Our parents are impressed with Petit Early Learning Journey.

Rhiannon Floey, Caloundra

The care, love, fun and educational experiences my girls have recieved at Petit ELJ Caloundra are exactly what we were after from a daycare provider. We have tried family daycare and other centres and nothing compares to Petit Caloundra. It is so nice to drop my girls off knowing they are safe and in exceptional care.

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.

Kylie D., Burdell 1 QLD

Petit Early Learning Journey is a wonderful centre, where staff members and children facilitate in a friendly, safe, creative and nurturing environment for our son. He has developed some beautiful relationships and learnt helpful and healthy habits that are enabling him to develop and thrive in his early years. As parents, we enjoy going to the centre to see what the educators and kids have been up to. With plenty of outdoor space and a child-directed approach to play and learning, our son is always happy to be there. For this we are very grateful

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.

Babies.

0-2 years

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 years

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 years

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.
