As someone who has a background in early childhood education, it was vital for me to find a service that provides high quality care - this is Story House Aberglasslyn. Amy and her team of trained educators are the epitome of what a quality service looks like and I could not speak more highly of them! My son loves going to school and this makes my life as a working Mum, much easier. I know I am leaving my son in safe hands and he is cared for and loved. We love it at Story House and would highly recommend to any parent looking for care!

Amy and her team of educators do a brilliant job each day. They have created a safe, fun and happy environment that allows my daughter to grow and learn every day. Thank you for taking such good care of her for us when we have to be at work. Makes it easier leaving her knowing she is in such great hands!

The educators work closely with families to provide a safe, quality, family-centred learning environment where every child is respected and nurtured. The team continually develops their skills and explores new ways to enrich each child’s early learning experience.
Indoor and outdoor play based experiences are an integral part of the program. Educators plan a diverse range of experiences to create opportunities for each child in both structured and spontaneous play.
The centre’s 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 Preschool 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.
At Story House, the educators believe that each child is on their own unique journey that shapes the person they are and who they will become. Just like chapters in a book, they understand that each child steps through their ‘story’ at their own pace and in their own time.
The team at Story House believes that learning is a lifelong journey and that early childhood education and care provides the foundation for learning for life. Children make sense of the world around them through the use of processes such as exploration, collaboration and problem solving across all aspects of the curriculum. They develop dispositions such as curiosity, persistence and creativity and use play to investigate, imagine and explore ideas, follow and extend their own interests.
The educators are key to supporting children on their journey and believe that relationships with families and community are essential for supporting children to be global citizens and helping them to reach their potential.
I am a strong believer that children have the right to access a high quality education and that children learn best through play based experiences. I am passionate about community involvement, risky play, loose parts, natural learning environments and allowing children the opportunity to real life education.
We have a wonderful, supportive team of educators who pride ourselves on our relationships with children, families and our colleagues. We are constantly reflecting to ensure we provide the best possible opportunities for children to learn through our daily curriculum. We aim to create positive childhood memories for children, full of adventure and opportunities to set them up for a successful future.
We have a positive culture within our service and are always celebrating special events, getting out into the community on excursions and allowing children to just be children and have fun.
Amy Kearney, Service Manager, Story House Early Learning Aberglasslyn
Story House Early Learning Aberglasslyn understands that promoting children’s nutrition and health is an important aspect of providing a quality child care and early education service. It is crucial that children are offered healthy, nutritious meals throughout the day and enjoy social, positive mealtime experiences and discussions as part of their overall growth, development and knowledge.
The centre’s menu is prepared by a professionally qualified centre cook in consultation with families, educators, the children and recognised authorities such as Nutrition Australia. The centre can accommodate individual dietary requirements due to family preferences, cultural background, allergies or food intolerances, by working closely and in consultation with families to make sure individual children’s needs are met.
A positive attitude towards healthy eating is embedded into the curriculum and daily routines, for instance with their interactive cooking classes; menu development; discussion of food choices; explaining the role of food and culture; educators modelling healthy eating; and making meal times a pleasant, social occasion.

Families can access Occasional, Flexible or Casual Care on either a regular or casual basis a variety of reasons including, shift or part-time work, respite care, crisis and emergency care, shopping or attending appointments.Pre-school / Kindergarten / Prep
Pre-school is a planned educational program for children in the years before a child commences school. Children are usually aged between 3 and 5 years of age. Pre-school may take place in a range of settings including a purpose built building, in a community setting, a school, as part of a long day care centre or a mobile or visiting service.
In January 2012 the National Quality Framework (NQF) came into effect across Australia.
The purpose of the NQF is to improve and standardise the quality of child care through a range of measures including better staff to child ratios, higher staff qualifications and an assessment and rating system designed to promote continuous improvement.
Under the NQF child care services are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standards (NQS).
The NQS measures the quality of early childhood education and care in Australia. It will cover
most long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten and outside school hours care services.
Under these standards child care services will be assessed and rated against the seven quality areas, 18 standards and 58 elements that make up the NQS.
