Not everyone is lucky enough to have family close by, or friends they can call upon to watch the kids for a couple of hours if you need to attend an appointment or simply need a break. This is where Perth’s occasional child care centres, or casual centres, can help. You can drop your child or children off for a couple of hours or for the full day and know they will be cared for in a safe environment while you do what you need to.

Below are some of the occasional child care centres available in Perth, but always remember to do your own research to make sure the centre meets the needs of you and your child. Please check with the centre directly regarding child care rebates available.
