We are a purpose-built service that allows for a beautiful flow of indoor and outdoor play throughout your child’s day. Our environments create calm spaces where children of all ages can actively engage in play and learning.
Our studios are designed to allow children to move throughout their environment freely and explore all that is on offer. Our team consists of suitably qualified educators who are passionate about building secure connections and relationships with each child.

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.
0-2 Years Old
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.
2-3 Years Old
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.
3-5 Years Old
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.
