North Lakes - Astley Parade

67 Astley Pde, North Lakes, 4509
6.30am to 6.30pm

Sesame Lane North Lakes Asley Parade is a unique 2 story Service conveniently situated along side of Supa IGA and United Medical Centres North Lakes. We are in a well situated position within the community of North Lakes and in easy distance of the new North Lakes station.

From the time our Service opened in 2013 we have become a great part of our local community and are always seeking involvement that will strengthen our presence and community relationships. We encourage all children and families to become a part of our Service and local community each and every day, by holding events and special gatherings designed to support our children’s sense of belonging and our family’s community ties.

Our Service provides learning environments that encourage and inspire learning early as the first 5 years of a child’s life are the most important to their growth and development.  Throughout each day the children have opportunities to experience a play based curriculum which parents, families and visitors are welcome to join in on and participate. Our doors are always open.

Our Children’s Cook regularly provides both group and one-on-one cooking experiences with our children which encourages involvement in their own wellbeing by preparing and trying new foods and making healthy food choices; a great habit children will carry with them as they grow.

Our qualified Teacher, Lead Educators and Educators are trained, mentored and inspired by Sesame Lane’s professional development programs.  It’s our promise that each day we will inspire all children to become Happy Healthy Learners, not just for their early years, but to develop a love of learning which will last them a lifetime.

Our Queensland Government Approved Kindergarten Program is supported by our Bachelor qualified Teacher to ensure that each child is prepared to the best of their own ability in learning the social and academic skills they’ll need when they take the leap to “big school”.


We have all the benefits of long day care with opening hours from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday. But Sesame Lane's inclusive programs are what really makes us unique!

  • Nutritionally balanced meals and snacks are cooked fresh daily in the Service kitchen using locally sourced seasonal produce.
  • Free nappy and linen service for children under 2 years which includes disposable bamboo nappies along with bedding for nap time.
  • Intensive Swimming Lessons for Kindergarten children.
  • An exclusive Japanese program delivered by Senesi Kayo, a fully qualified Japanese Teacher who introduces the concept of Japan and brings the language to life through songs, cooking, craft and other cultural activities.
  • An inclusive Yoga program for all ages. Our Educators have undertaken Yoga implementation training to embed the phisical, mental and breathing tecniques within daily practices.
  • Cooking Experiences are delivered in all classes on a rotating basis by our Children's Cook to teach children important life skills and healthy food choices.
  • Owlbert's Gardening Program was introduced in 2019 to take children from paddock to plate. Children will follow the whole home economic cycle as they plant, cultivate, harvest and cook with produce they've grown themselves. The program also includes climate and weather learning outcomes.
  • Music plays a big role in our everyday lives, engaging children with the world of rhythm and supporting gross motor skills and creativity. Our Educators use music throught the day to energise or calm.
  • Government Approved Kindergarten Program and educational programs developed through intentional teachings and children’s interests.
