Intensive Swimming Lessions

Preparing children for a future of learning

At Sesame Lane, we guide, teach and encourage. Our goal is to inspire learning early by supporting our children at every stage of their developmental journey.

We prepare your child for a future of learning practically and emotionally. From new fine motor skills and those precious first few words, we celebrate every milestone and make the most of every learning opportunity. 

From the moment we first meet your child, through every learning experience, we encourage them every step of the way with specially tailored programs delivered by caring Educators.

We partnership with our families to encourage your active involvement in your child’s learning journey.  Our open door policy allows families to volunteer their special skills or expertise to share with your child and their friends. Each Service holds special events, workshops and information sessions to ensure families are involved and kept updated with what your child is leaning and experiencing at Sesame Lane.

Our Kindergarten Program

Sesame Lane is proud to offer the Government Approved Kindergarten program staffed by experienced, qualified early childhood Educators.

Sesame Lane is proud to offer the Government Approved Kindergarten program staffed by experienced, qualified early childhood Educators.

In line with Government guidelines, Approved Kindergarten Programs are designed to support learning and development as children prepare for school. Children feel part of a little community and feel their way through the basics of social interaction, as well as mastering practical skills including the proper use of scissors, the art of sitting still, correct pencil grip and self help skills like unwrapping a packed lunch.  Being able to look after their own belongings and taking a trip to the toilet unaided are all essential school readiness skills.

Through play-based learning in a caring environment, an Approved Kindergarten Program helps children:

  • prepare for school socially, emotionally and physically.
  • develop a love of learning through positive learning experiences.
  • make friends and learn to cooperate with others.
  • become more independent and confident in their own abilities.

Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves. But it is not just fun, swimming also provides loads of health benefits which can help to keep your children healthy and happy at the same time.

Swimming keeps your child’s heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture.

In sunny Moreton Bay we are surrounded by beautiful beaches so ensuring our children know the safety rules around water and knowing swimming basics is an important part of keeping our Happy Healthy Learners safe.

Our Japanese Language Program

Happy Healthy Learners are like sponges who absorb information and mimic behaviour at the speed of light. This is especially true with languages.

Read more

Studies show that if a person is to speak a second language like a true native (with the right accent and inflections), it’s best to begin as early as possible.

Sesame Lane’s fully qualified teacher Kayo Sensei introduces the concept of Japan and brings the language to life through songs, cooking, craft and other cultural activities.

The benefits

  • Activates the language-learning centre of the brain
  • Gives children an appreciation for international cuisine
  • Teaches cultural acceptance
  • Opens up future educational and employment opportunities

Owlbert's Garden Program

This program includes all aspects of our educational program from mathematics as the children learn about measuring through to science as they learn about weather patterns and exploring weights and scales.

The Garden Program ensures children are interested and involved in caring and nurturing the Service gardens and worm farms, while learning the importance of composting and recycling.  

We believe it's important for our Happy Healthy Learners to understand the full home economic cycle from growing and caring for the produce through to cooking and of course eating the delicious food. 

The program includes all aspects of our educational curriculum from mathematics as the children learn about measuring through to science as they learn about weather patterns and exploring weights and scales. 

Our Yoga Program

Embedded in our daily routines, Yoga is used to both invigorate and energise at times, and to calm and wind down at other times.

Sesame Lane embeds yoga practices into our daily routine with all ages. Our Educators complete intensive children's yoga workshops to enable us to introduce and practice breath work, mindfulness and movement with our children. The purpose of yoga is to work both the mind and body and to teach children to be aware of the mind-body connection. Yoga is used to both invigorate and energise at times, and to calm and wind down at other times.

Nutritionally Balanced Meals & Cooking Experiences

Happy Healthy Learners flourish when provided with a variety of foods rich in vitamins and minerals.

Read more

Going beyond simple sandwiches, we provide each child with nutritionally balanced meals and snacks cooked fresh daily in our service kitchens.  We use locally sourced seasonal produce and guarantee at least three hot lunches each week. 

We speak to families and most importantly, the children in our care when designing our seasonal menus.

Our rotating menu is carefully developed following Australian dietary guidelines and Nutrition Australia Queensland (NAQ). 

Cooking experiences are offered across all Services by our onsite Children's Cooks. Each week, Children's Cooks visit different rooms to provide a cooking experience on a rotating basis for our Happy Healthy Learners. The children sample their own cooking and depending on the item, they may even get to take some home. 
 

Caring Educators

Caring for children and inspiring learning early takes a special sort of person. After 25 years in the industry, we know exactly who that is.

By definition, every Sesame Lane Educator must be caring as well as qualified (or currently studying for their qualification). We pride ourselves on our rigorous selection process.

Before they begin work with us, all Sesame Lane staff must… 
  • complete an intense induction program 
  • provide proof of immunisation
  • hold a current Suitability Card
  • hold a current first aid certificate with current CPR

From our Educators, cleaners and assistants, to management and marketing, all our employees represent the quality care we provide – both on our premises and in the wider Moreton Bay community.
