Hello, apparently there is a new law covering the cost of childcare for children 0-2 years old. What is unclear is if it covers foreign children, only families in specific income brackets, or any other exclusion or inclusion clauses. Anyone have knowledge of the specifics?

K4E has verified that the information is correct. To qualify for the subsidy, the child must be under the age of 5 years and hold a Korean passport (ie: at least one parent must be a Korean citizen).
The subsidy is not available to foreign residents.

Is this law for children from a particular place or is it for children from all places.

The government subsidy covers the children of Korean citizens - children who hold a Korean passport. Children and families who do not have Korean citizenship are, by definition, not covered.

This question originated from reading articles on kreatimes.co.kr over the years living here. This reply is to give a small glimpse of history on this topic as well as for people to find some facts about it themselves. Today in particular this appears again http://koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2012/03/117_107997.html or you could search for it under Municipalities revolt against free childcare.
From reading this particular article you can tell this a new development governmentally that not points are worked out or agreed on at least politically.
Continuing with other articles http://koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2012/03/117_107997.html Welfare overhaul facing challenges, http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2012/01/113_103649.html Seven of 10 Koreans support chilcare subsidy increases, http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news/nation/2011/05/113_86285.html Govt to offer free pre-school education for 5 year-olds.
Other articles exist at this same newspaper site and were found searching "free childcare". These articles include some opinion views and political or government policy announcements on this topic developing.
