Parents see their children loving Petit Early Learning Journey.
Therese Helly, Hamilton QLD
My 18mo and 2.5 year old started at Petit Early Learning Journey when it first opened. I have experience with other centres and I have loved other centres but this centre is absolutely above all else. The staff at the centre are so caring and innovative and have contributed to the development of my girls in ways that I could not have imagined. Both girls love going to day care every day and get the opportunity to participate in so many creative learning activities supported by the staff. I think anyone who visits the centre will agree that the calibre of this centre sets it above the others.
Jo Smith, Caloundra QLD
These guys are amazing! The personal care and attention that is received at this particular centre is superb. My little girl was very new to the daycare/kindy system and after only a few days she understood how valued and cared for she was going to be. She settled in wonderfully. My very appreciating hat goes off to Kylie, the centre manager; Nicole, educator leader of Treasure Cove; and Jen, educator of Treasure Cove. To all these wonderful people, thank you!
Kristi Chambers, Marian QLD
Can’t recommend Petit Marian highly enough. My youngest has been attending the center for 12 months and absolutely loves it, so much so we have decided to have her complete Kindy here next year. The carers are lovely and make us feel at home upon arrival. She looks forward to her daycare days and that makes me happy knowing she is content.
The high-quality care your child deserves.
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 programmes to ensure they meet your child’s individual needs.
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.
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.
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.
The perfect environment for your child to discover their creativity, confidence and love of learning.
Your child will be engaged in an honest, welcoming and friendly environment that is suited to their age and developmental needs. Our staff-to-child ratios ensure your child is getting the best care and attention they need and deserve.
Keeping you connected every step of the way.
To help parents keep track of their child’s day care experience, we use an online management tool called Storypark. This app allows you to discover and follow your child’s learning journey and you can also find documented stories about your child and their day.

Children love big bright, colourful things. Watch them walk into a colourful room, and their eyes will light up with wonder.
