Enhancing Children's Play: Whakarewa i te taakaroa tamariki

OSCAR is the term used for out of school care and recreation services that operate for school aged children aged 5 –14 years.

Programmes may operate before school, after school or during school holidays. OSCAR services vary throughout New Zealand reflecting the diversity of their communities

The OSCAR Network provides support to programmes but is not a programme provider. We do not assess, endorse, approve, license or fund programmes.

OSCAR Programmes are run individually by different groups. OSCAR Network does not  manage programmes.

Because each programme is run by different groups, they have different hours and costs. You need to check directly with the programme. Find a programme.  The same applies for registration of your child/ren on a programme. If you have any concerns or complaints regarding a programme, - see making a complaint.
