Registration Process

Registration Process

On April 17, 2024, the University of Guelph Child Care and Learning Centre transitioned to a centralized child care waitlist managed by the County of Wellington Children’s Early Years Division. Please click on this link “Wellington-Guelph Child Care Waitlist” to complete your waitlist application.

Should you have any questions please contact

Registration Priority

When an application is electronically received through the centralized waitlist, it is sorted by registration date, affiliation with the University of Guelph and the child's date of birth. Due to our relationship with the University of Guelph, applicants' affiliations are given the following priority:

1. Families with children currently enrolled at the CCLC

2. Students (degree program) of the University of Guelph

3. Faculty/Staff of the University of Guelph

4. Families with children who have previously attended the CCLC

5. Alumni of the University of Guelph

6. Community members

If your affiliation changes to "Student", your registration date will change to reflect the date we receive your University of Guelph Student ID number and the name of your degree program.

Typically, child care spaces are available at the start of July until September; when the Senior Preschool children are withdrawn from the CCLC to attend Junior Kindergarten. It is highly unlikely spaces will come available from October to July.

If you have any further questions regarding the waitlist please email
