Child Care

About our OCC Program

PCLC offers quality care for children aged 6 weeks to 5 years on a casual booking basis. The program is an indoor/ outdoor program designed to allow children the freedom of choice, to explore the environment, developing self-expression, confidence, awareness and individual needs. Occasional Care gives you the benefits of a long daycare centre, however, you just book a place when you need it (subject to availability). Whether you need child care to study, go for a job interview, attend an appointment, or just to take some well-deserved ‘me time.’

Please feel free to drop in for a visit at any time during our opening hours to experience the Centre for yourself or contact our office for further information.

PCLC’s Occasional Care aims to provide affordable educational excellence in early childhood achieving this in an equitable, inclusive, safe, welcoming and nurturing environment. Our educators have a shared responsibility for the development of each and every child and promote education as a lifelong experience.

We have a strong commitment to developing partnerships with families, community members and children encouraging their input into a constructivist learning environment as we believe children are shaped by life experiences both at home and within their community. We value and respect the individuality of each child, their family and background, the ancestral custodians of this land, shared insights and traditions that all stakeholders bring to the Centre.

We believe in a responsive holistic program that adapts and allows opportunities and experiences for each child to play, explore, imagine, experiment, enquire, research, investigate, and make decisions in a resource-rich, fun, natural, play-based environment.
