Supported play-based early learning in Wooloowin.

Join an Early Learning Centre that celebrates the uniqueness and strengths of every child.

Petit ELJ Wooloowin is steeped in deep history as our beautiful Centre was once the Kedron Brook Bakery, established in 1888. Over the years the building has been used for various purposes, but we are proud to now call this our home.

Our learning program is founded in children’s ideas and interests, as we believe that all children’s voices should be heard and valued. Our environments are designed to encourage engagement from all children, while being mindful that we are supporting the individual child too. We believe in making opportunities for families to feel like part of our family, which encourages and builds strong and respectful relationships that are meaningful and true. We do this by collaborating with all our families to ensure the best outcome for all children.

At Petit ELJ Wooloowin, we support our team by offering regular training to encourage their growth and development. We love to celebrate not only our children’s strengths within our Centre but our Educators too.

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.

Kindergarten (3-5 yrs)

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.

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 Wooloowin, 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.

Kaite Stewart, Wooloowin QLD

I wanted to take this opportunity to express how extremely impressed I am with the centre and the joy I get dropping my child there. They constantly go above and beyond my expectations and my experience has been amazing. My little boy was such a handful who was experiencing such a huge problem with childcare but since moving to Petit I can see a huge change. The teachers Molly and Louisa are caring and comforting and just so approachable and seem to be so engaged in what they do with the children. Lastly Jo and Yara wowza these woman are bloody legends! They have made my journey as a mother so much easier – they always makes me feel welcome and my child feel validated and loved! Well done to Petit for having a centre that is so outstanding.
