Parent Testimonials

We work closely with parents and families to ensure we’re providing the best experience for each child.

Here’s what our parents say about Petit Early Learning Journey!

Can’t recommend Petit Marian highly enough. My youngest has been attending the center for 12 months and absolutely loves it, so much so we have decided to have her complete Kindy here next year. The carers are lovely and make us feel at home upon arrival. She looks forward to her daycare days and that makes me happy knowing she is content

– Kristi Chambers, Marian QLD

The staff at Petit Caloundra are all fantastic. The kids just love coming each day and even pretend being their teachers at home. All toys and equipment are brand new. Everything is set up perfectly, even overlooking the lake!

– Ashley Wilcome, Caloundra QLD

We could not be happier with Petit at Barton. The staff and facilities are second to none. The positive transformation we have seen in our daughter has been remarkable and for this reason we are glad we changed to Petit Barton.

– David Schweinsberg, Barton ACT

Awesome childcare centre. It is so much easier to head off to work knowing that we are leaving our babies in such capable hands. All of the staff are professional and love our children like they are their own. Nothing is too much trouble. Exciting healthy meals which both my fussy kids eat. Easy to contact for anything. Knowledgeable educators.

– Sarah Landry, Burdell 2, QLD

The staff at Petit go above & beyond to help the children settle in, regardless of whether they are full timers, or one day a week. They always keep me up to date on what my son has done throughout the day & care about the children beyond doubt. The education, interaction & learnings my son receives exceed my expectations & I highly recommend Petit to anyone I speak to.

– Kristen Kachel, Marian QLD

I cannot recommend PELJ enough! My daughters Educators have made a positive, yet amazing impact on my daughters social behaviour. They treat her as their own! The care, empathy, routines etc. that they practice is 100%. Thank you PELJ! 🙂

– Katie Ogilvie, Marian QLD

It is not easy leaving your baby for the first time but the carers were amazing as they provide quality one on one time with you to discuss in depth your child’s day. Not only do the team at do a fabulous job at taking care of my son they go the extra mile to provide assistance to parents with any issues or concerns you may have for example routines at home. I am very appreciated of the support we receive from the team at Petit and could not recommend the centre any more highly.

– Sarah. R, Burdell 1 QLD

I cannot rate the centre and the educators highly enough. They are always happy, friendly and very knowlegable. They are more than happy answer any queries or questions you may have (which I had being only new to daycare). The center is excellent with great activities and equipment for the children.

– Katrina, Burdell 1 QLD

From the moment Amalia and I visited Petit at Caloundra we felt at home. It is always a little daunting at the start of a daycare journey but the lovely educators and beautiful atmosphere made it very easy to feel comfortable and welcome. We are very happy at Petit Early Learning Journey.

– Cassandra Cover, Caloundra QLD

The centre is absolutely beautiful with plenty to keep my daughter happy and learning throughout the day. The educators, Emma, Helena and Yolanda are wonderful with the children, always engaging with them as if they were a part of one big family. The Centre Director, Jess, is not only an awesome leader but has always been loving, caring and closely involved with the parents and children. I believe the team at Barton Petit work really well together. My daughter took less than a couple days to settle as it didn’t take her long to feel safe and cared for. It would have been great if the centre had had capacity for babies under 15 months.

– Johanna Gonsalves, Barton ACT

The facilities at the centre are amazing! Being a brand new centre, obviously things are nice. But one thing we have said each time new toys or equipment arrive – you provide great quality equipment from the beginning! The toys are fabulous, we LOVE the wooden toys, puzzles and the great outdoor play. The room is really well set up for the age group that are enjoying it.

– Christa A, Burdell 1 QLD

Jackson has been attending Petit ELJ Caloundra since early July and he loves it, as do I. From day one, Jackson has always had a smile on his face when I drop him off for the day and it’s always an effort to get him out to the car because he never wants to leave. He adores the centre manager and his teacher Miss Nicole. He has come leaps and bounds since starting at Petit.

– Chantelle Turner, Caloundra QLD

My two boys have been to a few different centres over the years but we haven’t found one we love as much as burdell 2. The staff are fantastic and passionate! The facilities are always clean, modern and constantly updated to keep children interested. Their communication with the parents Is outstanding! I know precisely what my children are up to all day long with constant updates. Thank you to all staff for making our experience a happy one! Highly recommended 🙂

– Gemma Lingard, Burdell 2 QLD

Fantastic centre, great staff, great food. My kids love it and I feel very confident sending my children there. I would recommend to anyone.

– Marika, Burdell 1 QLD

The friendly, caring, amazing staff at Petit Marian make my son’s time at the centre fun, exciting, homely, educational, adventurous and inspiring! He absolutely adores his teachers/carers and always has lots of happy stories to tell me about his day! From day one (first day of the centre opening & also his very first day of care ever), the amazing staff have helped my little man grow and helped him become confident in his surroundings. I highly recommend Petit Marian to anyone looking for quality care for their children!

– Kate Turner, Marian QLD

It is a great comfort each day to know that we are leaving him in an organised, clean, warm, caring friendly environment. The staff are very approachable, interactive and friendly they never fail to greet you or your child when arriving or leaving even when just passing in the rooms. The structuring of rosters so there is always a familiar face at drop off is also great!

