Integricare’s early learning centre at Pendle Hill provides a Preschool service perfect for children aged 3-5 years, teaching a preschool curriculum operating in accordance with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This provides crucial early learning development and a School Readiness Program for attending children – ensuring that the transition to primary school is smooth both socially and academically. Pendle Hill Preschool operates from 8:10am-3:30pm and offers 45 places for children.
Pendle Hill Preschool champions Integricare’s purpose to enable children, families and communities to experience the love of Jesus, as well as Integricare’s core mission objectives. Firstly, the pursuit of excellence in early learning to ensure that these most crucial developmental years for the children are full of learning opportunities. Secondly, Pendle Hill staff endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children and their families. Thirdly, Pendle Hill Preschool prioritises community engagement, regularly partnering with local initiatives and maintaining close ties to Parramatta Baptist Church.
Our qualified educators help to provide children with every opportunity to thrive. This includes extending their language, literacy and numeracy, teaching them to be creative and to take initiative, bolstering their confidence and independence as well as their social aptitude amongst their peers. All of this sets children up for a successful transition into primary school.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.

The staff care for my children like family. I can’t speak highly enough of them!
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.
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.
