The specially designed ergonomic space both indoor and outdoor is for the exclusive use of school age children, where they are encouraged to engage in a range of activities from sports to arts and crafts, technology, cooking, researching and investigating their world and caring for our environment just to name a few.

During school holidays, we offer a range of daily activities and excursions including trips to Aussie World, ice skating, tenpin bowling, movies and more.

School Zone’s program is linked to the Sesame Lane philosophy, ideology, vision, purpose, promise and values. We  inspire learning early to help create Happy Healthy Learners. The curriculum is based around the National Quality Framework which includes; My Time Our Place, the Practices, Principles and the 5 Outcomes for children and the National Standards 7 quality areas. Our unique and inclusive programs for OSHC and Vacation Care are appropriate for a range of ages demonstrating inclusiveness and diversity.

Coordinator / Nominated Supervisor

Meet Kelly our School Zone Coordinator

Qualifications: Certificate III in Children’s Services and Diploma of Children’s Services

My education journey began when I was a high school student volunteering at Sesame Lane Redcliffe, trying to figure out whether it was the right career path for me. It wasn’t long before I knew it was the right fit. I have been with our dedicated School Zone since 2006, working my way up from assistant to group leader to coordinator/Manager.

At School Zone, I watch proudly as the children mature, become more independent and grow in confidence. What I love best about this age group is that magic moments happen every day. Children of all ages bring with them a wild imagination and a brutal honesty that I admire.

As someone who specialises in the Outside School Hours Care stream, I believe children should be given choices, responsibilities and opportunities to initiate their own learning. This gives older children a sense of belonging and ownership over their environment.

We provide a welcoming Service full of positive energy, where school-based learning is crystallised and personal growth is encouraged. I believe in scaffolding children’s education… School Zone is a place where they can develop self-help skills and practise decision-making.

School Zone parents are a very important part of the process, and I welcome their input into the Service and program. I feel it’s important that strong bonds are formed with families to instil a sense of community.

I grew up on our beautiful peninsula, where I still live with my husband, Roy, and our two daughters. On the weekends, I’m a keen 4x4 driver, but not much of a cook – although I am always up for a laugh!
