Integricare’s early learning centre at Auburn provides a Preschool service perfect for children aged 3-5 years, teaching 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 smooth both socially and academically. Auburn Preschool operates from 8:10am-3:30pm and offers 40 places for children.
Auburn Christian Preschool champions Integricare’s purpose to enable 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 to ensure that these most crucial developmental years for the 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 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. This includes extending their language, literacy and numeracy, teaching them to be creative and to take initiative, bolstering their confidence and independence as well as their social aptitude amongst their peers. All of this 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 learning 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 centre and communicating with staff the expectations for their child’s learning. 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 and includes literacy practices that are relevant to children’s everyday lives as well as familiar texts from their homes and communities.

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.
In this day and age, it’s great to have a child care centre that promotes traditional family and Christian values. I feel that my child is in safe hands.
The staff care for my children like family. I can’t speak highly enough of them!
North Strathfield Integricare have the most beautiful, cared for, treasured by teachers, children and Families garden. The outdoor 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.
