Families with children aged 4 to 13 years that attend a primary school in NSW can receive a $500 voucher per child to reduce the out-of-pocket costs of before and after school care. 

This includes children who are starting kindergarten in 2022. 

You can apply for a voucher from 28 February to 30 September 2022 for each eligible child through Service NSW website or at a Service NSW Centre.

A voucher can be:

  • redeemed with a before and after school care provider from 28 February to 31 December 2022 (voucher credit can be used for services until 30 June 2023)
  • used on any weekday during the school term, or on days of the week when vacation care is provided during the redemption period.

Your child must be:

  • a resident of NSW
  • aged between 4 and 13 years
  • enrolled in a primary school in NSW
  • listed on a valid Medicare card.

Note: You can apply for one voucher per child, provided each child meets the eligibility criteria.
