KNH Childcare Services

Occasional Care

A great way to get some time to do those odd jobs, go to appointments or just chill out for a few hours.

You can also get in early to secure your spot in our occasional care programs for 2019.

We are now a CCS (Child Care Subsidy) approved service. Please call in and we will explain how to register for CCS and Occasional Care.


Bring your little one to our Playgroup session and if you have a new-born, come meet other new mums at our Baby Playgroup.

From time to time we need help at the centre with things we don't have the time or skill or capability to do. These tasks may include gardening, general handyman tasks, helping to move boxes or furniture around etc. If you would like to help us out occasionally, please let Ev know at reception.
The best way to see what activities and programs are in the works, is to keep an eye on our Proposed Activities section. Here you can express your interest in joining one of the listed activities and see how close it's coming to reaching minimum numbers - and therefore being held. You can find it under the Programs and Activities menu item at the top of the page.
We are often looking for volunteers to help out with various tasks and roles at the centre - including on our Committee of Management. Volunteering in your community is a great way to meet new people, take an active part in shaping what happens at your community centre, and making use of (and even improving) those skills you have but aren't currently putting to use. We are currently seeking a volunteer with a horticultural background to facilitate our proposed Gardening in Small Spaces free workshops. Please call Lauren on 8786 6651.
