Occasional

Wyndham City’s Hoppers Crossing Children’s Centre provides a safe and high quality occasional child care service.  All programs are educationally based following the guidelines of the Early Years Learning Framework, and provide a caring environment for children to be able to learn and socialise. Occasional care provides short periods of care when parents need time out to attend an appointment, shop or study. It may also be used to help children develop social skills or as a stepping stone to other early education and care services.

Casual bookings can be made up to one week in advance or on the day for occasional care. Regular sessional bookings are also available.

Occasional care operates from 9:00am to 2:00pm, Tuesday through to Friday for children aged 0 to 5 years. Families may book in for 2.5 hour or 5 hour sessions within those times.

2.5hour sessions are 9am-11:30am or 11:30am-2pm

5 hour sessions are 9am-2pm

Occasional Care offers more choice and flexibility to suit individual family circumstances, with occasional care sessions running from Tuesday to Friday, all year round, closing only for 4 weeks at the conclusion of each calendar year. The current fee for occasional care is $16 per hour. Eligible families may be able to reduce the cost of their sessions by applying for the Child Care Subsidy.

Please refer to the Centrelink website for further information about the Child Care Subsidy.
