If I could give the school no stars it would be a more appropriate rating. The Fort Myers location seems to struggle with leadership in their front office and in the classrooms. The staff is constantly changing, and the number of young inexperienced women working in the classroom is evident from their response and ability work well with the children and vocalize strengths and weaknesses to parents. It seems that the staff is also treated poorly with rumors that one teacher was fired by text message on her lunch break, and other teachers who were very friendly saying they were looking elsewhere. The Fort Myers location has also had three directors in recent history, with each new on the school seems less able to have quality standards. They also staff up on days where they have visits from any group or institution which accesses them, giving them high, but inaccurate scores.

My daughter went there for about 6 months and I really liked it. She loved her teachers and I would love to have her back there again if I move in the area.

Wellington offers a very structured environment for early learning in children from 6 weeks through pre-K as well as after school and summer programs. The staff are consistent with providing well-supervised activity along with learning. They adhere to a strict well child policy, so be prepared to keep your children home when they are sick. The meals are balanced for nutrition and good manners are reinforced. The school is secure and they keep the age groups separate. The wait list is sometimes up to six months, so plan ahead. My children learned counting, colors, and alphabets in English, Spanish, and sign language. They have taken extra curricular dance, physical education, and music. There is a number of recitals, parades, and recognition days through the year.

My daughter loves her teachers and the other children. There are rarely any 'incidents'. The teachers are very loving and truely love what they do, I am very glad I chose this particular school. The school is very clean and sanitary. They involve the parents as much as possible and give a daily report.

My children attended Wellington Academy from age 3 to 5 1/2. The amount of learning was incredible. The teachers are excellent, the staff is great, and the kids loved the experience. Their elementary school can pick out the kids who received early childhood education at Wellington Academy - they are the ones above grade level and/or in the gifted program. It's the best investment I could have made for my children. Thank you! (and no, I am not an employee of the school)

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
