Directly Operated Child Care Programmes

The County of Wellington is a licensed service provider for three child care programmes in the Wellington and Guelph area.

About our programmes

County of Wellington Child Care Centres strive to provide nurturing and inclusive environments that are attuned to the interests of children - what they know and what they wonder about. It is through these environments, as well as play and inquiry experiences, that all children, who we view as competent, capable and creative; can develop their unique disposition, resilience, and skills for life-long learning.

Our programmes work with Inclusion Supports Services, a team of child care staff and community service agencies that work with families to ensure all children, including those children with disabilities and special needs can fully participate in child care.
