Fantastic childcare with plenty of planned activities and learning experience throughout the day. Unsurprising that the wait times are longer than most centres, and our son is always unhappy to leave! Educators are great and really make the centre, and parents are provided with plenty of photos and stories every day to discuss with their young ones in the evening. A highly recommended childcare in Springfield Lakes!

Absolutely love Petit Springfield! I regret not sending our son there sooner and I wish that our other kids had the opportunity to attend when they were younger. Miss Shai and Miss Allison are by far the best you'll ever come across!!

We are very happy with the Springfield centre! Both of my kids have been cared for here until prep. Love the facilities and fun activities/crafts/experiments they've got on everyday. The educators show a great level of care and professionalism. Big thank you to Miss Jess, Miss Shaiane and Miss Alison for being so attentive and consistent with making morning drop-off easier as my son still gets upset till today!

My son has been attending the Treasure Cove Kindy room this year and has loved every day. The staff were welcoming, open, and caring for every request that we made. I would highly recommend the centre.

Despite being an educator at the centre, that does not make me bias to the centre as a whole. There is no one I’d trust my baby with more than the educators who work here. They go above and beyond and make me feel so at ease as a first time mum. It is a beautiful centre and I am thankful to be on both ends in regards to being both a parent and educator 🤍

Petit Early Learning Springfield are amazing. The opportunities they provide for my boys are incredible and the boys expanding their knowledge in so many different ways. From sewing, to yoga, pottery and music are just some of the amazing experience they are able to participate in which is not including all the experience prepared by the amazing educators. The educators are so welcoming and the communication is well above my expectations. Educators communicate daily with you around your child’s day and are always there to help when needed. Thank you petit Springfield for creating an amazing educational setting!!

Our first child was enrolled at Petit when it first opened and a few years later we returned with our second and third. We were pleased to see how many staff were still at the centre. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive, and our kids love them. They are honest, upfront and provide open communication. Couldn't recommend them enough.

It was hard to find a daycare that "felt" right. As soon as I walked into Petit I knew that it was where I wanted my son to attend. The experience we have had has been outstanding. The educators care about the children and you feel so much joy from the centre.

I would not hesitate to recommend Petit Early Learning Journey Springfield. I always feel so confident & safe leaving my little one with the amazing, caring & loving educators. He loves being there & always has such a great time. The centre is always immaculate & the learning experiences created for each individual child is always such a high standard. I’m so grateful to have such a beautiful centre to leave my little one each day.

Our experience at Petit Springfield has been second to none! All of the staff have been nothing short of amazing with our daughter. My daughter has severe allergies and they have been so incredibly accommodating and have gone above and beyond what any other local centre was willing to do to ensure that she is at zero risk! All of the staff know each of the kids names regardless of whether they are in their rooms or not and we are always greeted with big smiles! It's such a nice feeling being able to drop our daughter off with no tears and this is an absolute credit to Petit staff and their manner with the children as at her old centre there was not a single day where she didn't cry on drop off. I have had my kids in a few local centres over the years and Petit is by far the best!

My wife and I were initially a little reluctant to send our child to daycare, however Petit was recommended to us by a relative and I am so glad we listened. Our daughter has gone from strength to strength since she started, so much so that we quickly increased from 1 day to 4 as it was obvious how much she was learning and growing by being there. Petit truly is an educational institution and not just somewhere to drop your kids while you’re at work. The educators are fantastic, it means so much to see our daughter run off excited to see her friends and educators and get stuck in. The food options are really healthy and creative and has given us lots of ideas for meals at home. The facilities are also excellent with covered open air options, there is a great balance of keeping the kids safe but also letting them explore and learn how to interact with their environment without being wrapped in cotton wool.

I would highly recommend Petite. Both my kids go there. The educators are very polite and hardworking. Whenever I have had any issues , they have always been addressed by the educators and the management . My kids are learning so much which shows it’s not only just play time there but a lot of learning experience too. In my 4yo class every week there are planned educational activities which he looks forward to and what more I can say that he even wants to go to his daycare even on weekends 😄.

