As a parent you could be eligible for an OSCAR Subsidy which will help you with your fees. Click on the WINZ link to see what help you would get. If your subsidy doesn't cover the full costs of the programme, you will be invoiced for the remaining amount.
WHO CAN GET IT?
You may get an Oscar Subsidy if you:
-are working or studying and are the main carer of a dependent child.
-don't have a partner who can provide childcare or partner is working.
-are a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident.
It also depends on how much you and your spouse or partner earns.
The child or young person must be:
-aged 5 to 13 years old (or up to 18 years if you get a Child Disability Allowance for them).
-attending an approved OSCAR programme for three or more hours a week.
The child should also normally live in New Zealand. This information is a guide only. Contact WINZ to talk about your individual circumstances.
