CCLC COVID-19 Response

The University of Guelph Child Care and Learning Centre has continued to provide online programming and supports to children and families during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal was maintaining routines and connections with children and parents, reducing household stress and isolation, providing parents with support and hopefully easing the transition back to child care once the time comes.

After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cease CCLC operations, including online programming and the Outdoor Learning Program for the summer. Our hope is to re-open for September, depending on provincial and health directives in place at that time. Our top priority is the health and safety of children, families, and our staff and the emotional well-being of children. The restrictions in place are not conducive to the kind of responsive and nurturing care that we are committed to providing at the CCLC.

We did not make this decision lightly; we know how greatly it affects our families and staff. But we sincerely believe this decision is in the best interest of everyone. We appreciate the patience and understanding of our CCLC community.

Stay well!

The CCLC Team
