My old daycare had a free pick up drop off service and lots of abc centres used to as well. I'm in qld though. Go through the yellow pages I'm sure most would advertise if they do.

Yes, go through family day care. As for childcare centres & Kinder programs they often run the 'official' program for set hours each day, so to get the funding for a 'proper' 15 hour a week program they have to attend for a certain number of days (eg. 3 days with a 5 hour a day program).

I worked part time in Victoria when DD1 was in 3 yo and 4yo kinder. She went to a centre that offered chuld care between 8 and 9.30am and then it switched to the kinder program which ran til 3. From 3 to 6 it was basically child care again. It was very flexible.
It was a Lady Gowrie centre in North Carlton. They had no fixed days which she needed to attend. There was also Isobel Henderson in Nth Fitzroy around the corner from us and they ran a more structured kinder program for 3 and 4 yo's where they were slotted into morning or afternoon sessions on certain days of the week and then could stay beyond those hours for childcare.
It's an expensive way of doing it as you're still paying child care even though the kinder part is funded (at least for 4 yo).
Not suggesting these centres are where you want to be but just letting you know what others do offer. The best way to find out is to ring around.
In WA kindy (4 yo) is part of the school (at our school) and child care centres offer drop off and pick up as it's only school hours.
