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.

Welcome to Story House Early Learning, Epping!

My name is Shamona Verma. I hold a Diploma in Children’s Services. I also hold a Bachelors degree in Education from overseas and have been teaching children of varied age groups in India. I moved to Australia with my husband and two beautiful children, in 2011. I’ve always been passionate about educating children and caring for them, therefore decided to study Children’s Services.

I began my career in Early Childhood Education in Australia by completing Certificate lll in Children’s Services, and worked as an Assistant at Goodstart Early Learning. While working at Goodstart, I gained hands on knowledge of stages of development of early childhood and decided to work towards a Diploma qualification. After accomplishing my Diploma in Children’s Services, I took up a role of a Qualified Assistant with Early Childhood Management Services (ECMS), and soon stepped up to the position of Room Leader for children under three years of age.

In year 2017, I got a chance to assistant the Centre Director and was responsible for running the centre in absence of the Centre Director. Later during the year, I  got appointed as the Educational Leader at the service. In this role, I developed an in depth knowledge of documenting children’s learning and mentored the team of educators in developing and implementing a quality educational program for the children.

My personal philosophy is greatly inspired by Reggio Emilia approach. I advocate providing stimulating but open-ended learning environments and then putting the children in the driver’s seat and watching them steer through the learning experiences in their own unique way.

What others are saying....

I can not say enough good things about Story House Epping. It is more than a just a daycare; it is like a FAMILY. I have never thought twice about having my son there while I am at work. He has been going to Story House since they day it opened when he was about 5 months old. While the staff are incredibly caring, they go above and beyond to treat every child as if they were their own.
