Centre Information

Integricare St Ives Preschool

Integricare’s early learning education centre at St Ives is highly rated by its families, who vouch for its excellence in quality care and learning. We offer a curriculum operating in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and this provides crucial early learning development and a School Readiness Program that transitions your child smoothly to kindergarten. The preschool offers 40 places and has open enrolment policy that welcomes children from all backgrounds, religions and cultures.

Through regular observations, our educators plan and implement a child centred program which assesses the ongoing learning and development of children. We monitor and guide how we can best support each child’s social and emotional development, communication skills, physical, cognitive and spiritual development.

Our educators believe that children benefit most when given the opportunity to experiment, discover, dream, imagine and express their original ideas in a free and open environment. We run an indoor/outdoor program where the children are free to choose whether they want to be inside or outside. This creates a calm, peaceful environment as children make their own choices and are actively engaged in their play. Fine motor activities such as drawing, writing, counting, fine motor construction and reading are always offered in our outdoor play space.

Progressive morning tea allows children to choose when they eat morning tea – this means that children who have had a late breakfast may choose to play and eat a little later. At lunch time we do all sit down together as a learning family and talk about our day, our healthy lunches, the celebrations important to our culture and our families.

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.

About us

Our preschool in St Ives works collaboratively with Christchurch Anglican church in St Ives and is located in a secluded area where children can interact with an array of purpose built internal and external spaces.

School Readiness is embedded into every part of our preschool and based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). As educators, we observe and guide meaningful learning through play, provide time and opportunities for children to process information and to practice newly acquired skills. We focus on the personal & social skills, physical skills, communication skills as well as the pre literacy and numeracy skills required for success at primary school. All of this is done through play. We aim to support and extend children’s literacy and numeracy learning through providing multiple opportunities for children to engage in literacy throughout the day.

We encourage the children to see themselves as successful learners and empower them through positive guidance techniques to accept responsibility for their own actions
Our dedicated team of educators come from a range of cultural backgrounds, all passionate about ‘going the extra mile’ for children.

Our highly qualified and experienced staff provide an individualised educational program that aims to meet the diverse needs of all children and 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, communicating their 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. Our literacy program is designed to build on children’s home and community literacy experiences and it includes practices that are relevant to children’s everyday lives as well as familiar texts from their homes and communities.

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.