My daughter has been attending this centre for almost 2 years now and we are still so happy we made the transition from another daycare facility when we did. Since day 1, we have felt the difference in our daughters behaviour. It took her a few days to settle which is normal, but since then she never wants to leave. Every educator she has had has made us feel so connected to what our daughter is doing throughout the day. We have an app that's called Storypark and the educators write stories about the kids days and we get a very detailed story along with photos telling us what they got up to. The communication is impeccable with this centre from the staff and the Centre Director, we know everything that is going on. Whilst we can't all be perfect, if there is an issue raised they are always on top of it. The Centre Director Jessie is always finding ways to make families involved, whether it be grandparent days or special cultural days, I feel this is so important and its something we look forward to. What also amazes me is that most of the educators know all the kids by name, that's pretty impressive considering there's a lot of names and faces to remember. The menu for the children is so delicious and we even get to have some (if you're quick enough!) in the afternoons, as the chef will leave some out for us to take home. Another great thing about Petit is the low staff turnover, my daughters last centre she attended for roughly 2 months and we didn't know any of the educators because they changed ALL the time! Whereas, the educators she had when she first attended in 2018 are still there today! I wish my daughter didn't have to go to big school because we love it here so much! Jessie you are doing an incredible job and keep doing what you are doing because it shows in the staff you have! I cannot fault this centre and if you can get your child onto the waiting list, it is so worth it!!!

My children started here the day the Springfield centre opened almost 2 years ago. All of the staff are so loving and patient with my children. It takes a village to raise children and the staff here have certainly been a major part of our village assisting us to raise and educate our children in a positive, safe and fun environment. This is our third centre in the area and we are very happy here. One of our children attended a Petit centre in Canberra which was also amazing.

Our daughter has been attending Petit Early Learning Journey at Springfield Central since its opening and we can’t speak highly enough of the caring and attentive staff, excellent facilities and quality educational experience.A once very attached and extra sensitive child, we have seen our little girl become more confident and independent under the love and care of the exceptional educators in her rooms. She loves her teachers so much and they are like family to us as we know she is safe and genuinely cared for in their charge.There are many extra curricular activities on offer, plenty of themed days and special events, and the center is truly play-based and curriculum focused with every child having individual learning goals that cater to their developmental milestones, established collaboratively by both educators and parents.

Amazing centre, friendly educators and wonderful management. I have noticed such a difference in my kids development since being at petit. I love the diversity, having a male educator has been amazing for my daughter as she used to be so shy. Would highly recommend petit to anyone looking for childcare in the Springfield area.

Amazing educators and management. Everyday I walk into the centre we are welcomed with beautiful smiling faces from all the lovely educators. My kids are genuinely happy and we are constantly being kept up to date with the kids development and learning experiences. My eldest has come out of her shy bubble and blossomed into such a outgoing child. They take such good care of our children and families and we are always spoilt with parent/ grandparent morning teas and treats which is always a great way to meet other parents. Overall amazing centre! Love my Petit family!

We love Petit Springfield! We have had our son in since the centre opened and more recently our daughter has started in the nursery and we couldn't rate this centre highly enough. The staff are so kind and caring and provide amazing experiences across the individual learning environments. The facilities are great with so much room for the kids to play, explore and use their imaginations. Jessie and her assistant directors Hailey and Michelle are amazing. They go above and beyond for our kids and each time I do drop off I leave with a peace of mind that my kids are in great care. It definitely feels like a family at Petit and we are so happy we found this centre!

We have been so happy with the effort of the team to always provide a stimulating and exciting excitement for the kids. The relationships they build with our children are priceless, and our son classes 2 of his teachers as his "best friends" which makes us sure that we had made the right decision with choosing Petit.

Absolutely love Petit!! The educators and centre manager Ms Jessie have been amazing!! Both my kids attend Petit, my oldest has been there since day one of opening, and the change in her confidence has been so fantastic. She no longer cries at drop off, but runs in and most days does not want to leave.. when it was time for my second little one to start, the petit team went above and beyond to help me settle her in, from all the play dates to the one on one relationshipbuilding with her to make her feel safe and secure.. 😀

After leaving another centre, it was great to find a centre that was welcoming, supportive & understanding of my child's needs. The educators as well as admin staff are great at communicating information on a daily basis so i feel confident that my son is getting the education and care that he requires each day. Would highly recommend Petite Springfield.

