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 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 Springfield we pride ourselves on our Kindergarten program. We have a strong emphasis on the journey to Prep-readiness and follow a play and inquiry-based curriculum which allows children to learn at their own pace in a variety of different ways. Our bachelor trained teachers develop their learning in line with the Queensland Kindergarten Guidelines and create real-life learning situations that explore problem-solving, investigating and experimentation, Prep-readiness skills and interest-based projects.
