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.

Tamlyn Haddon, Marian QLD
My daughter has struggled adapting to daycare such is completely normal and understandable. But the staff have been incredibly supportive and helpful to both myself and my daughter throughout the transition. The staff are welcoming and friendly and you can see that they really do care.
Elizabeth Peebles, Marian QLD
For the first few weeks I really wondered if I was doing the right thing my son would just scream. But the staff are absolutely lovely and so helpful and supportive. Now my son runs off to play and can’t wait to go, including melt downs in the shop parking lot next door if we have to go shopping on a non day care day. His speech has developed so well since going and he is becoming more social and affectionate. And it gives me a break from toddler tantrums.

We have three children attending Petit, Marian. Staff are attentive towards children. We can drop the children off and know they are in good hands. Jasmine is making great progress in the kindy class. The children love day care and their teachers.