The staff at petit are exceptional people. They take the time to teach the young ones at thier own pace with thier own interest. They encourage growth and show so much patience for our little futures. I'm so happy to choose this place for my little man to spend his day without me. Well done and keep up the excellent work guys.The educators in my sons room and his previous room have gone above and beyond to listen to my worried and concerns and act on what my child's needs are.There is always a friendly smile when you go into the center

Our son had the most wonderful year at Petit and really flurished under his attentive and encouraging Kindy teachers. He was encouraged to take part and get hands on with the learning activities. The focus on Prep readiness has now led to a very smooth transition into Prep, his new teacher commenting on how "confident" he is. Highly recommend the amazing team at Petit!

To see reviews on here about this centre with a poor star rating actually makes me sad and yes people are entitled to have an opinion about an experience or feeling, but this centre in my opinion should be a 5 star rating!!! ✅My son has been here since 2018 and we lasted a month at another local centre before removing him from there to place him in Petit, and it was the BEST decision made for us.He has grown in so many ways and needs structured education, caring educators, clean learning environment and a friendly atmosphere, this is all and more that Petit offer!Jessie the centre manager is lovely, and we have never had a bad experience with her, she’s prompt on replying to emails, she guides the team well and the centre is so smoothly run.Each and every educator here knows your child’s name, and who you belong too and go out of their way to assist you everyday at drop off or pick up.We barely have clothes go missing, water bottles are always kept where they should be and the hygiene is impeccable, you get a sense of this the moment you walk into the centre ✅Every day at lunch time without fail we get the storypark which is a story about their day, and you see photos of your child learning and playing!They provide little morning teas or breakfasts for parents at drop off on occasions just as a token of their appreciation to us, it’s so lovely and surprising when they do this 🥰If you are looking for a daycare, PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR and go here, you will love everyday your child is in good hands of the wonderful staff and management at Petit.

After a bad experience with a local daycare centre, I had everyone recommending Petit Early Learning at Springfield Central. After doing the tour I just knew instantly this was the place for my two boys. Our previous centre was all self led play with no structure. This centre has provided the structure that my boys are now thriving on and loving and the class sizes are smaller. The activities they do are above and beyond along with Mother and father day events, Christmas parties etc.The staff fully interact with the children and are so so nurturing. it's actually beautiful to watch at drop off's and pick up's. Since attending Petit my boys are barely sick, and the centre is always so clean. The communication each day about my children's day is fantastic and Jesse the director of Petit is such a blessing. As a local business owner you can certainly see that she has created a work culture that not only benefits the staff but our children. The chef cooks beautiful food and is always open to new ideas and options. There can be a wait for this centre due to popularity but it's so worth it ! So blessed to have my kiddies here :)

Petit is an amazing & beautiful place for my kids to spend their time away from home.The kindy program is so well set up & has the most wonderful & dedicated teachers. Miss Hailey & Miss Katie really go the extra mile to help your children grow & learn. My daughter always came home with a smile on her 😀.The toddler room with Miss Laura, I couldn’t be happier. With a son that didn’t deal well with separation, she & the girls where always there to great us & help him settle in for the day.Every afternoon at collection both my children wouldn’t be ready to leave as they were having way to much fun.Thanks for a wonderful time Jessie & the whole team 😍😊

We have been at Petit Springfield for 2 years now. I love that Jessie the Manager always has the time to talk. She listens to my concerns and acts promptly and appropriately to rectify any issues I may have. My daughter’s assistant teacher Allison welcomes my daughter early most mornings and is always happy to give her that little extra attention that she needs on an early morning drop off. Allison is also wonderful in the class room with my daughter, where the teacher lacks experience, she is very focused on my child's needs and learning experiences. Allison assists the teacher and support her in what has been programmed. Being the class room helper she knows my child almost as well as me, with her likes and dislikes. Allison is a credit to the Petit family and asset in the kindy room.I love that they promote healthy eating for the children in their meal plan and regular options for sandwiches at lunch time. My daughter is encouraged to have as much food as she would like and it seems she always goes back for seconds on these healthy options which is nice. They allow the kids to have fruit as they leave the centre each day. I think this is a wonderful initiative for a growing child and makes it easier for me when I offer fruit at home as a snack. I have been happy with this centre and would recommend it to any of my friends.

