38 children are attending the childcare centre in San Gwann which has been opened since the 16th of March to cater for the children of health professionals and members of disciplined forces.
20 children are registered in the 0-3 years club, and another 18 children are between four and sixteen years of age.
During a visit to the childcare centre, Education Minister Owen Bonnici has thanked all those involved for swiftly changing the San Ġwann Primary School, which forms part of St Clare College, into a fully equipped childcare centre for the benefit of our healthcare professionals and members of disciplined forces, who are at the forefront in the fight against the pandemic.
The government had announced in March that free childcare services would be offered to the children of healthcare professionals and members of disciplined forces in an effort to fight COVID-19.
