Early Learning Centre at Homebush West

Integricare’s early learning centre at Homebush West, traditionally known as “Kurralee” (the aboriginal word for “where the children stay”) offers a Christian preschool program with extended hours service.

 

Located in a serene suburban location, Homebush West Early Learning Centre offers an expansive and challenging outdoor environment perfect for children to engage in play – the highest form of learning for young minds. Each child has a developmental portfolio that documents their learning, interests and friendship groups, and families are invited to participate actively in their child’s journey at the centre through engagement with the portfolio. Staff work with families, incorporating expectations and goals for their child’s learning and skill acquisition into the learning curriculum and environments.

Secondly, Homebush West staff endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children and their families.

Why Choose Integricare?

At Integricare Homebush West, we are committed to providing excellent learning and care for your child. Families entrust their children to us because:
  • We are inclusive: We welcome all families from various backgrounds, diverse cultures and many faiths.
  • Of our staff: Our families consistently rate our passionate educators highly, who are known for going the extra mile for children.
  • Our size is just right: Our network of early learning centres is not so extensive that we are too large, and we are not so small that we don’t have the resources to provide an excellent learning environment. We have a healthy balance that easily enables the sharing of knowledge amongst our network of educators, which translates into the quality of our programs.
  • We are not-for-profit: Our commitment to excellence is driven by exceptional educational outcomes first and foremost, without compromising our need to also operate a business responsibly.
  • We see parents as first educators: We believe that families are children’s first educators and that our role is to work closely with them as co-educators.
  • Of our Christian identity: We have a strong Christian ethic and a rich history, having served families since 1882. It’s in our DNA to reflect the Christian faith in a way that is valued by families.
