Vouchers To Help Kids Stay Connected Through Education

posted May 13, 2020, 6:09 PM by 2MG Real FM
Those with children in the Dubbo Electorate will be able to redeem their $100 'Creative Kids' vouchers and stay connected to creative learning activities during COVID-19.

The program has expanded to allow 'Creative Kids' vouchers to be used for online programs and educational materials, with $1 million in funding will help program providers make the digital transition.

Member for Dubbo Dugald Saunders says the Government is doing everything it can to keep kids connected to quality cultural and creative activities, despite the impact of COVID-19.

Changes will mean children all across NSW will have greater access to a range of 'Creative Kids' providers who go digital.

'Creative Kids'
 offers families one $100 voucher per year for every school aged child to contribute to registration, participation and tuition costs for:
- Performing and visual arts
- Coding
- Languages
- Literature
- Music and other creative and cultural activities.

The expanded guidelines will ensure children with limited access to the internet, including in regional and remote NSW, have more opportunities by allowing 'Creative Kids' vouchers to cover the cost of more creative materials and equipment.
