Occasional care

Occasional care is childcare provided on a casual basis.

This kind of care is suitable for families who don’t need regular childcare. It can be useful for times that you just need someone to look after your child for a small amount of time such as to attend appointments, go shopping or to get a haircut.

Occasional care is also a good way for your child to start socialising and transition to childcare or kindergarten.
