Integricare’s early learning centre at Strathfield 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 education, supporting their social, emotional, and cognitive development. This helps children to develop their self-confidence, independence, and resilience. Our entire program is based on children’s interests and strengths which is supporting a smooth transition to school. Strathfield Preschool operates from 8:10am-3:30pm and offers 45 places for children.
Strathfield 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 ensures that these most crucial developmental years are full of learning opportunities. Secondly, Strathfield educators endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children and their families. Thirdly, Strathfield Preschool prioritises community engagement, regularly partnering with local initiatives.
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 set’s children up for a successful transition into primary school.
Play is the highest form of research.

What our families are saying about our Integricare Strathfield team:
“Thank you for everything! Having been at the preschool for many years I would like to say that you have done a really great job, with many positive changes. I really like how you engage with every child and are always there when needed. You know the ins and outs of every child along with the parents, as well!
Well, what else can I say except keep up the GREAT work you are doing!”
Integricare Preschool Strathfield is a Christian early learning centre located on the same site as what was formerly known as the Strathfield West Women’s Bowling Club. The expansive outdoor educational environment exists on what was once a bowling green. With this beautiful space, we acknowledge we are on the traditional lands of the Eora people of the Wangal clan.
The team of professional educators at Strathfield Preschool provide an educational program that aims to meet the diverse needs of all children who attend the preschool. An inclusive curriculum aims to ensure that each child in the centre is fully involved in the program. Educators embrace the concept of children being successful learners. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program by communicating with educators around the expectations for their child’s learning. Educators document the children’s learning through the online platform Storypark.
In this day and age, it’s great to have a centre that promotes traditional family and Christian values. I feel that my child is in safe hands.
The outdoor area 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.
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!
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.
Both my kids with autism spectrum disorder have had wonderful experiences with Integricare, and I myself have experienced great friendship and comfort from staff.
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!
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.
My 4 year old used to cry hysterically, in just a month he overcame this all thanks to loving and caring staff.
Educators are very caring and nurturing. I feel confident leaving my child with educators even when he is upset with separation anxiety.
The staff are attentive and aware of each child's individual personality, interests and needs.
