My Name is Fleur Crowle and I am the Service Manager here at Story House Early Learning Springvale South.

My career within early childhood education commenced twenty years ago in 1998. I have, throughout the years, moved up into senior roles and have been in senior management for over the past twelve years. My passion is ensuring we are offering the highest quality environment for our centres community to the best of our ability.

I believe that it takes a community to raise children and, now I am a mother myself, I understand the value, importance and impact of those words. I believe building positive relationships with families is crucial to supporting children holistically within our environment. I also believe that by being actively available to families ensures I am able to best support the transitions between the home and early learning environments.

I’m very committed to nurturing my team of passionate educators to ensure we can become an positive influential part of each and every family as well as enabling them to be successful within their own roles.



We believe that the value of play is of utmost importance to children as it is their way of learning about their world.  While children play they are able to experiement with new ideas, test theories and their understanding of concepts, express their creative ability, release their emotions and share their feelings.  While engaging in play children are developing across all domains and creating the building blocks for their future.


We partner with you to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. We continually develop our skills and explore new ways to enrich your child’s early learning experience.


Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of our program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for your child in both structured and spontaneous play.


Our programs are inspired by the wisdom and teachings of early childhood theorists and the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), and aim to develop children’s emotional, social and cognitive intelligence.


The Kindergarten curriculum continues to emphasise play based learning, however offers additional intentional learning times where the focus is on literacy and numeracy, socialisation, self-regulation and independence.
