Welcome to Story House Early Learning Forest Hill

Early childhood education and care provides the foundation to learn 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 experiment 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 are committed to assisting and supporting families and being active participants within our local community. We consider ourselves to be an early education hub, networking multiple early childhood agencies together to support families and their children.  

You'll be amazed by our strong connections with the children and our families, our strong connections with the local community and schools, the engaging learning programs, the unique learning environments, our nutritious menu prepared on site each day by our service chef and the extra curricular activities we offer.  Nothing matters more to us than the education, health and well-being of every child who enters our service.  

So,  from our family to yours, we welcome you to Story House Early Learning Forest Hill.

My children have been attending Story House for 4 years now. We could not compliment the running of this centre highly enough. The educators are caring, professional and we know that they genuinely have the best interest of our children at heart. The centre is clean and the management team are a pleasure to deal with. The management staff and educators are responsive and there are always open lines of communication between them and the parents. We are truly grateful for this centre!
