There’s a new early learning model about to hit our towns, and it’s carving a niche for unique, personalised childcare.


Petit Early Learning Journey is a premium brand long day care provider that is renowned for creating safe, respectful and compassionate environments. With centres already open in Townsville, Port Douglas, Marian, Caloundra, Barton and Coffs Harbour, Petit has now extended its premium service to Murwillumbah and Brisbane with centres opening soon!


Petit Learning Centre 2Petit Early Learning Journey follows a holistic approach that encompasses a connection of mind, body and spirit, and a view that all learning is integrated and interconnected. By cultivating a child’s self-awareness of their body, feelings, thoughts and attitudes, Petit hopes to support the discovery of each child’s unique personality. By encouraging and practicing mindfulness, teachers awake a child’s motivation from within to engage their unique personal development.


Petit also embraces sustainable practices and utilises a paperless digital sign in/sign out system as well as an online child portfolio tool (QKeYLM). With your own unique access to the online family lounge,log in at anytime, anywhere to follow your child’s learning journey.


Christa Adamson, a parent at the Burdell centre absolutely loves QKeYLM, “With our work life, at times we are not able to do pick up and drop off ourselves to see [our child’s] educators. Having the online service allows us to check in on her day and the fun activities she has enjoyed – especially when we have to be away for work. It is also a great tool to sit down with our daughter and look at photos of her day so she can share her stories and happiness about the day she has had.”


To save you time and assist with those busy mornings, all meals are inclusive within the daily fee and are prepared on site by Petit’s very own chef – including morning and afternoon tea and a nutritious lunch.  Mealtimes at Petit provide an opportunity for staff to encourage the development of healthy eating practices – seasonal menus have been developed in association with EatWell Australia and aim to meet a significant amount of a child’s daily nutritional requirements. You can be assured that your children are receiving the freshest, nutritionally sound meals while at Petit! Did we mention that all nappies are included too?


Petit Learning Centre 3Petit centres offer a kindergarten program taught by Bachelor qualified staff and centre programming supports the Early Years Learning Framework. Petit is conscious of creating supportive environments and all studios are configured to the new educator-to-child ratios which as a requirement under the National Quality Framework must be in effect as of January 2016. The advantages of Petit working to the new educator-to-child ratios now means that your children are being supervised to the highest standard and educators are able to give more individual care and attention. As a result, more meaningful relationships are formed.


Enrolments are now open for Petit Early Learning Journey’s Murwillumbah and Northshore Hamilton centres.
