Award-winning childcare provider Sesame Lane has formed a partnership with the Dolphins as they set for their entry to the NRL competition.
Sesame Lane will be the official Childcare Partner of the Dolphins and share branding with the Dolphins’ special membership category for their youngest supporters, the Baby Flippers club.
Founded by Managing Director Hilton Misso, Sesame Lane has been providing childcare to Moreton Bay and North Brisbane families for more than 30 years.
The business operates in 14 different locations across the area and employs more than 400 educators, teachers and administration staff.
These important staff provide vital care and educational experiences for over 1300 families in the region.
Underlining their credentials, Sesame Lane just last week recognised for their excellence by being named the 2022 Business of the Year at the Moreton Bay Business and Innovation Awards.
Head of Sesame Lane Kerri Smith said the company was excited to be partnering with the Dolphins as they enter the NRL.
“Believe it or not, a rugby league team and an early learning centre have a lot in common, because the foundation of each is the people and the community,” said Smith.
“A team brings players together of different ability, physique, and social background and players learn to acknowledge and appreciate that the diversity of the team is essential for their team's success.
“Therefore, the game is a fun and practical way of teaching our children that diversity and cohesion are important to our community's success.
We are so excited to be a part of the Dolphins entry to the NRL competition and all the momentum its building, which has brought our surrounding community together as proud Dolphins supporters.
Dolphins’ chief executive Terry Reader welcomed Sesame Lane into the NRL club’s sponsorship family.
“Sesame Lane is an institution in the Moreton Bay and North Brisbane communities and exactly the type of business the Dolphins want to partner with as we make our debut in the NRL competition,” said Reader.
“The Dolphins are a family club that has been part of the local community for more than 75 years.
“As we move into the national spotlight we are excited to be partnering with a local brand like Sesame Lane, who are based close to our training venue at Redcliffe and play a vital role in our area.”
