$500 voucher: Before and After School Care

Apply for a before and after school care voucher

We are pleased to advise that Polaris FDC has finalised the process of provider appoval for NSW Government's BASC Voucher Program and we have rolled the program out to the services, so families are now able to begin using their vouchers at Polaris FDC.

The Voucher which is equivalent in amount of $500 per a child will be given to the families with child(ren) who attend NSW primary school and it will be used to support only Before or After School Care or Vacation Care.

Please remember that the families who are eligible need to have their child(ren) enrolled in a Polaris FDC, however the BASC vouchers can be utilised for Vacation Care, including for the Autumn Vacation Care period program which will be released very soon.
