Casual Days - Delivering more flexible care to families

In line with more opportunities for flexible work come more demands for more flexible and responsive early childhood services. To accommodate this growing market CareforKids.com.au is launching a new and improved version of our Occasional Care search.

Our revamped Occasional, Casual or Flexible Care search enables parents to book sessional care at short notice, and on an as-needs basis. Families can make bookings with providers they are currently enrolled with, as well as those they aren't.

A growing number of apps and CCMS systems are available to support parents who want to make casual and occasional bookings with providers. We predict the market for casual and occasional care will increase as parents become accustomed to this highly responsive way of delivering early childhood education and care services and we will support providers seeking to take advantage of this.

What you need to know

Parents can now book occasional, casual or flexible care via the CareforKids.com.au website. Using our powerful search capabilities, we will link to bespoke apps, CCMS providers, and child care services web pages to allow for easy enrolment and booking of casual spots.

If you offer occasional, casual and or flexible care at your service, please update your profile to indicate this and we will display the second set of vacancies in your profile along with links to how parents can book. This ensures parents looking for casual care will see both your permanent vacancies and your casual spots. To this end, it's very important to log in to your CareforKids.com.au profile regularly and keep your vacancy information up-to-date.

CareforKids.com.au is running an education campaign, which includes newsletter articles, email and social campaigns, to inform parents about the flexibility afforded by occasional care and to showcase the providers offering this service.

If you need assistance with updating your profile to include Occasional, Flexible or Casual care please contact support@careforkids.com.au
