in partnership with Auburn Baptist church
Integricare’s early learning education centre at Auburn, in partnership with Auburn Baptist church, provides a preschool service perfect for children aged 3-5 years. We offer a preschool curriculum operating in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This provides crucial early learning development and a School Readiness Program for attending children – ensuring that the transition to primary school is socially and academically smooth. Auburn Preschool operates from 8:10 am-3:30 pm and offers 40 places for children.
Auburn Christian Preschool champions Integricare’s purpose of enabling children, families and communities to experience the love of Jesus, as well as Integricare’s core mission objectives. Firstly, the pursuit of excellence in early learning ensures that these most crucial developmental years for children are full of learning opportunities. Secondly, Auburn staff endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children’s long day care and their families. Thirdly, Auburn Preschool prioritises community engagement, regularly partnering with local initiatives and maintaining close ties to Auburn Baptist Church.
Our qualified educators help to provide children with every opportunity to thrive. These care services include extending their language, literacy and numeracy, teaching them to be creative and to take initiative, and bolstering their confidence and independence as well as their social aptitude amongst their peers. All of Christian early childhood education sets children up for a successful transition into primary school.
Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best.

Our early education centre at Auburn Christian Preschool operates in partnership with Auburn Baptist Church and our dedicated team of educators come from a range of cultural backgrounds, all passionate about ‘going the extra mile’ for children.
Highly qualified and experienced staff provide an individualised educational program that aims to meet the diverse needs of all children who attend. An inclusive curriculum aims to ensure that each child in the centre is fully involved in the program. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program by volunteering at the childcare and communicating the expectations for their child’s learning with staff. The children learn through play and interest-based activities that are developmentally appropriate for each child’s age. Each class has a day book where families can read what the children have done during the day. An individual portfolio is provided for each child where staff document children’s individual experiences and learning at the centre. Our literacy program is designed to build on children’s home and community literacy experiences. It includes literacy practices that are relevant to children’s everyday lives as well as familiar texts from their homes and communities.
In this day and age, it’s great to have a centre that promotes traditional family and Christian values. I feel that my child is in safe hands.
The outdoor area is a pleasure to be in and my toddler finds it fascinating and inviting. Natural play materials are inviting and challenging. Such a great space to learn and develop in.
Thanks for letting us know about our child’s development at Integricare. We also appreciate the observation notes you’ve provided regarding her speech. We are so grateful that she has such a patient and companionate teacher. You really put the “care” in “daycare”. Please extend our thanks to the team for all the wonderful things you’ve taught our daughter.
The staff care for my children like family. I can’t speak highly enough of them!
We would like to thank you for all your hard work, support and encouragement that you have given in the rainbow group. My son loved every minute of preschool and always came home full of enthusiasm and stories to tell. I want to take the opportunity to say "thank you" for your kindness, friendly behaviour, patience and discipline.
Both my kids with autism spectrum disorder have had wonderful experiences with Integricare, and I myself have experienced great friendship and comfort from staff.
I love the teachers! How they care so much for my child. One of them takes extra effort to put my baby to sleep which is I think very exceptional!
My child learnt to eat new foods, socialise with friends and grew in confidence during her 3 years at Integricare!
The learning is organic and spontaneous which I love.
My 4 year old used to cry hysterically, in just a month he overcame this all thanks to loving and caring staff.
Educators are very caring and nurturing. I feel confident leaving my child with educators even when he is upset with separation anxiety.
The staff are attentive and aware of each child's individual personality, interests and needs.
