Welcome to Wellington Early Learning Centre
Children in Good Hands at Guelph's Wellington Early Learning Centre
Long-Term Solutions to Your Childcare Needs
Proudly servicing the Guelph area for over 20 years, Wellington Early Learning Centre Inc. offers quality childcare for children ages 18 months to 12 years old. We offer full-time, part-time and before- and after-school care in our preschool, extended day learning and school-age programs. Our Registered Early Childhood Educators provide learning opportunities through positive play experiences focusing on children's developmental levels.
We Follow an Emergent Learning Model
All of Wellington Early Learning Centre's programs are based on the "Early Learning for Every Child Today" (ELECT) framework developed by the Government of Ontario as part of the Best Start Program. The ELECT framework is an important building block in achieving the social, intellectual, economic, physical and emotional potential of all children. WELC follows an Emergent Learning Model, where we believe:
- Children learn best when their learning is driven by their own interests and readiness.
- Children learn through play.
- Children are individuals with different interests and personalities with varied rates and methods of learning.
- Children are active constructors of their own learning. Their skills increase as they explore and understand their environment.
- Children are naturally motivated to investigate and learn.
Subsidized Childcare & Summer & Winter Camps Available
Our organization provides subsidized childcare spaces through the County of Wellington before- and after-school programs, we also offer summer camps and March and winter break camps, which offer programming and activities for school-aged children while school is adjourned during holidays.
