Updates for 2023

NOTICE: Occasional care to close permanently in 2023.

It is with sadness that we announce the difficult decision to permanently close our occasional care program at the end of  2022. We have enjoyed meeting and building relationships with some of our youngest members of the community, who have also grown to become members of our kindergarten programs.

If you were planning on using occasional care next year, we recommend looking into some other services nearby:

- Mordialloc Neighbourhood House

- Chelsea Occasional Care

- Cheltenham Community Centre


We want to acknowledge all the past and present occasional care families and staff who have participated in our Occasional care program. Our final sessions of Occasional Care at Aspendale Gardens will be Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th December 2022.

Occasional Childcare

Occasional Childcare is an affordable alternative to long day care.

Our Occasional Childcare program provides short term childcare enabling parents to attend appointments, shopping, work, study and a chance for you to grab a couple of hours for yourself!

Facilitated by our qualified Kindergarten staff, we offer an educational program that promotes children’s learning and development in all areas of the Victorian Early Learning Years Learning and Development Framework.

The children have opportunities to engage in art and craft, problem solving, imaginary play and sharing and taking turn activities both indoors and outdoors. 

Please note that on Thursdays we are limited to 4 children under 3 years old.

On Wednesdays we can have 8 children under 3 years old.


(If your child will be turning 3 during the term, please book them in as an under 3.)

Wednesdays - two options:

8.30am to 11.45 (3 hr 15 mins) - $37.00 per child

8.30am to 1.30pm (5 hrs) - $55.00 per child


8.30am to 11.45am - $37.00 per child
