Occasional care

Balmain - Rozelle Occasional Care

Balmain - Rozelle Occasional Care is a centre-based education and care service provider, registered by Department of Education & Communities to provide flexible care for families with children birth to five years of age.

Note from the Coordinator

We believe children learn through their play and at your orientation sessions you can join in the fun of exploring, discovering and encouraging your child’s love of learning in a safe, caring and respectful environment. We invite you and your family to attend information and orientation sessions to promote your sense of belonging and trust with our qualified and experienced educators.

Our genuine interactions with each child attending, together with the principles and practices of the Early Years Learning Framework, create the basis for our dynamic curriculum. We ensure the intentional and spontaneous learning that occurs is captured in our authentic documentation.

All of our educators are dedicated and passionate in their belief of each child’s right to high quality education and care. We pride ourselves in ensuring that positive, multi-directional relationships between children, their families and educators, based on mutual trust, honesty, respect, openness and sensitive responsiveness, are established. We recognise that parents/families are the first teachers of their child and encourage daily communications to ensure the nurture and education of your child is embedded into our daily practice.
