About Story House Early Learning Maitland

   4 ratings more

Welcome to Story House Early Learning Maitland

Our service is set on over an acre of land in a converted church which provides a wonderful, rich history for the children and families to explore in our community. 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 Maitland.

Story House Maitland has provided an incredible platform for helping our daughter to build strong emotional connections with others and herself. As an onlooker from Maitland Park running each morning looking into the grounds of Story House, I was always captivated by the enthusiasm, joy and energy levels of such happy kids and staff. Something was working well within this centre. Seeing the kids enjoying outdoor play and being where kids should be in their natural environment moved me significantly. As a nurse working within the obesity domain and mindset field, it is so well known exercise in kids helps strengthen the brain and making them more resilient to stress and adversity. Precisely what all kids need. The transition from an incredibly active home life, where she has such attached relationships to a Childcare setting, for us just had to hit the mark! We as parents have seen remarkable changes. As she becomes more curious, brave, and trusting of her instincts. Jade & the “A - team” that's what title I give to the staff, has helped enormously in navigating our journey into the childcare arena. Teaching her to solve problems independently and overcome her attachment to us safely and securely. She is embracing new risks/challenges/obstacles. Slowly she is pushing herself more each day. Semira, I know, feels she has the unconditional support of all the staff. The world is an unpredictable place in present times with COVID, and we can’t always prepare kids for everything they will encounter in their lifetime. What Story House offers is to help kids navigate life’s ups and downs independently - with great love, support, incredible team culture and massive natural play areas to roam and spread their wings. We highly recommend Story House and its fantastic team! Kids only deserve the best!
I have been using story house learning at Maitland for over a year now, if I knew about this place earlier I honestly would have been using it from the start. They have good communication, care about the children that go there and are always professional. Their values are high with the quality any parent would be looking for in a daycare. The food they give the children is at a high level of deliciousness mixed with the healthy factor the children need to grow in brainpower and body. They deserve 5/5 stars that's for sure.
