Thank you Leighton Sauni for sending us this lovely message:

"I have only just had a chance to comment on this although it was weeks go. Lorina, we really appreciate how accommodating you and Tracy have been with Louis being able to 'settle' in areas which are not typical for the centre but to certainly cater to him individually. I am absolutely sure you all have to make adjustments and allowances every now and again for every little person, but it really does make a world of difference for parents. We all think our children are special, so knowing you guys have a curriculum to follow, but don't use a 'one size fits all' approach reminds us we have our children in the RIGHT place. Thanks Ms Tara for jumping on the other end of the phone too! It's the little things....."‚Äč

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.

Thank you Paras & Radhika Reddy for this lovely email:

"To all the staff at Sesame Lane North Lakes - McLennan Court. Prashanth has had a wonderful two and a half years with you all and will be moving to Prep next year. We would like to thank each and every one for the care you have provided. He has come such a long way since he started here. Most importantly he is so independent and is eating well.

Thank you for transforming him into a happy little boy!"

Service Manager / Nominated Supervisor

Meet Tracy our Service Manager

Qualifications: Diploma in Children’s Services

My journey as an Educator began in 2001. I worked as a Lead Educator for nine years before my family moved to North Queensland for a time, where I was a family day care coordinator. In 2012 we moved back to Brisbane, where I became Assistant Director and then Centre Manager for Sesame Lane

What I love best is working with the families and watching children develop and reach their milestones. Being part of a young child’s life is very rewarding, as is having a positive impact on a family and their children. The relationships you build make you all one big family.

From the moment you walk through the door of our Service, you can see that it’s very open with lots of natural light. Creating a welcoming environment that’s buzzing with engaging activities promotes learning, and keeping in touch with families and getting to know each child’s interests helps scaffold learning. Both instill a sense of belonging, being and becoming.

We engage all parties in the learning journey of the children through an open-door policy where parent involvement is encouraged. I come in each day with a very happy persona, and this filters down to the Educators and the children.

For the past 15 years, I’ve lived in the local area and often see our children at the shopping centres, parks and sporting events. In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, going camping and the great outdoors in general. My daughter and I have recently developed an interest in craft
