Occasional Care

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.

The Greenvale Occasional Care program at Bradford Avenue Preschool, the Craigieburn program at Hume Global Learning Centre and the Roxburgh Park program at the Roxburgh Park Youth and Recreation Centre operate for five hours. 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.
