Sesame Lane North Lakes - Discovery Drive is situated in a residential area next to Woodside Community Centre and the Axis church on the corner of Gardenia Parade. Our busy Service is surrounded by large bushy trees, and we back onto the Woodside Playing fields, where we often hold events such as our annual Family Christmas Carols. Here at North Lakes - Discovery Drive, we have all the benefits of long day care with opening hours from 6.30am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Meet Elyse our Service Manager

Qualifications: Diploma in Children’s Services

My philosophy is that children always learn much more under the guidance of a passionate Educator. We help mould children into who they will be later in life through the exploration different areas such as imagination, role-playing and problem-solving.

Learning through play underpins my teaching style. I believe this approach is a win-win – allowing our happy healthy learners to internalise valuable life skills at the me as they build strong relationships with their peers. It’s always an amazing feeling knowing you’ve been a big part of a child’s early learning life.”

What I love most about my work are the bonds we form. Children I Educated 10 years ago still run up to me on the street. It’s something I’ll always cherish.
