Located in NSW? A reminder about the new Creative Kids program and claims
From January 2019, New South Wales parents, guardians and carers of young people can apply for a $100 voucher to use for creative and cultural learning activities outside of the school curriculum via the Creative Kids initiative.
The Creative Kids program is designed to help more young people access important learning opportunities across a range of creative activities. The $100 voucher can be used towards the cost of participation in or tuition fees for activities such as music lessons, drama and theatre, language classes, visual arts, coding and design.
NSW students between the age of 4.5 to 18 years are eligible for the $100 voucher, including children that are home schooled or use distance education. The voucher can be used for registration, participation and membership costs for performing arts, visual arts, coding, languages, literary and other eligible creative and cultural activities during the calendar year it was issued.
Services may register to become a Creative Kids provider, or pass information on to families about the provision of the Creative Kids voucher program.
How to register your organisation as a Creative Kids provider
Organisations that are eligible to register for the program need to provide a structured program on a set topic, and can include:
- For-profit or not-for-profit activity providers located within NSW
- Services offering creative and cultural programs
- Art galleries
- Music and drama groups
- Language schools.
NSW public, private and Catholic schools are ineligible providers.
More information about the program and how services can register is available on the NSW Creative Kids website.
