About

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.

  • Set on over an acre of land, our beautiful historic building encourages every child to explore a piece of Maitland history
  • Incorporates this lovely old church, yet with a full complement of modern facilities, offering a safe environment in which they have maximum potential to grow
  • Refreshingly ‘organic’ outdoor environment which allows children to experience the natural environment

This is the absolute best school for young children. I will be so sad the day my son has to move on to big school. My daughter went through this school also and now uses the OOSH SERVICE. They have become like family to us. The help and support offered is just incredible and I cannot recommend them enough. My son is slightly out of the box with his learning and they have been nothing short of amazing when it comes to supporting him. The outdoor play space is unlike any other I have seen around but ultimately it’s the educators and director that makes this place second to none. Best decision I ever made choosing this school for my children 🙌🏼💝🙏🏻🥰

Had my daughter here for a little bit and she has never hated going somewhere so much in her life. Very un organised, so disappointed. Moved her else where and she enjoys going everyday now.

I feel so incredibly lucky I get to send my daughter to this school. I really can't speak highly enough about them. Everyone is so friendly, they take the time to get to know each individual child and parent, you feel welcomed into this little family every single day. I never hesitate before recommending Story House, they are incredible!

My granddaughter who is in my permanent care has been attending story house since she was 3 she is now 9 and still attends before and after school care and also vacation. I would not send her anywhere else the staff go above and beyond to look after the kids and make you feel part of a family

Excellent. Our daughter's second home/family, she just loves it there. I can't imagine life without the support and joy the StoryHouse team bring to our lives.

Care for Kids review
Thumbs up Would recommend to a friend
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!

My daughters have both started at story house this year and I could not be happier with the care they have received. We use early preschool and vacation care At the service and have only positive words to say and have raved recommended the service regularly! I feel absolutely comfortable and confident sending my children there while I go to work, knowing they are cared for so well and have the most fabulous time every single day!
