About Integricare Christ Church St Ives Preschool

Welcome to Integricare Christ Church St Ives Preschool

Integricare’s early education centre, in partnership with Christ Church St Ives Anglican church, offers an extended hours preschool program. It is ideal for for children aged 3-5 years, teaching a 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. St Ives Preschool operates from 8:30am-4pm and offers 40 places for children.

St Ives 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, St Ives staff endeavour to equip and care for families holistically – going the extra mile to engage and support children and their families. Thirdly, St Ives Preschool prioritises community engagement, regularly partnering with local initiatives and maintaining close ties to Christ Church St Ives.

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.

About us

Our early education centre at St Ives provides a Preschool service with close ties to Christ Church St Ives. Our dedicated team of educators are passionate about ‘going the extra mile’ for children.

Highly qualified and experienced staff provide an individualised educational program that aims to meet the diverse needs of all children who attend. An inclusive curriculum aims to ensure that each child in the centre is fully involved in the program. Parents are encouraged to participate in the program by volunteering at the centre and communicating with staff the expectations for their child’s learning. The children learn through play and interest based activities that are developmentally appropriate for each child’s age. Our literacy program is designed to build on children’s home and community literacy experiences and includes literacy practices that are relevant to children’s everyday lives as well as familiar texts from their homes and communities.

I can 100% say my boys would not be where they are today without the commitment and dedication of the staff at CCSIPS. This is a lovely caring Preschool, which provides your child with great skills for kindy, and where your child is not just a number. Melissa Tickle
