Our Early Years program is independent and volunteer run. It is funded by Wellspring Worship Centre, who receives donations from its generous community members. We are thankful for the Early Years Director, Ava, and her team of volunteers who keep this program open and free of charge.

Early Years at Wellspring

Treaty Acknowledgement

We [I] would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, the Métis, and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. This territory is also covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. Today, the meeting place of Toronto (from the Haudenosaunee word Tkaronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work/present in this territory.

When is this program Open?
Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays
9:30-11:30am
Ages 0-3 years

Tuesdays 10am-1pm
0-18 months

What Can I Expect?
You can expect open play time, a directed "circle" time, as well as snacks for children and coffee and tea for adults.

I Have Questions, Who can I Talk to?
Feel free to contact the Wellspring Ministry Coordinator, Jenna, using the information at the bottom of this page. During program hours please connect with Ava, the program director.

What Else do I need to Know?
During program the children remain under the care and supervision of their guardian. It is not the responsibility of the Early Years volunteers to take care of the children. All program participants are expected to abide by the direction and rules laid out by the Early Years volunteers.

How Can I Support the Program?
Running the Early Years programs costs approximately $5000 a year in supplies and $30,000 a year in working hours. If you would like to help with those costs you can make a tax-receiptable donation.
