FIRST LAP VOUCHERS
The NSW Government’s First Lap voucher program is officially open. Parents, guardians, and carers of children aged 3-6 years who have not started school or children who are enrolled in kindergarten in 2021 or 2022 can now claim a $100 voucher to help pay for swimming lessons!
By making swimming and water safety education more accessible for families, the First Lap program will help keep NSW children healthy, happy, and safe in and around the water.
What is the First Lap voucher and who is eligible to use it?
The First Lap voucher program provides $100 vouchers for parents, guardians and carers of children
aged 3-6 years who are not enrolled in school to help pay for swimming lessons. The First Lap voucher
program will run from 1 December 2021 to 30 June 2023.
In recognition that swimming lessons were impacted due to COVID-19 restrictions, this year the program
has been expanded to include children in kindergarten in 2021 and those starting kindergarten in 2022.
The first voucher is available from 1 December 2021 and expires on 30 June 2022.
