocious carnivores) and Troodon (the smartest dinosaur known to date).

Plus, get involved with dino-tastic workshops on the 1st floor overlooking the water.  Excavate for dinosaur bones, mould your favourite dinosaur, get creative with designs to be projected on to a dinosaur and take a photo with a baby dinosaur.

Workshop Opening Times
Monday to Friday: 12noon – 4pm
Saturday & Sunday: 11am – 5pm

Please note, the workshop area is first come first served and could be busy at times meaning that some activities may not be available. Activities offered are for a mixture of ages, not all will be suitable for very young children.
