Hello
You are entitled to carers leave.
More info:
https://www.fairwork.gov.au/leave/sick-and-carers-leave

Generally employers need to be flexible with such arrangements and commitments. They need to be open and allow you some time off to tend to an ill child.

I wish to help you in this situation.
