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.
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.

Louise Sampson, Wooloowin QLD
We have been attending the centre for three years and now have our third child attending. Nat (the manager) has always been approachable and quick to address any questions I may have. My eldest are now both in school but always come back for drop offs and picks ups to see the staff and play on the facilities. Highly recommend!
Salomé Caso de los Cobos, Wooloowin QLD
Both my kids attend Petit! They are really happy, the lead educators are amazing and my 2 year old does book-based activities every day, learning new skills while playing and socialising. We are very happy with them.
Mallory Forbes, Wooloowin QLD
Great staff and a warm and friendly environment. My son has been going there for a year and he has blossomed. The director Natalie is always looking for ways to improve and involve the families to make it the best experience for our little ones!
