Our Values

From our strong values and modest roots, Petit has grown to include 13 centres in Australia — soon to be 15.

Through our growth and transformation, we have remained true to our values.

It’s what keeps us focused and ensures we always — always — put your child first.

We stay true to our principles by offering:

  • A safe, respectful and compassionate environment
  • Support for each child’s social, emotional and cognitive development
  • An atmosphere that awakens the love of learning
  • A sense of wonder and uplifting of the spirit of the human imagination
  • A holistic approach including a connection of mind, body and spirit
  • Hope and wonder through an understanding and respect for the natural environment
  • A place where educators, children, families and parents work together
  • Heartfelt commitment to integrity and a deep caring for every child
  • Respect and value for individual differences and cultural diversity

These values are integrated into our high quality educational programs based on the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and play-based curriculum.

Our educator approach

Petit Early Learning Journey is a progressive, educational, inspiring long day care service focused on the holistic learning and development of children.

Children want to feel they are loved, important and unique.

At Petit our passionate educators recognise the responsibility we have in helping little minds grow and learn.

Creative thought and school readiness is inspired and encouraged by our centres programming, enthralling class environments and interactive play-scapes.

We foster learning environments that are enchanting and inviting for each child and their family.

We know that parents and families play a huge role in how well we can care for your child.

We are always open to your feedback and especially your input on how we can educate and care for your child better.
