Equip your child with the love of learning.

Petit Early Learning Journey is one of the leading long daycare providers that offers a holistic early learning journey for children aged 0-5 years old.

At Petit, your child will develop into a happy and healthy individual, with a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Tailored learning & curriculum for each age group.

At Petit, we tailor an early learning curriculum for each age group and constantly reflect and evaluate our programs to ensure they met your child’s individual needs.

Babies (0-2 yrs)

Through a gentle, supportive approach, we help your baby develop in key areas from the very beginning. Above all, we provide a safe, warm environment for your baby to build confidence and feel secure and loved.

Toddlers (2-3 yrs)

Bursting with energy and curiosity, we welcome toddlers with love, creativity and patience. As 2 and 3 year-olds become more active and involved in their daily activities, we give them freedom and space to flourish.

Pre-school (3-5 yrs)

Preparing for the school years ahead, pre-schoolers learn and grow immensely from ages 3-5. Through structured and play-based learning, we let your child explore and learn in the way that’s best for them.

Hundreds of parents trust Petit Early Learning Journey.

Petit’s first Centre was opened late 2014. Due to our unique early learning approach and high demand from parents, we were able to open another 18 centres since then, with more to come.
