Ottawa Gardens Preschool has always been part of the Government’s 20 hours programme. If your child is 3 they are entitled to the 20 hour subsidy on fee. Outside of this for a half day (8am-12pm or 12pm-4pm) is $22.00 or for a full day (8am-4pm) is $42.00
To get the 20 hours all you need to do is enrol your child at our centre, and complete the subsidy form given by the manager. Your fees will then be reduced according to the fees schedule. Please note, if you receive a WINZ subsidy for childcare you can’t get both.
You may also qualify for childcare support based on the level of income your family earns. Click here to see if you qualify for this. You could also ask the centre because we are familiar with the forms that need to be filled out.
There is also helpful information on whether you might qualify for childcare assistance on the Working for Families website: http://www.workingforfamilies.govt.nz/childcare-assistance/
