Occasional Care

The Department of Education occasional care services are targeted to support children who are not accessing alternative early childhood education and care programs, such as preschool, a childcare centre or family day care. It enables parents to participate in a range of activities (including non-work and casual work), by booking their child/children into occasional care.
Occasional Care is not a regular booking. You book one time and then re-book after your child attends a session. Booking is a maximum of one session per week pending availability. If you are looking for something more permanent parents should consider childcare or family day care.
