University of Guelph Child Care and Learning Centre

The University of Guelph Child Care and Learning Centre (CCLC) is located on campus at the corner of East Ring Road and Arboretum Road. The CCLC operates within the Division of Student Affairs in collaboration with the Department of Family Relations and Applied Nutrition, within the College of Social and Applied Human Sciences. The CCLC has three primary goals:

  • to provide family-sensitive, family-centred programs for children while their parents work or study

  • to provide a resource for the academic community in which observation of children, research and practical experiences can take place

  • to demonstrate excellence in child care, education and student training

The CCLC offers 111 child care spaces for 25 toddlers, 64 preschoolers and 22 kindergarteners. Care is available for children from 18 months to 5 or 6 years of age on a full or part-time basis, Mondays through Fridays from 07:30 to 17:30. Parents may get involved in several ways, including membership on the Parent Advisory Council, attending parent information meetings, observing their children at play by using the specially designed observation facilities, or by visiting their child at any point during the day. Spaces are open to faculty, staff and students of the University of Guelph and to the Guelph community. Subsidy is available for families that qualify for financial assistance.
