Excellence at The Wellington School begins with our early childhood program.


Little Jags is Wellington’s early childhood experience for students who are 3 years of age by September 1 and reliably toilet trained. The program provides a nurturing environment, stimulating curriculum, strong teachers, small class sizes, and engaging adventures in learning. Students work with specially trained classroom teachers and specialists in art, music, French, physical education, library, and guidance as they actively learn about the world around them, while developing a familiarity with the Wellington campus.

  3. If your child is currently in a childcare program, ask your child’s most recent teacher or school director to complete the Teacher Recommendation Form and return it to the Admissions Office.
