Occasional Care is provided in a range of settings on either an hourly basis, for short periods of time, or at irregular intervals specifically for parents who need time to attend appointments, undertake casual or part-time employment, study or have temporary respite from full-time parenting. All occasional care services comply with the same Children's Services Regulations that apply to childcare centres and kindergartens.
And of course they provide a safe, fun and educational play-based program for children!
Boroondara boasts a variety of occasional care services that suit the broad range of needs for families. Some services provide specific sessions for over 3 year olds, which can be a great stepping-stone for children who are not quite ready for kindergarten.
