Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is urging locals to make the most of the Creative Kids program.
"Creative Kids offers parents and guardians a $100 voucher, which can be used towards the cost of registration, participation or tuition fees for a range of children's activities including creative arts, speech, drama, digital design, coding, languages and music," Mr Anderson said.
"This is an awesome opportunity for businesses to help create a brighter future for local children by signing up to be a provider of the Creative Kids program.
"The Creative Kids program is just one of the ways we are helping to reduce the cost of living for NSW families, while giving children access to important creative pursuits.
"Parents, carers and guardians will be able to access both the $100 Creative Kids voucher for every school-aged child each year."
If you're a parent, carer or guardian, the student will be eligible if they are:
- a NSW resident
- aged between 4.5 and 18 years
- enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW)
- a current Medicare card holder.
You can apply for a voucher for each eligible student. You can use the voucher for registration, participation and tuition costs with approved Creative Kids providers. The guidelines are available in full on the Service NSW website: www.service.nsw.gov.au/campaign/cost-living
