Ignatius Early Years - OSHC and Vacation Care

Our aim is to provide children with a program which is attentive to their interests, needs and skills. The program operates within the IEY environment using the Piazza space, the Atelier (studio), the verandah and the outdoor areas.  The IEY OSHC (Out of preSchool Hours Care) program is staffed by educators that work with children within the preschool program. This enables the classroom investigations and inquiries to be extended but also allows for time to relax and enjoy the interactions and to play with friends. Children enjoy the opportunity to engage with siblings and peers from different rooms at this time.

Children with siblings at the Junior School OSHC program are able to join them after 5:30pm. This familiarises children with the Junior School OSHC environment and its educators, it is also a convenience for parents picking up after 5:30pm.

Ignatius Early Years is open 7:30am – 6:00pm Monday to Friday.
OSHC is offered from 7:30am – 8:30am, and again from 3:00pm – 6:00pm.