Learn More about Our Centre

Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield Central offers the warmth and comfort of a family home, perfect for families in Brisbane’s southwest suburbs of Springfield, Springfield Lakes, Spring Mountain, Augustine Heights, Brookwater and Camira.

We are conveniently in the heart of Springfield Central on Specialist Lane, opposite the Mater Private Hospital, close to St Peters Springfield and just 5 minutes from the Springfield Orion Shopping Centre and Springfield Central Train Station.

Our childcare centre fosters a love of learning in children, encouraging them to explore and discover their natural curiosity and creativity through play-based learning programs that support their healthy development. Our purpose-built outdoor space is accessible from every classroom and has plenty of room in which to run, ride and explore.

The children love playing outside with friends of different ages, or with their brothers and sisters. We also have a quiet decking space for babies to safely explore the world alongside the older children, which helps to develop their social interaction skills.

Our spacious Springfield day care and child care centre provides a nurturing and stimulating environment for children aged six weeks to six years of age, supporting them to discover the world in a safe and secure way. The centre is filled with bright, stimulating materials that encourage children to explore and engage their curiosity to discover more about the exciting world around them.

Children are supported through those important early years to explore and develop their social and emotional skills through their early learning journey by a dedicated team of university-qualified Teachers and Educators. They create learning experiences in a nurturing environment that fosters creativity and imagination in a safe environment for young age groups.

Guardian Springfield Central is open from 6.30am to 6.30pm every weekday, so each family are provided with plenty of flexibility for the hours they work and the time they choose to drop off and pick up their child. During drop-off or pick-up times, we encourage you to stay for a little while and spend some time exploring the learning environment.

Our Educators and Teachers in each age room can provide some understanding of the various play materials and education spaces throughout the Centre to help you discover some ways to continue learning at home. We encourage involving the whole family in their child’s care and education to ensure they are happy as they learn and grow.

Our family communication app, Storypark, provides you with photos and updates on your child throughout the day, offering you the opportunity to stay informed about your child’s early learning and development. We also set up different learning outcomes for the children through Storypark, which supports them in achieving developmental milestones and understanding new ideas.

For children aged three and four, we have a kindergarten program led by university-qualified Teachers that can support your child in their preparation for the step up into primary school. Our kindergarten curriculum is based on leading child development research and demonstrates our commitment to providing the best possible start to life for your child through quality child care services.

Our early childhood education program at Guardian Springfield Central is led by specialist Educational Leaders who guide teaching and learning in a flexible and research-supported way. The leading curriculum supports discovery and gives children the best start to life, as well as being aligned with the National Quality Standard.

Through our high-quality kindergarten program, children have the opportunity to learn some of the skills that are often only introduced in early primary school. We begin learning and exploring shapes, numbers and letters through fun, play-based activities.

We develop each child’s literacy and numeracy skills to help them feel confident and prepared during the challenging leap into primary school. Our high-quality program supports the needs and routines of each of our families, and we ensure each child’s cultural and family background is supported and encouraged.

We’re committed to children’s nutrition, and our on-site cook prepares each meal fresh and packed with all the nutrients that children need at their age. We encourage children to engage in food preparation and to ask questions about where their food comes from, why it’s good for them, and how they can eat it. We also encourage exploration of the cultural heritage behind different foods, helping promote diversity and inclusion from an early age.

As part of our Visible Learning Program, unique to Guardian Childcare & Education, families will be able to gain an understanding of their child’s education. Our Learning Exchange Display will provide the opportunity for our Teachers and Educators to share updates on your child’s progress. It will also be a chance for you to have direct input into your child’s learning!

Why not book a tour today and come and meet the team and have a look around our Centre today? We’d love to show you why Guardian Childcare & Education Springfield Central is the perfect learning environment for your child.

