Occasional Child Care

Do you need time for work, an appointment, a class or coffee with friends? Come visit us and see our lovely family group size playroom run by staff qualified in early childhood. It’s a place for children to play, explore & develop their social skills, perhaps a transition to long day care or kindergarten in a safe and secure environment.

Our occasional child care service takes children aged 6 months to 5 years and is offered  Monday through Thursday from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm during school terms.  A maximum of 7 children can be cared for at any one time.

Please contact us on 9531 1954 to book a place. 

The service aims to cater for children’s individual needs in a relaxed and flexible program. In each session a variety of activities are offered, including:

  • doing puzzles
  • building
  • drawing, painting, collage and using playdough
  • music
  • role playing
  • listening to stories

Bookings can be made on the phone, but cancellations have to be made 48 hours in advance, otherwise customers will be charged the full fee of the booking.
