Servicing Guelph with High-Quality Childcare in a Secure Setting
Wellington Early Learning Centre Inc. is a charitable organization dedicated to providing high-quality childcare in a safe, secure environment in which we believe every child will flourish and every family will have a voice. We love working with children to help them develop their social skills in our nurturing environment.
Committed to building positive family relationships with our clients, we foster friendly, family-oriented activities and encourage learning through positive play experiences. Our programs are led by registered ECE teachers, with a focus on social skills and school-readiness. Our values include:
- Belonging and community
- Positive learning experiences
- Clear communication
Our programs are located at the Taylor Evans Public School and we have the facilities to accommodate 110 children. Children can register either full-time (five days a week) or part-time (four days a week or less) in any of our programs. The full-time child care program operates year-round with the exception of statutory holidays.
Our Before and After School Program (BASP) operates concurrent with the school year openings and closures. We accommodate with full day care for these programs on P.A. days as well as during summer, winter and March breaks.
Each program provides engaging activities that meet age appropriate learning outcomes for the different age groups and are tailored for individuals within those groups to maximize the learning opportunities in an inclusive environment.
