The Piper Centre overview

Welcome to The Piper Centre

TIGS Prep at the Piper Centre is a Preparatory programme for children aged 3 - 5 years located on The Illawarra Grammar School campus in Mangerton. Conveniently situated within 10 minutes of the Wollongong CBD, Hospital and University of Wollongong, TIGS Prep is a popular option for families.

TIGS Prep consists of five flexible learning spaces. Each age-grouped classroom has a full-time early childhood educator and a full-time early childhood qualified assistant. The Centre operates year-round from 7.30am - 5.30pm with a two week break over Christmas.

Each day is structured around a core learning time from 9.30am - 3.00pm during which all specialist lessons and intentional teaching occurs. This is supplemented by learning and discovery time outside these core hours. On arrival, children can engage in various learning experiences set-up by educators in our indoor or outdoor learning environments. This learning and discovery time allows parents to settle their children and engage with educators.

All children are expected to attend during the core learning hours of 9.30am - 3.00pm. Families can decide on arrival and departure times which best suit their needs within the operating hours of 7.30am - 5.30pm.
