Parents are overjoyed with their experiences at Petit Marian.
Kristi Chambers, Marian QLD
Can’t recommend Petit Marian highly enough. My youngest has been attending the center for 12 months and absolutely loves it, so much so we have decided to have her complete Kindy here next year. The carers are lovely and make us feel at home upon arrival. She looks forward to her daycare days and that makes me happy knowing she is content.
Kate Turner, Marian QLD
The friendly, caring, amazing staff at Petit Marian make my son’s time at the centre fun, exciting, homely, educational, adventurous and inspiring! He absolutely adores his teachers/carers and always has lots of happy stories to tell me about his day! From day one (first day of the centre opening & also his very first day of care ever), the amazing staff have helped my little man grow and helped him become confident in his surroundings. I highly recommend Petit Marian to anyone looking for quality care for their children!
Samantha Paterson, Marian QLD
What a great centre! I highly recommend Petit Marian. Not only are the staff professional, but with their kindness and warmth, my 3 year old son has formed an amazing bond with his Educators. The facilities are great and there are endless opportunities to grow and learn. Amy and all her staff are fantastic and should be very proud of the huge effort they put in.
The high-quality care your child deserves.
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.
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.
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.
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.
