Occasional Care is one of the best childcare options for those who need to run errands, work a few extra hours, or attend to other important commitments. At Japara, our Occasional Childcare program has a strong reputation for being an innovative and high quality program. Our excellent Children’s Services Team are all qualified childcare workers who are committed to providing a creative program that nurtures and supports children in a safe and caring environment.

We care for children from 6 weeks to 6 years old. Families are invited to register their child on an ongoing basis or for one-off sessions. Each child is able to attend the program for up to 15 hours per week.

Whether you need a few extra hours to run your errands, or you'd like to take advantage of our full 5 hour program, Japara's Occasional Care is here to support you and your family with your childcare needs.

There are so many reasons Occasional Care is a great option for families. Read more about it here.
