Term 2 Bookings Clarification

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

With the impact of Covid-19 there is some concern and confusion regarding Term 2 bookings and WINZ forms.

We hope this will help clarify : 


Term Two Bookings

Unfortunately, the Ministry of Social Development (MSD) has not confirmed a start date for any after school and before school (OSCAR) programmes as yet.

Meantime, we want to help and give you confidence that you have secured a place for your child(ren) at Youthtown, ready for when we do start.

Through your location page on our website (Tamariki Options), you can secure the dates that you would like your child(ren) to attend.

However, to keep your account accurate this means that we are unable to fully process and confirm any bookings until we have a firm start date.

As soon as we have a confirmed start date, we will fully process your booking for you, and you will get a confirmation advice at that time.

If you enrolled your child(ren) for term 2 before the lockdown, you will not be charged for the days we have not been open and we will adjust your booking accordingly when we have a confirmed start date.



We are aware that many people have received subsidy reapplication forms from WINZ. Unfortunately, because we don’t have a confirmed start date, we are unable to fill out our part of any WINZ forms.

We are happy to receive your forms and hold them until the start date for after school care is confirmed.

Then we can complete and return the forms to you.


Thank you for your patience!
