About us

Our Christian early learning centre at North Strathfield is located adjacent to the historic Ardill House, the former residence of our founder George Ardill. We offer a preschool program with a long day care service offering extended hours, convenient for working parents.


Our friendly team of educators at North Strathfield Early Learning Centre have a passion for working closely with families. Highly qualified and experienced, they provide an individualised educational program that aims to meet the diverse needs of all children who attend. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program by volunteering at the centre and communicating the expectations for their child’s learning to the educators. The children learn through play and interest based activities that are developmentally appropriate for each child’s age. Our programs are 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.

Why Choose Integricare?

At Integricare North Strathfield Early Learning Centre, 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.
