The Warsaw Area Career Center is excited to introduce the Warsaw Early Learning Academy to you, along with the staff members that will be caring for these children. This program was implemented to help support Warsaw Community School staff members & their families. The WELA currently has over 20 students with ages ranging from infants through 5 years old.

Communication is a very important with our parents and families in the childcare. The childcare will be using Brightwheel for parents to communicate to teachers/director and for them to send documents to parents. Sign-up for Brightwheel to get started.

Please see below for bios from our new staff members, with more pictures of the facility, & how much fun these sweet children have already been having as well!