Fantastic childcare with plenty of planned activities and learning experience throughout the day. Unsurprising that the wait times are longer than most centres, and our son is always unhappy to leave! Educators are great and really make the centre, and parents are provided with plenty of photos and stories every day to discuss with their young ones in the evening. A highly recommended childcare in Springfield Lakes!

My son has been attending the Treasure Cove Kindy room this year and has loved every day. The staff were welcoming, open, and caring for every request that we made. I would highly recommend the centre.

Despite being an educator at the centre, that does not make me bias to the centre as a whole. There is no one I’d trust my baby with more than the educators who work here. They go above and beyond and make me feel so at ease as a first time mum. It is a beautiful centre and I am thankful to be on both ends in regards to being both a parent and educator 🤍

Our daughter has been with Petit almost a year now and we can highly recommend them. They got amazing caring educators and have different activities/plans to improve skills of the children.Feel very safe to leave the children there and dont have to think about them while at work.

Petit Early Learning Springfield are amazing. The opportunities they provide for my boys are incredible and the boys expanding their knowledge in so many different ways. From sewing, to yoga, pottery and music are just some of the amazing experience they are able to participate in which is not including all the experience prepared by the amazing educators. The educators are so welcoming and the communication is well above my expectations. Educators communicate daily with you around your child’s day and are always there to help when needed. Thank you petit Springfield for creating an amazing educational setting!!

Our first child was enrolled at Petit when it first opened and a few years later we returned with our second and third. We were pleased to see how many staff were still at the centre. The staff are knowledgeable and attentive, and our kids love them. They are honest, upfront and provide open communication. Couldn't recommend them enough.

It was hard to find a daycare that "felt" right. As soon as I walked into Petit I knew that it was where I wanted my son to attend. The experience we have had has been outstanding. The educators care about the children and you feel so much joy from the centre.

I would not hesitate to recommend Petit Early Learning Journey Springfield. I always feel so confident & safe leaving my little one with the amazing, caring & loving educators. He loves being there & always has such a great time. The centre is always immaculate & the learning experiences created for each individual child is always such a high standard. I’m so grateful to have such a beautiful centre to leave my little one each day.

Our experience at Petit Springfield has been second to none! All of the staff have been nothing short of amazing with our daughter. My daughter has severe allergies and they have been so incredibly accommodating and have gone above and beyond what any other local centre was willing to do to ensure that she is at zero risk! All of the staff know each of the kids names regardless of whether they are in their rooms or not and we are always greeted with big smiles! It's such a nice feeling being able to drop our daughter off with no tears and this is an absolute credit to Petit staff and their manner with the children as at her old centre there was not a single day where she didn't cry on drop off. I have had my kids in a few local centres over the years and Petit is by far the best!

My wife and I were initially a little reluctant to send our child to daycare, however Petit was recommended to us by a relative and I am so glad we listened. Our daughter has gone from strength to strength since she started, so much so that we quickly increased from 1 day to 4 as it was obvious how much she was learning and growing by being there. Petit truly is an educational institution and not just somewhere to drop your kids while you’re at work. The educators are fantastic, it means so much to see our daughter run off excited to see her friends and educators and get stuck in. The food options are really healthy and creative and has given us lots of ideas for meals at home. The facilities are also excellent with covered open air options, there is a great balance of keeping the kids safe but also letting them explore and learn how to interact with their environment without being wrapped in cotton wool.

I would highly recommend Petite. Both my kids go there. The educators are very polite and hardworking. Whenever I have had any issues , they have always been addressed by the educators and the management . My kids are learning so much which shows it’s not only just play time there but a lot of learning experience too. In my 4yo class every week there are planned educational activities which he looks forward to and what more I can say that he even wants to go to his daycare even on weekends 😄.

