I want to apply for OSCAR where do I start?
Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) Subsidy is a payment which helps families with the costs of before-school and after-school programmes for up to 20 hours a week, and school holiday programmes for up to 50 hours a week.
The OSCAR Standards provide reassurance to parents and caregivers that a programme is properly run and takes place in a safe environment for children. In addition, parents and caregivers may qualify for an OSCAR Subsidy. Parents of children attending unapproved programmes cannot receive an OSCAR Subsidy.
OSCAR subsidies are available from WINZ for families that meet the criteria and are attending 3 or more hours per week.
For more information or an application form please contact
WINZ forms must be completed and returned to WINZ prior to the programme commencement.
