Working for Families OSCAR Subsidies

An Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) Subsidy is a payment that helps families by reducing the costs of before school care, after school care and school holiday programmes.

It helps with the costs of before school and after school programmes for up to 20 hours a week, and school holiday programmes of up to 50 hours a week.

 

It is also important in order to receive your OSCAR subsidy from the day your child starts the programme, you need to submit your application before your child’s first day. This is especially important during the School Holidays.

 

Our Managers Nigel and Nicola are experienced in working with the Working for Families so they can help you during the enrolment process in making sure you get the maximum entitlement you are eligible for.
