Alphabet Academy Hunter Valley by Story House Logo SM

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.

Freshly Prepared Meals

Your child will eat the fresh, nutritionally balanced meals as prepared by our very own on-site chef.

Tailored Learning and Curriculum for each age group

Baby Nursery Child Care


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.

Child Care for Toddlers


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.

Pre Kindy and early Preschool


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.

Meet our Service Manager

My name is Amy Kearney and I am extremely proud to be the service manager here at Alphabet Academy in Aberglasslyn.

I have been in the Early Childhood industry for 10 years and during this time I have had the opportunity to work with all different age groups throughout various roles. I hold a Bachelor of teaching degree from the University of New England along with current first aid and child protection qualifications.

Working at Alphabet Academy since it opened in 2011 has allowed me the opportunity to build strong relationships and work in partnership with educators, families and the community which are crucial to a child’s development.

I am a strong believer that children have the right to access a high quality education and that children learn best through play based experiences. I am passionate about community involvement, risky play, loose parts, natural learning environments and allowing children the opportunity to real life education.

We welcome you to visit our centre, meet our dedicated team of educators and see for yourself our commitment to providing the best possible care and education for your child. We welcome your involvement in the service and appreciate your feedback.
