Petit ELJ Wooloowin is steeped in deep history as our beautiful Centre was once the Kedron Brook Bakery which was 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 children’s interests make the foundation for our learning program, as we believe that all children’s voices should be heard and valued. Our learning environments are designed to encourage the whole child while being mindful that we are supporting the individual child too. We believe in making our families 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 professional development training to encourage their growth and development. We love to celebrate not only our children strengths within our Centre but our Educators too.

The high-quality care your child deserves!

Extra-curricular activities

To complement our quality educational program and enrich your child’s early learning journey, we offer numerous incursions and excursions throughout the year. Some of which are inclusive within your daily fee. At our Wooloowin Centres, we offer Hush Little Babies Music, Little Potters and Dance-Along.

Inclusions

We love to make our families’ lives a little easier by offering all day to day necessities. All nappies, wipes, linen and food are included in your daily fees. We also provide hats and sunscreen for all children. To enhance your child’s early learning journey with us, we are also pleased to include special extra-curricular activities within your daily fee.

Meals

Have peace of mind that your child is eating fresh nutritionally sound meals as they are prepared on-site by our very own chef. Collaborating with experts in nutrition and working alongside recognised nutritional bodies within each state on our menus, all meals are made seasonally to ensure we use quality ingredients. Included each day are breakfast, morning tea, nutritious lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack.

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.

Wooloowin Kindergarten Program.

Enrol your child in a Kindergarten Program today to encourage a smooth transition and school readiness!

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.

Petit ELJ Wooloowin Kindergarten Teacher Profile

Benefits of attending a Petit ELJ Kindergarten Program

Our qualified early childhood teachers guide children through a learning journey that provides the foundation for a successful transition to school and that aligns with the EYLF that ‘all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’.

Through participation in our evidence-based pedagogy program which include elements of play-based, inquiry-based and project-based learning, children are encouraged to investigate and explore materials and ideas through play and purposeful interactions.

In attending a Petit ELJ Kindergarten, your child will:

  • Build a sense of security, trust and a confident self-identity.
  • Independence and perseverance are encouraged and nurtured.
  • Learn to show respect for diversity and their environment.
  • Build a sense of autonomy and explore ways to be healthy and safe.
  • Develop confidence and involvement in their learning journey.
  • Have the opportunity to use technology for learning and communication.
  • Explore and expand their language and engage in literacy and numeracy in personally meaningful ways.

All of which we believe will support your child in a successful transition to school and set them up for future learning success.

Extra benefits we gift to you and your child

  • Enriching and exciting incursions and excursions.
  • Assess to interactive Smartboard to enhance learning journey.

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.
