Occasional care

Occasional care is for children under school age who aren't in any other early childhood education and care programs, such as preschool, child care or family day care. It promotes young children's development by giving them access to high-quality early childhood education.

It may help parents to take part in a range of activities including non-work and casual work commitments.

Priority of access

The education department has a priority of access policy to decide who can get into occasional care. This might mean that some families get more sessions than others.

Talk to use about enrolling in occasional care.
