IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OSCAR SUBSIDIES
HGK no longer provides OSCAR
OSCAR subsidies are available to families with children who attend school (up to age 14, or 18 if they receive a child disability allowance) and is available by applying to WINZ and you meet the income test.
There have been some changes for services operating as a Home Based network/s (like HGK) as to how these subsidies can be utilized.
The changed legislation states that services can operate as an OSCAR provider as long as there are no other preschool children attending and receiving Government funding while OSCAR care is taking place.
This completely nullifies our ability to operate OSCAR services as we are licensed to provide education and care to children under the age of 6 who are not enrolled in, and attend school.
We realize that this information is not widely publicised on MSD's website and even googling it can be very difficult which is why we have published it here on our website.