My daughter has been attending this centre for almost 2 years now and we are still so happy we made the transition from another daycare facility when we did. Since day 1, we have felt the difference in our daughters behaviour. It took her a few days to settle which is normal, but since then she never wants to leave. Every educator she has had has made us feel so connected to what our daughter is doing throughout the day. We have an app that's called Storypark and the educators write stories about the kids days and we get a very detailed story along with photos telling us what they got up to. The communication is impeccable with this centre from the staff and the Centre Director, we know everything that is going on. Whilst we can't all be perfect, if there is an issue raised they are always on top of it. The Centre Director Jessie is always finding ways to make families involved, whether it be grandparent days or special cultural days, I feel this is so important and its something we look forward to. What also amazes me is that most of the educators know all the kids by name, that's pretty impressive considering there's a lot of names and faces to remember. The menu for the children is so delicious and we even get to have some (if you're quick enough!) in the afternoons, as the chef will leave some out for us to take home. Another great thing about Petit is the low staff turnover, my daughters last centre she attended for roughly 2 months and we didn't know any of the educators because they changed ALL the time! Whereas, the educators she had when she first attended in 2018 are still there today! I wish my daughter didn't have to go to big school because we love it here so much! Jessie you are doing an incredible job and keep doing what you are doing because it shows in the staff you have! I cannot fault this centre and if you can get your child onto the waiting list, it is so worth it!!!

My children started here the day the Springfield centre opened almost 2 years ago. All of the staff are so loving and patient with my children. It takes a village to raise children and the staff here have certainly been a major part of our village assisting us to raise and educate our children in a positive, safe and fun environment. This is our third centre in the area and we are very happy here. One of our children attended a Petit centre in Canberra which was also amazing.

Our daughter has been attending Petit Early Learning Journey at Springfield Central since its opening and we can’t speak highly enough of the caring and attentive staff, excellent facilities and quality educational experience.A once very attached and extra sensitive child, we have seen our little girl become more confident and independent under the love and care of the exceptional educators in her rooms. She loves her teachers so much and they are like family to us as we know she is safe and genuinely cared for in their charge.There are many extra curricular activities on offer, plenty of themed days and special events, and the center is truly play-based and curriculum focused with every child having individual learning goals that cater to their developmental milestones, established collaboratively by both educators and parents.

Amazing centre, friendly educators and wonderful management. I have noticed such a difference in my kids development since being at petit. I love the diversity, having a male educator has been amazing for my daughter as she used to be so shy. Would highly recommend petit to anyone looking for childcare in the Springfield area.

Amazing educators and management. Everyday I walk into the centre we are welcomed with beautiful smiling faces from all the lovely educators. My kids are genuinely happy and we are constantly being kept up to date with the kids development and learning experiences. My eldest has come out of her shy bubble and blossomed into such a outgoing child. They take such good care of our children and families and we are always spoilt with parent/ grandparent morning teas and treats which is always a great way to meet other parents. Overall amazing centre! Love my Petit family!

We love Petit Springfield! We have had our son in since the centre opened and more recently our daughter has started in the nursery and we couldn't rate this centre highly enough. The staff are so kind and caring and provide amazing experiences across the individual learning environments. The facilities are great with so much room for the kids to play, explore and use their imaginations. Jessie and her assistant directors Hailey and Michelle are amazing. They go above and beyond for our kids and each time I do drop off I leave with a peace of mind that my kids are in great care. It definitely feels like a family at Petit and we are so happy we found this centre!

We have been so happy with the effort of the team to always provide a stimulating and exciting excitement for the kids. The relationships they build with our children are priceless, and our son classes 2 of his teachers as his "best friends" which makes us sure that we had made the right decision with choosing Petit.

Absolutely love Petit!! The educators and centre manager Ms Jessie have been amazing!! Both my kids attend Petit, my oldest has been there since day one of opening, and the change in her confidence has been so fantastic. She no longer cries at drop off, but runs in and most days does not want to leave.. when it was time for my second little one to start, the petit team went above and beyond to help me settle her in, from all the play dates to the one on one relationshipbuilding with her to make her feel safe and secure.. 😀

After leaving another centre, it was great to find a centre that was welcoming, supportive & understanding of my child's needs. The educators as well as admin staff are great at communicating information on a daily basis so i feel confident that my son is getting the education and care that he requires each day. Would highly recommend Petite Springfield.

