Occasional Care Services

Occasional Care offers a quality program of play and learning for children up to five years of age. Parents requiring care on a casual basis may book up to one week in advance, subject to availability.

Occasional care is offered up to five hours at:

  • Bradford Avenue Preschool, Greenvale
  • Hume Global Learning Centre, Cragieburn
  • Roxburgh Park Youth and Recreation Centre, Roxburgh Park

The five hour program provides opportunities for children to play and socialise with other children through developmentally appropriate activities based on children's ages, needs, interests and experiences.  

Children may attend one five hour session per week and where opportunity permits, can attend more than one session per week (up to a maximum of 15 hours per week).
