Casual Bookings

Here When You Need Us the Most!

YMCA Children’s Programs understand that busy parents can’t plan for every moment of the week, sometimes sick days and appointments pop up, or just a recharge is needed.

Dear Melbourne Metro Families,

During the six week, stage four lockdown period, we need to remove access to casual bookings.

Any families that are required to work unexpectedly and need to add extra bookings, bookings must be made directly with the centre manager and each booking must be accompanied by a valid permit for that time period.

We thank-you for your co-operation and understanding.

What is YMCA Casual Bookings?
Casual bookings are a once-off booking, designed for any busy parent that needs an extra day here and there to get things done.

What is the price?
Casual bookings at our early learning centres are the same price as our permanent days of care. No additional casual booking fees apply.

The price for a day of care may be reduced if you are eligible for the child care subsidy (CCS).

Our Locations
Once you have completed your My Family Lounge account, you can use casual care at any of our Early Learning Centres across YMCA Victoria sites!

New Families

You aren’t required to have any permanent days booked with us. New families just have to create and complete your My Family Lounge account.

Remember, you cannot use our services if you have not scanned your child’s birth certificate and immunisation records. If you cannot scan these documents, you can visit your YMCA Early Learning Centre to add them to your enrolment for you.

You do not need any permanent days booked to use casual bookings.
