Occasional Care

Prahran Community Learning Centre aims to provide good quality child care for children aged between 6 months – 5 years.

The programs are presented to cater for children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical developmental needs on a flexible basis.

The centre recognises that good quality child care is a valuable experience for children from a variety of backgrounds and that there are many reasons for parents to desire child care.

Occasional care will operate:

HOURS: 9 am – 5 pm


NOTE: Minimum 3 hours stay per day, Maximum 5 hours stay per day, Maximum 15 hours stay per week
Please arrive on time at the end of a session. Children are often tired and the centre staff need to clean after each session.

The Occasional Care service does NOT operate during school holidays and will be closed on public holidays.

3 hours $35.00 (Minimum)
4 hours $48.00
5 hours $60.00 (Maximum)
