How to become an approved childcare or OSCAR provider and what help is available for you and parents.
To receive payments from us you need to be a licensed childcare service and registered to receive subsidies.
There are different types of assistance available to parents when their pre-school child attends a childcare service (eg, Childcare Subsidy).
To receive payments from us you need to be an approved OSCAR provider and registered to receive subsidies.
We may be able to help you with advice, or a grant for your running costs.
Parents and caregivers may be able to get an OSCAR Subsidy. This subsidy helps with the costs of before-school and after-school programmes for up to 20 hours a week, and school holiday programmes of up to 50 hours a week.
We need to know when things change. If you don’t tell us, you may be overpaid and you'll need to pay the money back.
