But the Crown wants the accused man named before his trial so that other potential complainants might come forward.
In a decision this month, obtained by the Herald, Justice Christian Whata continued the suppression order for the Auckland man who faces a total of 43 charges against 17 boys.
Suppression will lapse, however, on January 17 unless he challenges the judgment at the Court of Appeal.
"There should be no expectation of a further extension by this court," Justice Whata said.
The man, who is in his 50s, has pleaded not guilty to all the allegations and is due to go on trial in April in the High Court at Auckland.
The ex-caregiver's alleged offending stems from the mid-2000s and after an intensive police investigation, dubbed Operation Elephant, the man was charged just before Christmas last year.
Of the 17 complainants, 14 were allegedly sexually abused while others were subjected to physical abuse when the man was working for Child, Youth and Family - now Oranga Tamariki.
One boy was allegedly assaulted with a bamboo stick.
It is further alleged some boys who were in the man's care suffered multiple sexual assaults over several weeks or months.
The man is also accused of threatening to kill other boys and supplying methamphetamine and cannabis to teens.
