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.

Mardi Johnston
Service Manager / Nominated Supervisor

Qualifications: Certificate III and Diploma in Children’s Services

At the age of 19, I developed a passion for early learning that’s gone from strength to strength in the 12 years I’ve been at Sesame Lane. After nine years at Sesame Lane Narangba 2, I was given the opportunity to take on a Manager role at Rothwell, where I’ve been since 2013.

I feel so privileged to be able to build relationships with children and their families during those crucial early years. I really enjoy being part of the families’ support network as the children are developing and reaching their milestones.

My approach is based on understanding, developing and guiding the needs of children from the time they are babies until they reach school age. At Rothwell, we encourage children to learn and extend on their experiences in order to become life-long learners.

When children are having fun and playing in an environment that interests them, this inspires their learning and creates positive education memories that last a lifetime.
In my downtime, I love music, the theatre, playing softball and of course, family time. I am the proud mum of a 16-year-old son.
