Our engaging learning spaces

We recognise that children learn through investigative and exploratory play and with this in mind have designed open ended play spaces that give children the opportunity to explore, use imagination, as well as engage in decision making and problem solving.

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

At Story House Early Learning 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.
