The Kidco Way

At Kids & Company, we foster growth in the Kidco Way; creating a culture of kindness, innovation, diversity, courage and optimism. We rely heavily on these values to guide our decision-making, our problem-solving and the way we treat our employees, families and partners.

Letter K of The Kidco Way

Kind

Be thoughtful, listen and understand.

  • We act with kindness first and foremost.
  • We understand kindness fosters positive emotional ties with our children.
  • We invest in an ‘employee care’ attitude to help teams bring their best selves each day.

Innovative

Embrace imagination, resourcefulness and continuous learning.

  • We use creative, original thinking every day.
  • We encourage out-of-the-box thinking in our classrooms.
  • We value and nurture fresh ideas with staff.
Letter D of The Kidco Way

Diverse

Respect, embrace and celebrate our differences.

  • We are intentional in maintaining a diverse and inclusive organization.
  • We celebrate every child’s unique background.
  • We embrace different internal perspectives when making decisions.
Letter C of The Kidco Way

Courageous

Be bold, brave and speak up for what you believe in.

  • We know it takes bold action and courageous leadership to build a successful organization.
  • We teach our children to persevere against challenges and stand up for each other.

Grow The Kidco Way Curriculum

We take the role of nurturing and developing the minds, bodies and spirits of children seriously.

We demonstrate curiosity and excitement about the world around us by approaching the world according to the values of The Kidco Way.

“Those are the words that really speak to who we are as an organization.”

In 2020, during the global pandemic, Kids & Company paused to collaborate across teams on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ we do what we do. With a firm belief that children are the future, we aim to impact their present. And our approach is guided heavily by the values of being kind, innovative, diverse, courageous and optimistic.