They encourage growth and show so much patience for our little futures. I'm so happy to choose this place for my little man to spend his day without me. Well done and keep up the excellent work guys.The educators in my sons room and his previous room have gone above and beyond to listen to my worried and concerns and act on what my child's needs are.There is always a friendly smile when you go into the center

Our son had the most wonderful year at Petit and really flurished under his attentive and encouraging Kindy teachers. He was encouraged to take part and get hands on with the learning activities. The focus on Prep readiness has now led to a very smooth transition into Prep, his new teacher commenting on how "confident" he is. Highly recommend the amazing team at Petit!

To see reviews on here about this centre with a poor star rating actually makes me sad and yes people are entitled to have an opinion about an experience or feeling, but this centre in my opinion should be a 5 star rating!!! ✅My son has been here since 2018 and we lasted a month at another local centre before removing him from there to place him in Petit, and it was the BEST decision made for us.He has grown in so many ways and needs structured education, caring educators, clean learning environment and a friendly atmosphere, this is all and more that Petit offer!Jessie the centre manager is lovely, and we have never had a bad experience with her, she’s prompt on replying to emails, she guides the team well and the centre is so smoothly run.Each and every educator here knows your child’s name, and who you belong too and go out of their way to assist you everyday at drop off or pick up.We barely have clothes go missing, water bottles are always kept where they should be and the hygiene is impeccable, you get a sense of this the moment you walk into the centre ✅Every day at lunch time without fail we get the storypark which is a story about their day, and you see photos of your child learning and playing!They provide little morning teas or breakfasts for parents at drop off on occasions just as a token of their appreciation to us, it’s so lovely and surprising when they do this 🥰If you are looking for a daycare, PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR and go here, you will love everyday your child is in good hands of the wonderful staff and management at Petit.

After a bad experience with a local daycare centre, I had everyone recommending Petit Early Learning at Springfield Central. After doing the tour I just knew instantly this was the place for my two boys. Our previous centre was all self led play with no structure. This centre has provided the structure that my boys are now thriving on and loving and the class sizes are smaller. The activities they do are above and beyond along with Mother and father day events, Christmas parties etc.The staff fully interact with the children and are so so nurturing. it's actually beautiful to watch at drop off's and pick up's. Since attending Petit my boys are barely sick, and the centre is always so clean. The communication each day about my children's day is fantastic and Jesse the director of Petit is such a blessing. As a local business owner you can certainly see that she has created a work culture that not only benefits the staff but our children. The chef cooks beautiful food and is always open to new ideas and options. There can be a wait for this centre due to popularity but it's so worth it ! So blessed to have my kiddies here :)

Petit is an amazing & beautiful place for my kids to spend their time away from home.The kindy program is so well set up & has the most wonderful & dedicated teachers. Miss Hailey & Miss Katie really go the extra mile to help your children grow & learn. My daughter always came home with a smile on her 😀.The toddler room with Miss Laura, I couldn’t be happier. With a son that didn’t deal well with separation, she & the girls where always there to great us & help him settle in for the day.Every afternoon at collection both my children wouldn’t be ready to leave as they were having way to much fun.Thanks for a wonderful time Jessie & the whole team 😍😊

We have been at Petit Springfield for 2 years now. I love that Jessie the Manager always has the time to talk. She listens to my concerns and acts promptly and appropriately to rectify any issues I may have. My daughter’s assistant teacher Allison welcomes my daughter early most mornings and is always happy to give her that little extra attention that she needs on an early morning drop off. Allison is also wonderful in the class room with my daughter, where the teacher lacks experience, she is very focused on my child's needs and learning experiences. Allison assists the teacher and support her in what has been programmed. Being the class room helper she knows my child almost as well as me, with her likes and dislikes. Allison is a credit to the Petit family and asset in the kindy room.I love that they promote healthy eating for the children in their meal plan and regular options for sandwiches at lunch time. My daughter is encouraged to have as much food as she would like and it seems she always goes back for seconds on these healthy options which is nice. They allow the kids to have fruit as they leave the centre each day. I think this is a wonderful initiative for a growing child and makes it easier for me when I offer fruit at home as a snack. I have been happy with this centre and would recommend it to any of my friends.
