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.
