As a parent, there's no greater joy than watching your child grow and develop.

But it's important to remember babies and toddlers require specialised care to reach their full potential.

From the moment they enter the world, little ones need lots of love, attention and understanding to feel safe and secure in the environment around them.

It’s also essential that parents take note of the different stages of development during this period so appropriate care can be provided.

Knowing how best to look after your children is crucial - not only for overall wellbeing but also assisting with physical growth, socialisation skills and mental development as they transition from infancy into childhood.

Supporting families

Having cared for babies and toddlers for 35 years, no-one knows how to nurture their needs more than Sesame Lane Care & Kindergarten.

Their commitment goes beyond caring for babies and toddlers.

They are dedicated to supporting, empowering, and providing resources to entire families, ensuring parents have the knowledge and support they need, whenever they need it.

Sesame Lane’s university-qualified, dedicated educators provide exceptional care and development opportunities for infants and toddlers, tailored to each child's needs.

Understanding that families need support, they offer complimentary 'stay and play' sessions to ensure everyone feels comfortable and confident.

During these visits, infants and families spend a few hours at their service, getting to know the educators and becoming familiar with routines like sleeping and feeding.

Sesame Lane prioritises the safety and well-being of every child, and staff are trained in safe sleeping practices.

Nutrition a priority

Good nutrition is essential for your baby’s growth and development.

Providing proper nutrition can help little ones reach their milestones and lays the foundation for a healthy lifestyle from an early age.

The earlier you start focusing on introducing healthy foods and taking steps to nourish each meal, the more success you’ll have as they continue growing through toddlerhood and beyond.

Sesame Lane has balanced meal plans to support every stage of food introduction and weaning, from puréed meals to finger foods, and works with families to meet each child’s nutritional needs with fresh, seasonal produce.

Starting the enrolment process can be overwhelming for families, but Sesame Lane educators are here to make it as smooth as possible.

They work with families to understand individual needs, including sleep and feeding routines. Communication is key, so they connect with families daily and share updates and photos through a dedicated digital platform.

Encouraging curiosity

When it comes to toddlers, Sesame Lane encourages independence, empowering children to do things for themselves while offering support and guidance.

They know that hearing the word 'no' is a sign of growth and independence in a toddler, and celebrate their desire to take on tasks themselves.

They foster a sense of curiosity and exploration, encouraging toddlers to learn and discover at their own pace.

Navigating the world of raising infants and toddlers can be tough.

It's normal to feel overwhelmed at times, but with Sesame Lane’s dedicated educators by your side, you'll find comfort and support every step of the way.

Sesame Lane creates a stable and nurturing environment for little ones, providing them with the consistency of care they need to thrive.

Sesame Lane understands the importance of creating a warm and welcoming environment for families.

They strive to be a second home and a supportive community, particularly for those who are new to the area and may not have extended family nearby.

Crucial development

In today's fast-paced world, parents need a network of support and reassurance to help navigate the challenges and provide the care you and your family deserve.

Their services are not just inviting for families, but also a place where educators feel comfortable and confident in their skills.

They believe that early learning is crucial for a child's development, and Sesame Lane is dedicated to building a strong foundation for future learning.

Join their warm and caring community at Sesame Lane Care and Kindergarten.

Extra Support

To further enhance our educators' skills, Sesame Lane collaborates with specialist Sharon Armstrong from Embrace Life.

Sharon is a child health nurse and lactation consultant and mentors Sesame Lane educators within the Nursery and Toddler rooms.

This partnership supports a high level of care for infants and toddlers.

In their commitment to support parents, Embrace Life gives new Sesame Lane families with a child aged two years and under a complimentary one-hour consultation with Sharon at Embrace Life North Lakes to support new family's transition into care at Sesame Lane.
