Eramosa Learning Academy Awarded Contract to Operate New Licensed Child Care Centre at St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School in Guelph.

[Guelph, Ontario, December 18, 2023] - Eramosa Learning Academy (ELA), formerly GS CARE, proudly announces its new contract with the Wellington Catholic District School Board to operate licensed child care in the under-construction centre at St. Patrick Catholic Elementary School (391 Victoria Road N. at Woodlawn). Building on a strong, eight-year relationship with the school community through operating the before and after school program at St. Patrick, ELA is set to expand its offerings at the location by introducing a 64-space early learning program for infants to preschoolers. The projected opening date for the centre is July 2024.

This announcement marks a significant milestone for ELA, which recently debuted licensed, week-long, S.T.E.A.M. school-age camps in Guelph and Rockwood—a distinctive and unique designation empowering ELA to offer subsidized and CWELCC spaces for camps. Additionally, ELA currently operates an early learning centre in Rockwood and six before and after school programs in Guelph. All current ELA programs are part of the CWELCC (Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care) program.

“We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract, which builds on our existing relationship with the Wellington Catholic District School Board. The Brant neighbourhood needed additional child care spaces in the community and we look forward to serving more families in Guelph at this new facility" remarked Owner and Pedagogical Leader, Noma Vales. “Having operated as GS CARE, Guelph School-Age Care, for two decades and establishing a reputable presence in Guelph, our rebranding to Eramosa Learning Academy signifies our growing, evolving and inclusive focus on educational programs in Wellington County."

Registration for the new centre is not currently open. The registration opening date will be posted on the ELA website.
