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.