– Melanie M, Burdell 1 QLD

My family and my son who attends this service is very happy with all the workers.

– Jennifer Byrnes, Marian QLD

My kids have so much fun at Petit Marian. The playground is huge – lots of different areas for them to play in, sand pits, swings, grassed areas, construction pit, and gardens with veggies/fruit. The Educators keep them engaged with different activities each day and changing things up. The class rooms are big and inviting. With 2 boys who are big eaters, they LOVE Miss Michelle cooking. I work full time and I love being able to log onto Story Park during the day and see what they have been up to. I find that this helps me to engage better with my kids about their day.

– Reyna Pakowski, Marian QLD

Petit Early Learning Journey is a wonderful centre, where staff members and children facilitate in a friendly, safe, creative and nurturing environment for our son. He has developed some beautiful relationships and learnt helpful and healthy habits that are enabling him to develop and thrive in his early years. As parents, we enjoy going to the centre to see what the educators and kids have been up to. With plenty of outdoor space and a child-directed approach to play and learning, our son is always happy to be there. For this we are very grateful.

– Kylie D., Burdell 1 QLD

I am very happy with Petit Marian. The girls are all so lovely, the facilities are amazing and my kids just love it there.

– Monica Galea, Marian QLD

Leaving your kids in the care of others as a mother is one of the most difficult things we have to do: well at least it has been for me… However I cannot express the peace of mind I have when I drop our little girl to day care. I know that she is cared for and even to an extent loved by those who oversee her. I have witnessed her thriving since she has been at Petit, not only educationally but also socially and I can only put it down to quality of care and the teachers she has been entrusted.

– Zoe M., Burdell 1 QLD

As a first time parent, I was pretty anxious about the idea of sending my 2 year old son to day care. After extensive research, we decided to go with Petit Early Learning Journey at Northshore Hamilton. The centre is brand new, well designed, not to mention spacious and has a great security system. Most importantly, the educators are extremely caring and experienced. I still remember the first time that I picked up my son from Petit and he didn’t want to leave… Now every time I send my son to Petit, I look forward to receiving a picture journal from the educators about what activities he has done during the day. I would gladly recommend Petit Early Learning Journey at Northshore Hamilton to any of my family and friends.

– Jennie Karageozis, Hamilton QLD

My husband and I are very happy to have chosen the newly established Petit Hamilton for our children. The centre itself is custom designed, well resourced, clean and new. The educators are caring, approachable and experienced. Systems and communication with parents is consistently clear and timely. But most importantly, there is always something fun and different for the kids each day they attend! Thank you Petit.

– Lucy, Hamilton QLD

My 18mo and 2.5 year old started at Petit Early Learning Journey when it first opened. I have experience with other centres and I have loved other centres but this centre is absolutely above all else. The staff at the centre are so caring and innovative and have contributed to the development of my girls in ways that I could not have imagined. Both girls love going to day care every day and get the opportunity to participate in so many creative learning activities supported by the staff. I think anyone who visits the centre will agree that the calibre of this centre sets it above the others.

– Therese Helly, Hamilton QLD

These guys are amazing! The personal care and attention that is received at this particular centre is superb. My little girl was very new to the daycare/kindy system and after only a few days she understood how valued and cared for she was going to be. She settled in wonderfully. My very appreciating hat goes off to Kylie, the centre manager; Nicole, educator leader of Treasure Cove; and Jen, educator of Treasure Cove. To all these wonderful people, thank you!

– Jo Smith, Caloundra QLD

The care, love, fun and educational experiences my girls have recieved at Petit ELJ Caloundra are exactly what we were after from a daycare provider. We have tried family daycare and other centres and nothing compares to Petit Caloundra. It is so nice to drop my girls off knowing they are safe and in exceptional care.

– Rhiannon Floey, Caloundra

I have just visited this centre and the educators were all so helpful. The children were happily playing and it just had a nice feel. I can’t wait for my child to start.

– Lisa, Coffs Harbour NSW

We have receiving nothing by professional, friendly and personal service from the staff at Petit ELJ Burdell. My daughter adores her teacher and comes home every day with something new she’s learnt or experienced. During tough times the staff have supported my whole family and offer a family environment rather than a business environment. Shifting my daughter to this centre for her final year or pre-school learning has been without a doubt a positive move for my whole family.

– Emily B., Burdell 1 QLD

But one thing we have said each time new toys and equipment arrive – you provide great quality equipment from the beginning!

– Christa A., Burdell 1 QLD

This centre is absolutely amazing. I have 2 children in care, both in separate rooms. The staff and facilities in both rooms are incredible. I would and have already recommended this centre to anyone looking for care. 5 stars all round!

– Melinda Waters, Burdell 2 QLD

What a great centre! I highly recommend Petit Marian. Not only are the staff professional, but with their kindness and warmth, my 3 year old son has formed an amazing bond with his Educators. The facilities are great and there are endless opportunities to grow and learn. Amy and all her staff are fantastic and should be very proud of the huge effort they put in.
