Occasional care

Our Children’s Centre offers Occasional Care services to support families who may not be accessing other forms of childcare, Kindergarten, or Family day care. Designed to provide flexibility and support, our Occasional Care program offers 3 hours per week during term time, integrated within the Kindergarten environment.

At our centre, we prioritise the development of secure and trusting relationships, fostering social skills, and promoting language development through a play-based learning environment. Our dedicated team is committed to providing a nurturing atmosphere where every child feels valued, supported, and encouraged to explore their potential.

Occasional Care sessions are available on the following days:

  • Monday: 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM (over 2’s)
  • Tuesday: 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM (over 2’s)
  • Thursday (Morning): 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM (over 2’s)
  • Thursday (Afternoon): 12:15 PM – 3:15 PM (over 2’s)
  • Friday: 8:30 AM – 11:30 AM (under 2’s and over 2’s)

Please note that space for children under 2 years old is limited and available only on Friday mornings. Additionally, children must be walking to attend as we have a very large outdoor learning environment.
