Oac Options

 Flexible hours to optimise your Child Care Subsidy

At Oac, we want every family to benefit from our holistic early learning approach to childcare, no matter what their needs are. With Oac Options, we offer three different enrolment approaches to choose from to help put you in control of your childcare needs.


Oac Permanent Care

Our most popular option, permanent care, is an ongoing weekly enrolment on the days you’ve selected.  With permanent care you also have the option of booking additional casual days, days outside of your weekly enrolled days, available as and when they are needed (subject to availability). Casual days can be booked through the My Family Lounge app or your Campus Director.


Oac Sessional Care

Some families don’t need to use the services at their Oac campus for the full opening hours (generally 11 hours each weekday from 7am-6pm). So rather than your child being at our campus all day, Oac Sessional Care provides you the flexibility to opt for a shorter session time of either 9 or 10 hours, so you can choose the times that best suit your needs. This flexibility may allow you to optimise your Child Care Subsidy (CCS) entitlements and reduce your out of pocket expenses.

To find out more about the CCS, see our Child Care Subsidy page.


Oac Flexi

Oac Flexi is a flexible childcare alternative that’s perfect for families who don’t wish to commit to a permanent weekly booking. Once your child has gone through the enrolment process, families have the ability to book full or half day sessions with 48 hours notice at selected campuses (subject to availability).

Families can choose from the following options:

  • Full Day Session: 7am (or 7.15am) – 6pm

  • Morning Session: 7am – 12.30pm

  • Afternoon Session: 12.30pm – 6pm

Note: Hours may vary depending on the opening times of the campus.


Oac Flexi is currently available at:


  • Market Street City Campus

  • Barangaroo South Campus

  • North Sydney Campus

  • Rose Bay Campus


  • Southbank Campus

  • Highpoint Campus

  • Melbourne Central Campus
