Child Care and Kindergarten for families in Deception Bay

Quality early childhood education and child care provides the foundation for learning for life.
Let your child’s learning story begin with us

A Queensland Government Kindergarten Approved Program
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

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

Welcome to Story House Early Learning Deception Bay, my name is Amanda Plumb.  My journey in Early Childhood Education and Care began in 2006, working as an Assistant at first and building my capacity as a leader through Room Leader and 2IC roles before becoming a Service Manager for the past 6 years. I have now worked in the sector for over 12 years.

I value family as being the first educator in a child’s life, and that as an educator it is my role to work collaboratively with the family to ensure best learning outcomes for all children.  My personal pedagogy stems from the belief that childhood is not a race to see how quickly children can read, write and count but that it is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right for each individual child through play.  Children learn as they play but most importantly in play children learn how to learn.

Our team look forward to supporting and growing with each and every one of our families.  Let the Story begin.
