Welcome to Kids & Company Abington! We offer full and part time programs for children ranging from six weeks through to six years.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Regarding Open House: Please note our Abington location is available on the first Saturday of every month between 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Hello, my name is Robin Purtell and I am the Center Director for Kids & Company’s Abington location. I started my career with Kids & Company in February 2022 and I have been working in the child care industry for over 10 years. I knew that this was the right career for me as I have always appreciated and loved watching children learn and grow in a fun, safe environment. Our center is well known in the town of Abington. We have a very strong sense of community and diversity, and we take pride in the care we provide for not only our children at the center, but the community all around. I was so excited to start my career at Kids and Company when I saw what a great, family-oriented, supportive and open community it was. Now that you know more about me, I would be thrilled to meet you and your family! I look forward to welcoming you to the Kids & Company Abington center so you can see for yourself how incredible the program is in providing the right care and education for your children.
Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 18 months. Infants learn about the world around them through their senses, so exploration is critical to their development. Nurturing educators support the children while they take in their surroundings, encouraging them to experience everything the classroom offers; be it creative art, exploring with blocks, listening to songs or engaging in story-time. Our infant program encourages children to follow their own established routines, while becoming comfortable and secure in a new group setting.
Kids & Company’s Toddler program is for children between the ages of roughly 18 months and 2.5 years. Toddlers are mobile and eager to explore their environment. As they strive for independence, our educators use an Emergent curriculum approach to learning that supports each child’s individuality. Some of the most important learning outcomes of our toddler program are language development, socialization, self-help skills, and the development of fine and gross motor skills.
Kids & Company’s Preschool program is designed for children between the ages of roughly 2.5 - 5 years. Our educators interact, observe and interpret the interests of our children to encourage discoveries. Our Preschool program provides a foundation for developing greater independence and problem-solving skills; the program integrates new concepts into our children’s world view, promotes sharing and mutual respect, and prepares them for Kindergarten.
