When you need us, we're here!

Occassional Care Cottage is a community-based, not-for-profit centre with Orange City Council's Children's Services Network. We provides flexible child care in an emergency, short-term or on a temporary basis for children aged between six weeks and five years.

We are open from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Thursday. Our service is designed to allow you to attend appointments, go shopping or just to have a little break.


We can offer child care from one hour up to six hours a day. Our new hourly rate is just $9.00 an hour. Bookings can be at short notice. We have parents who use our service for shift work changeovers, casual work, attending courses and, most importantly, to help their children to develop social skills in an independent way.
