Casual Care and Occasional Care are flexible childcare services for families who need childcare every now and then. They are suitable for families who only need childcare occasionally.
We offer both Casual Care and Occasional Care at Children’s Centres across Yarra.
These centres are specifically designed for the supervision, education and care of children. They also offer services like kindergarten, long day care, maternal and child health, and parent information sessions.
The services are also licensed with the Department of Education and Training.
We offer five-hour and full day casual care at five of our children’s centres across Yarra.
These centres are specifically designed for the supervision, education and care of children.
