Learning and Care

Occasional Care

Occasional Care provides 'now and then' child care to enable parents/caregivers to participate in activities, fulfil work commitments, keep appointments, or have a break from their child/ren on an occasional basis rather than as a regular booking in a long day care centre. Occasional Care sessions operate alongside of regular preschool sessions.

For more information of occasional care sessions please check our Centre Handbook.


The national Early Years Learning Framework, ‘Belonging, Being and Becoming’, which was developed as part of the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care is used by centre staff as a basis for curriculum delivery at our centre. This framework has a specific emphasis on play-based learning. When children play, they learn about themselves, other people and the world around them. They develop their ability to communicate, develop and practise physical skills, and they learn to solve a multitude of problems.


Family playgroups are held at the centre on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. A small fee is payable each week; $3.50. These programs are coordinated by parent volunteers. Targeted playgroups for children and families with additional support needs are also held at the Centre.
