Occasional Care

Maroondah Occasional Care is a flexible, high quality, Council run child care service. The service provides a range of care options from infancy to 5 years old, offering families the opportunity to attend work, appointments or socialisation for their child in a mixed age setting.

We offer:

  •  permanent term bookings
  •  casual/emergency care bookings.

Our services are delivered by experienced and qualified staff. Our team provides a program that is stimulating and developmentally appropriate and designed to respond to your child's individual needs and interests.

Families provide food (and nappies) for their child which enables choice and allows us to offer affordable care.
