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 development and a School Readiness Program for attending children – ensuring that the transition to primary school is smooth both socially and academically. 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 to ensure that these most crucial developmental years for the children are full of learning opportunities. Secondly, Strathfield staff 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 sets children up for a successful transition into primary school.
Play is the highest form of research.

Integricare Preschool Strathfield is a Christian early learning centre located on the same site as what was formerly known as the Strathfield Sessional Bowling Club. The expansive outdoor educational environment exists on what was once a bowling green.
The team of professional educators at Strathfield Preschool love to provide an invigorating learning environment that offers an excellent balance of indoor and outdoor space. We provide an individualised 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. Staff embrace the concept of children being successful learners. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program by volunteering at the centre and communicating with staff the expectations for their child’s learning. Each class has a day book where families can read about what the children have done during the day. An individual portfolio is provided for each child where staff document children’s individual experiences and learning at the centre.

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.
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.
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!
