Intentional and collaborative early learning in Burleigh.

Join us at Burleigh to give your child the best possible start to life and prepare them for their school years.

Petit ELJ Burleigh is centrally located and only minutes away from the beautiful Burleigh Heads beaches.

We offer an educational program specifically designed to engage children’s curiosity, imagination and learning through a variety of intentional play-based opportunities. The educational program is created in consultation with the children and their families to support each child’s individual development and learning.

At Petit ELJ Burleigh, we have a strong focus on sustainability and teaching children to be environmentally responsible. The children are encouraged to be responsible for taking care of our many gardens and plants throughout the Centre and tend to their native ‘tickle’ bees in our beautiful rooftop play space.

Our qualified team of educators offer an abundance of knowledge and experience to support and educate children to become capable, confident learners.

Tailored learning & curriculum for each age group.

At Petit ELJ, 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.

Kindergarten (3-5 yrs)

Preparing for the school years ahead, kindergarten children 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 Burleigh, 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.

Petit Early Learning is the perfect environment for your little ones. My youngest son attended this childcare for the past 9 months and in that time he has grown in himself so much and I have this wonderful place to thank. I’d like to personally thank Fiona for making everything so easy, no stress ever involved and Miss Katie for being a superstar teacher for my son!!
