Our Occasional Care Service at Brookvale Children's Centre provides flexible care for children from 6 weeks to 6 years. Children are cared for in their age group in an inclusive, safe environment and they learn through planned and spontaneous play experiences.

Registering for Occasional Care 

If this is the first time you have used Occasional Care, please complete the online registration.  You will need to attach your child's Immunisation History Statement to the Registration.

Cost and Opening Hours

The centre is open from 8.30am until 3.30pm Monday to Friday

The fee for occasional care is $18 per hour or $94 for a full day.

How to Book and Pay

Bookings can be made for one or more hours up to a full day.

Places are limited. You can book no more than a week ahead.

Payment is by EFTPOS on the day your child attends our centre.

Paperwork

All child care services require a copy of your child’s Immunisation History. If you didn’t include this with your online registration, you must bring it on your first day.

You can get a copy through Medicare Online Services, at your local DHS Service Centre or by calling the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.

Food and Drink

Please provide, in labelled containers, plenty of food and drinks for the time your child is in care. We’d appreciate it if you would avoid including any lollies or popcorn that could pose a choking hazard for younger children. To support us in promoting healthy choices, we also ask parents to avoid packing ‘junk’ food. 

Allergies 

Occasional Care is nut free. We cannot allow any nuts or nut products in our centre. This includes peanut butter and muesli bars or other food that might contain nut traces. Please be mindful when packing food not to include anything that might cause an allergic reaction to other children attending the centre.

Clothes and Nappies

You’ll need to pack a full change of clothing including socks and sun hat in a named bag. It’s a good idea to have all of your child’s belongings clearly labelled with a name tag.  Include at least two disposable nappies if your child uses them.  Sunscreen should be applied before arrival.

Other Costs

A $15.70 cancellation fee will apply for cancellations before 8:30 am on the booked day of care, otherwise the full fee is due.

A late fee applies if your child is collected more than 5 minutes after the booked departure time.
