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.

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.

Parents love Petit Early Learning Journey Elderslie.

Anouska Scarfe, Elderslie NSW

Our 14 month old son started with Petit three weeks ago after being with another centre since he was three months old.
The management and staff have been nothing short of amazing. They calmed anxious mum here about some significant changes that would be happening and my son has been adjusting well! The girls are very loving and understanding. They are great at making every little person feel at home and nothing is a problem.
Since starting at Petit our son has been eating better at home and becoming much more independent!
Could not recommend this daycare enough! If you are thinking of putting your children here, you should.

Kat Dallas, Elderslie NSW

Absolutely fantastic centre. The educators talk about my children with the same love & excitement as I do. The centre director is amazing. She organises such great events for the children. She really makes the school. I have been to 3 different centres and this one is by far the best.
