About Us

Mission Statement

Wee Care Center, Inc. provides support for families by developing each child’s intellectual, social and emotional potential in a nurturing educational environment.

Wee Care charges tuition on a graduated scale.

The Marlyn Teague Scholarship is available for a family in need. Applications are available upon request.


Children develop in a predictable sequence of stages, but each child displays unique characteristics, needs, and behaviors within these stages. The Wee Care staff recognizes each stage and designs curriculum and experiences that encourage each child to reach his/her full potential within each developmental stage.

  • Children grow and develop at different rates and each child’s developmental pattern is separate and distinct from that of any other child.
  • Play is the central activity of young children. Age-appropriate play enables children to reach their full potential — socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.
  • Children learn through direct immediate involvement with the environment through sensory experiences such as observation, discussion, manipulation and experimentation.
  • Self reliance is best nurtured in an environment of structured freedom that encourages independence and trust.



Wee Care Center was organized in 1964 as a mission of the First Presbyterian Church to help meet the needs of working parents. It is a non-profit organization with a governing Board of Trustees drawn from a cross section of the Wayne County area.

Wee Care is licensed by the State of Ohio for eighty children and meets the standards of certification. The center accepts children beginning with those who are 2 1/2 years of age and toilet trained, and ending with those in 3rd grade (including the summer following 3rd grade). Additionally, 4th through 6th grade children who have previously been a part of the Wee Care program may apply for the Child Assistant mentoring program during summer camp. At the end of the handbook you will find an attachment about licensing and other valuable information. Please take the time to read this information.
