Inspiring and supportive Early Learning in Clifton Hill

Join an Early Learning Centre, which offers a holistic learning environment with highly trained and passionate educators.

At Petit ELJ Clifton Hill, our core values such as integrity, humility and enthusiasm can be seen in the day-to-day operations of our centre. Our vibrant, inclusive and welcoming learning environments promote exploration, play and learning possibilities which allow our children to be active learners, curious about their environment and the people around them.

We believe in drawing inspiration and guidance from our children’s voices, interests, and contributions to inform our curriculum planning. Our program is designed to inspire creativity and imagination. At Petit ELJ Clifton Hill, we believe that parents are the children’s most influential teachers, and by partnering with our families, we encourage children’s learning to be a continuing journey from home to the centre.

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.

Clifton Hill Kindergarten Program

Enrol your child in a Kindergarten Program today to encourage a smooth transition and school readiness!

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 Clifton Hill, 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.
