Book an Occasional Care Day or Casual Day at Papilio


What is Occasional Care?

Occasional care, also known as a casual day, offers families flexible child care services on an as-needed basis, outside your normal set days. This type of child care is ideal for families who need temporary or sporadic child care due to work commitments, appointments, or personal errands.

Occasional care or casual days are available on a space-available basis, so you will have to check with your Centre Manager in advance to ensure availability.

Your CCS still applies to occasional care days, providing you have enough hours available. You can check this with your centre manager when you book.
