Extended Care Program

Ignatius Early Years – Extended Care Program

A number of our parents require long day care for their child so that they can work or study. We open at 7:30am and close at 6:00pm to cater for our parents that need a longer day.

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

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 Gold Room and toilets, the verandah and the outdoor areas.  The IEY Extended Care program is staffed by educators that work with children within the 8:30am to 3:00pm Learning 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.
