Occasional care


Woodend Occasional Care offers flexible, quality childcare to help parents who need a break or to attend appointments or work. It can also assist in developing your child’s social skills. 

Our service offers a quality program of play and learning for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years of age (who do not attend school) and can be accessed on a casual or term-by-term basis. Children attending the service are required to comply with the 'No jab, no play' legislation.

A new enrolment form must be completed every year. If you are new to the service, contact the Early Years support team to request an enrolment pack on 5421 9510 or eyprogramsupport@mrsc.vic.gov.au


Casual bookings for Wednesday sessions can be made up until 8am of the day required if the service has your current enrolment form.

We are taking phone enquiries for the Thursday and Friday sessions,  please call the Early Years team on 5421 9510.

Please choose sessions carefully as cancellation of bookings are non-refundable.
