Welcome to Story House Early Learning Black Rock

Early childhood education and 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 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, our government funded Kinderg program, the unique learning environments, our nutritious meals prepared on site 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 Black Rock.

My daughter has been at Story House for nearly four years and she loves it. Manager Bell is fantastic, the educators always greet us with huge smiles and provide excellent communication about what they’ve been up to. My daughter adores her kinder teacher, Jessica. We hear so many stories about things Jessica has taught the children (including songs in Korean) and my daughter now wants to be a teacher just like Jessica when she grows up! Chef Margarita is one in a million who puts so much love into her cooking that my daughter eats foods she wouldn’t touch at home! Story House has small class sizes, dedicated, long standing staff and is also considerably cheaper than a lot of services in the Bayside area, so we feel like we are getting excellent value for money.
As a nervous first time mum returning to full time work, I found the staff at Story House Black Rock absolutely fabulous. Every single educator / staff member is enthusiastic, passionate & professional. My daughter is warmly greeted every morning. Each day we are given information about the food/drink they consume, sleep times and what learning activities they got up to that day. There is also a great app that is updated regularly with photos & videos of the different adventures they go on, from walks to the park / water play / singalongs etc. The centre is very clean & the food is of a high standard with lots of variety. I highly recommend Story House Black Rock.
