Occasional Care is a Department for Education funded program which provides `take a break’ care for families with children from 18mths of age, not otherwise accessing early childhood programs. This enables parents/caregivers to participate in activities, keep appointments, or have a break on an occasional basis rather than as a regular booking in a long day care. The occasional care program operates alongside and within the preschool program.
Occasional Care sessions are held on Tuesday and Wednesdays with both morning and afternoon sessions available. Bookings are secured in block of 5 weeks each term.
- Tuesday AM: 8:30am – 11:30am
- Tuesday PM: 12:00pm – 3:00pm
- Wednesday AM: 8:30am – 11:30am
For bookings and enquiries please contact the centre on 8322 1069
Session times are 8:30am – 3pm for 40 weeks in line with the SA school calendar.
The children are allocated into a group and will attend 4 terms of preschool in the year prior to attending school. In term 4 we will provide a twilight preschool session of 2.5 hours.
