Child Care Centres

Work With Us

The Children’s Early Years Division is the service system manager for the overall child care and early years system in Guelph and Wellington County. The division is responsible for the allocation of federal, provincial, and municipal funds to support high-quality services for all children and families that are equitably available, accessible, and affordable.

Within our directly operated child care centres, child care educators work collaboratively as a team to provide a rich and wholesome programme that meets the needs of each individual child. Our educators have various experiences in early learning environments and are knowledgeable about child growth and development, pedagogy, and facilitating curriculum. Staff can expect to have access to ongoing professional development to foster their own personal growth and be included in a community that believes in lifelong learning and the value that every educator adds to the children’s learning environment.

We are proud to provide homemade meals and snacks prepared by qualified Cooks who have a solid understanding of health and nutrition, as well as the eating habits of young children. Casual staff opportunities are available for those individuals who cannot make a full-time commitment in a consistent position but are able to provide occasional support to the programmes. These dynamic staff teams are led by experienced centre Supervisors who have several years of experience managing and leading educators to meet the needs of the children, families, and child care community.


We asked our Child Care staff why they love working at Wellington County. Here's what they had to say.

“Relationships with colleagues and peers assist me in maintaining the quality of my programming and teaches me something new, helping me grow as an individual personally and professionally.” T.M

“Working here is amazing because I know coming in to work everyday, that my team has my back.” K.S.

“I love that we get to see the children’s progression as they master a skill in the programme, and it is amazing to know that we are supporting them to achieve their goals.” O.H.
