Inspired and child-led early learning in Burdell.

Join us at Burdell for an inclusive Early Learning Centre that puts your child’s interests and learning style first.

Petit ELJ Burdell consists of two amazing Centres located right next to each other, creating one big family.

Our mission at Burdell is to provide children with an environment where they can build lifelong friendships and a love of learning. Our Centres take pride in being able to offer a culturally inclusive environment which strengthens our connectedness to our families and the wider community.

Our team of educators welcome all families into our centres and build a collaborative relationship that enhances each child’s learning journey.

At Petit ELJ Burdell, we provide a well-resourced environment for our educators to be able to facilitate and extend each child’s interests prompting their exploration of life.

We believe in letting children take the lead in their learning and live by the motto of “if a child can’t learn the way we teach, then maybe we should teach the way they learn”.

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.

Preschool (3-5 yrs)

Preparing for the school years ahead, preschoolers 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.

There is a strong focus on children’s social and emotional development to ensure that each child has the skills to become active and confident learners as they move onto school.

Here at Petit ELJ Burdell, we run a play-based program that stems from the children’s interests, strengths and needs.

We have a keen interest in the importance of families in the children’s kindergarten experience, and we work to nurture the link between home and kindergarten with all the families we meet. We are excited to share with you the learning of your child, and we look forward to the shared experiences of play and fun that we have in each session.

Jennifer Atthow, Burdell QLD

We’ve absolutely loved Petit. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. Hudson loved his teachers and interacting with the other kids and he’s learnt so much while attending. We’re very sad to be leaving.

Tegan Louise, Burdell QLD

Best centre ever! I have recently moved into town and I have very high expectations, decent size rooms, awesome play area and the best care provided to your little one and bonus food and nappies provided. No centre I have looked at is near what I had with Petit.
