Rothwell

2 Linthaven Drive, Rothwell QLD 4022
6.30am to 6.30pm

All aboard to Sesame Lane Rothwell! A free courtesy bus within a 5km radius is just one of the ways this Service goes above and beyond to help their families. Come say hello to the range of animals at the Service or visit the dining area where children have progressive morning teas together.

The Sesame Lane Rothwell children love the outdoor playground with mud pit, sand pit and climbing fort as well as the vegetable garden. The children are involved with watering, weeding and picking vegetables and herbs for the Service meals which are all cooked on site.

Sesame Lane Rothwell opened its doors in January 1994 and is just one of the 14 Sesame Lane Services in the Moreton Bay region.

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.

Thank you Natalie Geddes for your kind words:

"Your staff from 2010 to present, have been amazing and have gone over and beyond their job description. 25th January is Xander's last full day before he now takes his next step in life and walking down the next chapter in his educational path. Every step leading up to this; we have to thank Sesame Lane Rothwell for helping us reach this point. Yes we will be continuing with the centre as Kaylee and Xander will be in after school program.

From the Geddes/Jamesion Family, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a part of our family for almost 9yrs."

Meet Lisa our Service Manager
Qualifications:
Diploma in Children’s Services

In my 33 years as an early learning educator, I’ve worked in every role and with every age group – including time spent as a special needs carer for kindergarten students.

Since joining Sesame Lane five years ago, I’ve worked to create an environment for children that encourages them to develop their capacities at their own pace and provides ongoing support for families.

From what I’ve observed over the decades, children should be given opportunities to investigate, explore, discover, practise, try, fail and succeed. It’s also very important for them to simply observe, imagine, dream, pretend, share, listen and participate in everyday activities. This allows them to develop a sense of who they are and an understanding of the world they live in.

Even though I have been working with children for a number of years I still feel inspired each day. I can make a difference in children’s lives through care and education, and form supportive relationships with families. That’s what it’s all about.
