Gosford City Council Occasional Care Services
Occasional Care Placements
Gosford City Council offers occasional care within the long day care centres where a current vacancy exists. Occasional care allows the flexibility to leave children for short periods of time, ie to allow a parent to attend an appointment, attend an interview, etc.
Occasional care is available to both new families and existing long day care families.
Occasional care is only available within the hours of 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday. Arrivals for occasional care will not be accepted prior to 8.00am.
You may cancel your booking up to 4.00pm the day before the due period of care. Cancellations made on the day of care incur a cancellation fee of the full booked fee.
