Djanaba Occasional Childcare Service

The Djanaba Childcare Centre is an occasional childcare facility within Sutherland Shire Family Services. It provides both regular quality childcare places for children aged 0-6 years of age, with limited spaces for under 2s, as well as occasional care on an as needed basis.

The service operates Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 8:00am – 4:00pm.

The program is centred on the Early Years Learning Framework which provides a safe, nurturing environment for children and families in our community.

Parents are to pack their child’s lunch and send in a clearly labelled lunchbox with your child’s name on it. We maintain a healthy lunch policy, and therefore request that you send appropriate food for lunch (eg sandwiches, fruit, cheese, salad, etc) We are a peanut free service, so please be mindful of this when packing lunches.

There is an annual joining fee of $35. This fee is payable on the fourth visit.

If you need to cancel a booking, please call by 8:00am so another family can use the service (we sometimes have a waiting list).  Full payment will be charged if not enough notice is received. A cancellation fee of $15 applies for regular bookings.
