Integricare’s early learning centre at Rozelle, in partnership with Darling St Anglican church, provides a preschool program with extended hours. It is ideal for busy families – from 7:30am-5:30pm and remaining open during school holidays. Rozelle Early Learning Centre offers 57 places for children, and teaches 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.
Rozelle 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, Rozelle staff endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children and their families. Thirdly, Rozelle Early Learning Centre prioritises community engagement, regularly partnering with St Thomas’ Church in Rozelle.
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.
– John Dewey
At Integricare Rozelle we are committed to high-quality early childhood education.
Integricare Rozelle Early Learning Centre offers a high standard of education and care for 2-5 year olds. We are open 7:30am – 5:30pm Monday-Friday for 50 weeks of the year. We are closed for two weeks over Christmas and on Public Holidays.
We believe a strong relationship between family, community and our centre is conducive to supporting children’s rights, culture and identity. We encourage and promote family involvement.
Our early learning centre has a holistic approach to teaching and learning. We recognise that play fosters children’s cognitive, physical, personal, social and emotional well being. Fostering a child’s strong sense of well being builds confidence and optimism, maximising their learning potential.
Our educators are highly motivated and dedicated to providing a very high standard of education and care. We maintain a high educator to child ratio with higher levels of qualifications than recommended.
Your children will love this: we have two Chickens! The children contribute to their care contributing to activities like feeding, cleaning and collecting eggs. These eggs are then used in cooking experiences within the rooms, or are placed in our community egg box for our families to take home and enjoy.
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.
My 4 year old used to cry hysterically, in just a month he overcame this all thanks to loving and caring 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.
The staff care for my children like family. I can’t speak highly enough of them!
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.
My child learnt to eat new foods, socialise with friends and grew in confidence during her 3 years at Integricare!
The learning is organic and spontaneous which I love.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Staff are very caring and nurturing. I feel confident leaving my child with staff even when he is upset with separation anxiety.
The staff are attentive and aware of each child's personality, interests and needs.
