Integricare’s early learning centre at Parramatta is located conveniently in a suburban location and offers families long day care with a good balance of indoor and outdoor environments.
Parramatta Early Learning Centre provides a developmental portfolio for each child that documents their learning, interests and friendship groups. There is a strong family focus at the centre with families and staff working together in partnership for the best interests of the child. We offer an inclusive environment honouring diversity incorporating the use of first languages, cultural traditions and practices into our program. We also provide a transition to school program and strong links with the local school.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks to the staff at Integricare Parramatta. My son, up until the last couple of months in 2018 had absolutely no interest in holding a pencil, drawing, doing craft or anything to prepare him for school. The changes in him through the last few months of 2018, under the school readiness program were remarkable; through the school holiday break he has been happily sitting down and colouring or drawing and I honestly don't think this would have been possible without the dedication of Poonam and the teachers in the Wallaby room.
Staff are very caring and nurturing. I feel confident leaving my child with staff even when he is upset with separation anxiety.
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.
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.
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.
I love the teachers! How they care so much for my child. One of them takes extra effort to put my baby to sleep which is I think very exceptional!
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.
The staff care for my children like family. I can’t speak highly enough of them!
The staff are attentive and aware of each child's personality, interests and needs.
My 4 year old used to cry hysterically, in just a month he overcame this all thanks to loving and caring staff.
My child learnt to eat new foods, socialise with friends and grew in confidence during her 3 years at Integricare!
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.
The learning is organic and spontaneous which I love.
