Infants are cared for and nurtured by our professional staff in their own private and personal environment filled with color and stimulation to meet the needs of their development. Our classroom allows infants to explore through movement, touch, and sounds. We encourage and support each infant’s personal developmental achievement. A state of the art computer technology allows the staff to keep an individual journal on each child’s progress and daily activities. Every parent receives a daily print out about their child’s day.
Thank you ladies so very much for taking such amazing care of our crazy little Dilly! From day one of our short stay here at Wellington you have treated him as you would your own and that makes this momma feel so reassured when I am at work and can’t be with him. Thank you, also for treating my older son, Ryan just the same when we would come in and get him. We have always felt so welcome. I hope we will see you all again in the future. It takes a big heart to teach and love children and you all represent that to the fullest!
Thank you again!! – Kelly and Matt

School Age (Clermont)
During the school year we offer before and after care for local elementary school students. The children come to our facility in the morning and enjoy breakfast before hopping on one of our buses to go to school. At the end of the school day we return to the schools and bring the children back to our facility until parents pick up. During holidays, breaks, and summers we provide full time care.
Students in our after-school program begin their afternoon with a snack. From there they have Exploration (playground) time with games and activities, Homework time and Recreation (classroom) time. The Recreation classroom is divided into interest area centers: Reading/Language; Science/Discovery; Math; Building; Art; and Music/Movement.
When the children are here for full days additional activities are planned. Some of these include special art projects, science experiments, group games, and individual challenges. During the summer we offer field trips based on the preferences of the children. Favorite trips include the Orlando Science Center, Amway Center Mascot Games, Medieval Times, Wonder Works, bowling, and skating. The children also enjoy water days to cool down during the hot weather.
Our Wellington Academy winners program has been developed to meet the needs of school age children and their parents. Age-appropriate activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, music, computers, outdoor play, group projects, and time to do homework are offered.
