First Steps School Age

The building at 55 Delhi Street was constructed in 1910 in the Georgian revival style; it was a nurses’ residence for Guelph General Hospital until the late 1950s. In the lower level is a childcare service. The lower red-brick walls have been beautifully restored to teach children about Guelph’s heritage. The rustic furnishings and bright windows create a welcoming atmosphere.
