Why do people choose Wee College? In a word – we care. It’s our identity. Our brand. Our promise. Whether you’re a child, a parent, or an educator, Wee College is where imaginations smile… where a passion for living, loving and learning are inspired. People come to Wee College because they share a belief in the pursuit of health, happiness, and prosperity.

- Our Mission – to inspire a passion for the 3-L’s…Living, Loving and Learning
- Our Program – The Pyramid
- Our Family Franchise Partners
Taken together, they help us to build better futures – for children… for families…. and for the early childhood care and learning industry. Take a moment to explore the Wee College Curriculum, and strengthen your child’s future today.

We believe ‘why?’ is the most important question you will ever ask.When the question ‘why?’ gets asked we encounter a moment of emotional wonder and immediately our imaginations and curiosity kick into gear – we become engaged in finding answers. So many things are worth wondering about, yet so few people take the time to discover. As learners we naturally ask questions, make observations and get excited when we explore new pathways to deeper understanding. For example, a child’s connection to their family, interest in stories, or curiousity towards a bird feasting at a feeder provide teachable moments that move learners from what they already know into an exploration of the unknown.
When you believe you can do it, most of the obstacles holding you back simply melt away.
Self-reliance is really about believing in your abilities, dreams and potential – and it’s a mindset that’s easily nurtured and developed from an early age. Learner-centered environments allow children and youth to become partners and architects of their own learning. It makes what they learn more engaging, relevant and fun, but perhaps more importantly, it serves as a catalyst for fostering an ‘I can do it attitude’ and a spirit of independence.
We care, but we’re not a Day Care.
We use play as a vehicle for learning, but we’re not a Play School.
We believe that anyone can learn at any stage in his or her life. We also believe that infants, children and youth learn best when they’re having fun. Fun isn’t the measure of success, but it serves as a vehicle for increasing learner engagement.
Wee College is committed to achieving age specific learning outcomes based on the Provincial Early Learning and Childcare Framework developed in collaboration with the Department of Education and UNB Fredericton. That’s where we differentiate ourselves from traditional childcare centres.
Your child is having fun because the activities and web-based learning themes are designed to encourage ownership (self-reliance), are connected to what your child already knows (relevance) and stretches the learner to create a deeper level of understanding (new knowledge).
Do you remember when you were a kid and could do anything? We see that potential shine on a daily basis.
