We’ve started chef master classes with our fab cook, Margarita. During the week our Kinder children helped Margarita make a delicious orange cake.
Child Care and Kindergarten for families in Black Rock and Sandringham
Quality early childhood education and child care provides the foundation for learning for life.
Let your child’s learning story begin with us
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.
Tailored Learning and Curriculum for each Age Group
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.

Meet Ashley our Service ManagerMy name is Ashley Brouwer and it is with great pleasure that I am joining the Story House Early Learning at Black Rock, as your Service Manager. I have been working in early education and child care for about five years now, and I absolutely love it. I am currently studying my Bachelor of Education – in early childhood, which I find has given me plenty of knowledge that I’m able to apply to my daily practice. I believe there is always room to grow and expand my knowledge, so I’m always eager and willing to learn more. I am very proud and happy to say that I was able to work my way up from co-educating and being a room leader in the rooms, to managing this beautiful service, as it has a very special place in my heart. I am very passionate about early childhood education and am driven towards delivering high quality care and education to the children and families. In addition to this, it is a strong goal of mine to provide a positive and happy working environment for all the educators within the team here, at Story House Black Rock.

At Story House Black Rock we love our environment and believe it’s so important to educate children on how to care and show respect for their world.
For this ANZAC Day we thought we’d support to our troops based overseas by sending a few care packages from all the children at Story House Black Rock.

What our families are saying...
I could not be more happy that we chose Story House Black Rock. Every single person that works here has taken an interest in my daughter and is so warm to her from the moment we walk in the door in the mornings. As first time parents, we were so nervous about putting our daughter in childcare but she absolutely loves it at Story House and we are really happy with the care they give her and the creative activities they come up with for her. I cannot recommend this centre highly enough. Alexandra

Story House Black Rock has such a lovely feel to it; friendly smiles and warm welcomes. Being a first time mum and leaving my child in care first time was so overwhelming but the room staff and manager kept my nerves at bay and what a wonderful experience it has been. Thank you so much! Peta
The staff at Story House Black Rock are nurturing and welcoming, management is now very reliable and professional and my child is settled, happy and loves spending his days here. Great centre! Natalie
