- What does Kids & Company do?
Do the child care centres provide food?
Absolutely! Kidco Kitchen provides a variety of nutritional and culturally diverse foods that exceed Canada’s Food Guide recommendations. Each day consists of a morning snack (more like a breakfast), a hot lunch, and an afternoon snack. Each lunch contains a protein, a carbohydrate, vegetables and fruit servings. Every week Kidco Kitchens serve at least 1 fish and vegetarian meal, in addition to chicken and beef. The food is made from scratch with no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. And, for the ride home and the inevitable “I’m hungry!”, Kidco Kitchens recently implemented a Grab N’ Go program where a nutritious snack is available to children as they leave for the day.
Does Kids & Company charge late fees? How much are they?
No. Kids & Company never charges late fees. (Compare this to other child cares and preschools, which often charge $1.00 per minute when parents run late).

Full-time and Part-time Child Care
How far in advance must I book for full-time or part-time care?
We encourage parents to give centres as much advance notice as possible, however, member-linked families are guaranteed a space at one of the Kids & Company centres within a 6 month time frame from their registration date.
What is the full/part-time fee for my child to attend?
Our fees are based on the age of the child, number of days attending and the Kids & Company location chosen. Fees can be found at www.kidsandcompany.com once you Sign-in, and on the Parent Portal (once the registration process has been completed). You may also call your preferred location and speak with the Centre Director to get exact fees based on your child’s age and your care needs.
Can I just use 2 or 3 days a week?
Yes! Kids & Company prides itself on its flexibility and therefore days can range from 1 day a week to 5 days a week for part-time/full-time care. We even accommodate rotating schedules (e.g., 2 days one week and 3 days the following).
