Nurturing Early Learning in Pimpama

Join us at Pimpama for a high-quality, holistic Early Learning Centre and equip your child with the love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Petit ELJ Pimpama offers a child-led learning environment that encourages creativity and exploration. Our studio settings are enhanced with natural décor and resources to provide opportunities for children to play and learn.

We are a team of qualified educators who are passionate about children’s learning and development. We believe each child learns in their unique way and offer them the opportunity to be in control of their own learning and sense of wonder. We strive to build strong relationships with not only the children but also our families and the local community.

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.

There is a strong focus on children’s social and emotional development to ensure that each child has the skills to become active and confident learners as they move onto school.

Here at Petit ELJ Pimpama, we run a play-based program that stems from the children’s interests, strengths and needs.

We have a keen interest in the importance of families in the children’s kindergarten experience, and we work to nurture the link between home and kindergarten with all the families we meet. We are excited to share with you the learning of your child, and we look forward to the shared experiences of play and fun that we have in each session.

Natasha Martin, Pimpama QLD

As a mum of 6, I have been through my fair share of childcare centers. Petit ELJ Pimpama has been hands down the BEST centre I have ever been with. Amazing staff & facilities. A very warm & welcoming environment. I always felt happy & comfortable leaving my little guy in their hands & he was always happy too. I personally liked the minimal staff changes throughout the year, which I feel gives the kids a sense of stability. The staff were always very good at engaging the parents at drop off. I highly recommend the centre ~ and it will surely be missed by us. Thank you to the staff for everything over the years. All the best.

Tammy-Lee Short, Pimpama QLD

I am so excited to write this review. My son started at Petit Early Learning Journey Pimpama 1 month after they opened in September 2017. He was just over 2 ½ years old at the time. Since then he has progressed through Haven, Darling Drive and is now in Kindergarten in Treasure Cove. Through out that time he as thrived. Initially he attended 2 days a week and is now attending 4 days. He has learnt how to be sociable and made many friends and with the teaching curriculum he had developed skills which will enable him to move forward and succeed into big school in 2020.
