Sesame Lane Redcliffe was our pioneer child care Service, located in the heart of Redcliffe. We opened in 1988 and on the first day of care we welcomed 8 children and 3 Educators! We now cater for 90 Happy Healthy Learners each day. 


In May of 1991 the Service was expanded to include a specialised crèche in a separate building and our families enjoy that our Service has dedicated age appropriate inside and outside spaces for both younger and older children.

Our outdoor playgrounds were refurbished in 2017 to extend on children's enjoyment and learning experiences and to provide a more natural setting for children to explore. Our indoor environments are designed to support both group and individual learning experiences with furnishings and equipment chosen carefully to create a home-like feeling of welcome. 

We pride ourselves on basing our leaning experiences and activities on our children's current interests and in partnership with families and our community.

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.
  • Before and After School Care with free pick up and drop off to local schools. We also provide Vacation Care during school holidays.

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 will always be greeted with a warm welcome and the passion that our Educators and myself for the welfare of your children. Our rooms are always buzzing with engaging activities promoting learning, and keeping in touch with families and getting to know each child’s interests to help scaffold their learning journey.

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.

I look forward to meeting new families and welcoming them to the Sesame Lane Redcliffe community, where children’s wellbeing is foremost in all we do.
