Our Christian early learning centre at Rockdale Plaza is transitioning from an Occasional Care to a Long Day Care service, commencing in January 2019. We currently operate from 8:00am-5:00pm but will extend our hours when we fully transition.
Rockdale Plaza Long Day Care is conveniently located adjacent to the car park of Rockdale Plaza shops. Our passionate educators provide children with holistic care and dynamic learning opportunities. The extensive outdoor environment compliments the internal educational spaces offering children an excellent balance of learning environments.

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.
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.
