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, kindergarten children 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.

Our parents are impressed with Petit Early Learning Journey.
Katrina Somerville, Kew VIC
Our daughter has been at Petit for eight months, spending most of this time in the babies room. I can’t speak highly enough of the centre, but in particular the educators in the babies room. Vittoria, Jacquie and the whole team are so gentle and kind, I couldn’t think of better carers to look after our baby. I didn’t truly appreciate the enormity of leaving our daughter at day care until we sent her to Petit, but we were very quickly put at ease with the kindness and beautiful nature of the team. I knew she was in great hands at drop off when she would give Vittoria a big, happy smile. It’s very comforting knowing she’s in such great care.

I cannot speak highly enough of Kew Petit Early Learning Centre. I send my two children to this centre, and I am so happy with the care they receive. The centre director Agnes is very welcoming, makes you feel like you’re a part of the Petit family, and takes a genuine interest in the children. Selina is great too! It is evident the centre is well managed, as the staff members are always smiling and appear happy and calm. In addition, the quality of food is excellent (thanks Terrence).
Ellie, Eloise, and the team in Burrows Lane are amazing and go over and above to support the children. They are so caring, positive, energetic, and enthusiastic. Ellie, the lead educator of this room, is an excellent leader and is a very knowledgeable educator. Ellie provides the children a wealth of learning experiences, giving them with the best start to their education journeys. No challenge is too much for Ellie, and she is always willing to go out of her way to support my son. Similarly, Eloise is excellent at her job, genuinely cares about the children, and is always willing to provide a summary of my child’s day. Ellie and Eloise are both assets to the Centre! My son has made fantastic gains and always comes home happy.
Vittoria, Jacqueline, and the team in Baby Boulevard are also amazing. They are calm, caring, professional and patient and are perfectly suited to a baby room. They show a genuine interest in each child and their communication is impeccable. The gains my young son has made during his time in this room are fantastic and it is so heart-warming to see him achieving new skills. Thank you so much for all the great work you do!
