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.
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.
Hello everyone! My name is Vanda Kumar and I am the Service manager at Story House Early learning Centre at Springvale South.
I have worked in the Early childhood industry since 2010 as a Diploma Qualified Educator and in 2018 I graduated from my Bachelor of Early Childhood Studies. environment to learn and grow in.
Working with children has always been a passion and I enjoy helping create a caring and loving environment in which children can flourish. I believe children should equip them with two things; a love of learning and the ability to continue to learn on their own. If we can do these two things, children will continue to learn and want to learn long after they have left our classroom.
Please feel free to come and have a tour of our beautiful service here at SpringVale South!
I can truly say story house Springvale south has exceeded my expectations. My daughter started there when she was 5 months old and we are so happy with how she is being cared for. The staff have such a genuine affection with the kids and are so welcoming. Definitely worth a look if you are considering childcare in the area. Nada
I recommend this centre to other parents, the carers are so committed and pay the attention to my daugther. My daughter is always coming home with a new story to tell of what she has learnt! Nothing is every too much trouble and everyone is willing to help to accommodate individual family needs. Very supportive. Kylie
All the educators have been nothing but caring, passionate and so nurturing with my daughter and it has been so amazing to see just how much she has learnt and all the new skills she has developed in the time she’s been attending. Sari
