Childcare Subsidies & WINZ

There are additional subsidies available to help families with the cost of childcare.  Every child aged 0-3 whose household income is less than a certain threshold is entitled to a 9 hour subsidy from WINZ. If all the adults in the house are working or studying, and not earning more than these thresholds, you may be entitled to more hours of subsidy from WINZ.  The Childcare Subsidy may still be available for 3-5 year olds, if you need extra hours on top of 20 Hours ECE.

You can read more about it on the Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Education and WINZ websites below.  Or feel welcome to contact us, we are more than happy to help guide you through this process.
