We run a mixed aged program at Occasional Care for children 4mths – 6yrs. We offer long-term or short-term bookings so that parents can take a break, study or attend appointments. Older children enjoy leadership opportunities and pre-school learning with an Early Childhood Teacher and team of Educators. Caring Educators also nurture the youngest children closely and all children are enriched by the social nature of the service.
Our collaborative program is based on the Australian Early Years Learning Framework, as are all Licensed Children's Services, including Long Day Care and Preschools. Children's interests and family input also inspire our planning.

We take many photos during the day of the children's learning journey, and these beautiful stories are shared with our children and parents.Our caring approach is based on our fundamental belief in the 'Circle Of Security' attachment research; and secure,genuine, relationships are developed  with each and every child.

Occasional care is very much like preschool; but offers more affordable and flexible arrangements.  You are welcome to visit our not-for-profit community service for a ‘No Charge’ orientation where you    and your child can stay and play or book in for short-term or long-term care as needed.

Morning tea and Lunch in separate containers and with name labels.

2 nappies if needed, please label everything.
