The Creative Kids Rebate can be put towards the cost of registration, participation or tuition fees for creative and cultural activities such as music lessons, language classes, coding and digital, visual and performing arts.
From 1 January 2019, parents will be able to access both the $100 Active Kids Rebate and the $100 Creative Kids Rebate each year for every school-aged child.
Parents will be able to access the rebate online or in person at a Service NSW centre.
Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said easing the cost-of-living pressures for parents and helping children learn and experience new activities was central to Creative Kids.
“We want to give every encouragement and every opportunity for children to try new things and have the best start in life,” Mr Perrottet said.
“For a family with two children, Creative and Active Kids combined will save you $400 a year.”
More information about the rebate, including the eligibility criteria and providers, will be available in the coming months.
