Integricare’s early learning centre at Northmead is located on the grounds of Parramatta Baptist church, and the long day care is directly supported by the churches ministry activities. The church contributes a Christian influence to the early learning and development of the children, with regular visitations from ministry staff as well as sharing in collaborative community events.
Lynette and her team cater for 39 children and work closely with the church to offer families a holistic and engaging experience. The team of professionals at Northmead Early Learning Centre provide a long day care environment that is warm, nurturing and inviting to all families within the community. Dedicated and experienced staff provide individualised programs that foster each child’s interests and enhance their personal learning journey. We encourage parental involvement alongside actively seeking to work collaboratively with Parramatta Baptist Church.
Both my kids with autism spectrum disorder have been through Integricare Drummoyne and have had wonderful experiences, and I myself have experienced great friendship and comfort from staff.
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.
Staff are very caring and nurturing. I feel confident leaving my child with staff even when he is upset with separation anxiety.
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.
