About Our Program
Welcome to Natural Wonders Early Learning Centre! We’re excited to have you and your child be a part of our early learning family. At Natural Wonders Early Learning Centre Inc. (NWELC) every child is valued. Our program is academically rich and designed to promote your child’s growth and development.
Natural Wonders Early Learning Centre Inc. (NWELC) is a year-round program that offers early learning experiences for children ages 6 weeks through their 12th year. The daily activities and programs that are offered consist of a flexible schedule created to provide diversity and challenge for children in all age groups. The ECEs’ holistic programming consists of many areas of learning through play including, but not limited to: art, games, music, outdoor play, storytime, gross and fine motor skill development, social/emotional advancement, language, self-help, and school readiness skills. This uniquely designed and enriched play-based emergent curriculum offers a music program taught by a qualified music instructor and is one of a kind in any early learning environment.
Early Childhood Educators
Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) are hired at NWELC to provide strong play-based programs for your child. ECEs reinforce the importance of play as this is the best method of learning for your child. This concept is supported by Dr. Maria Montessori who always strongly advocated that “Play is the work of the children,” and the ECE team, managers included, stand by this quote 100%.
ECEs are well-versed in child development. They will focus on your child’s basic needs, help teach self-help skills, and to name a few, encourage sensory play, language, creativity, and musical concepts within your child. They will help your child build positive relationships, socialize with others, learn to cooperate, share and play properly with others. ECEs can help guide your child in self-regulation to learn how to handle strong emotions when issues arise. ECEs will be patient, calm, and remain persistent with your child, and sympathize with your child’s emotions and feelings. ECEs promote inclusivity and diversity. They will guide and assist you when you have questions about your child’s development and how your child’s day was at the center. ECEs will identify your child’s strengths which will help boost your child’s confidence and heighten their self-concept. ECEs are an extremely important part of the foundation of NWELC, and we’re happy that you have chosen this path of early learning for your child.
We’re looking forward to getting to know you and your child and being involved in their future. We will strive to provide a rich play-based learning environment where your child can develop to their fullest potential.

New Year’s Day
I can not imagine a better place for my children to be while we are at work. The teachers and staff work with us to do what is best for our kids. The centre is spotless and program unbeatable. We feel blessed to have our little peoples’ minds being shaped, in a large part, by Natural Wonders.
I have many positive comments about my children’s experiences at NWELC. Most importantly, I know my children are getting a high level of care to meet their physical, emotional and developmental needs. I am forever grateful for this positive experience over their formative years!
