Join us February 10th: Let’s Talk About Community!
Children love to learn about the people and places in their neighborhood. At this month’s Social, we’ll be talking about ways you and your family can get involved in the community and make a positive difference in the world around you. Talk with teachers, meet other parents, and participate in fun family activities!
Welcome to Woodland Early Learning Center! We are located on the University of Kentucky campus. Our proprietary educational program provides unlimited opportunities for the development of the whole child. We offer a unique curriculum for every age level, centered around developmentally appropriate and fun activities encouraging children to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. Woodland Early Learning Center is proud to offer care to the families of University of Kentucky as well as those in the surrounding community.

We absolutely love the administration, teachers, and staff at WELC. We cannot give enough praise! Our son feels loved, safe, and happy with his teachers and friends. We have been so impressed with the education he has received in the Toddler classroom! He surprises us all the time with what he has learned. Thank you for all that you do and for your boundless positivity! I feel happy after interacting with the WELC staff every day!
