Our Kids & Company Aurora centre is located at the northeast corner of Wellington St. East and Industrial Parkway. Our centre has 9 classrooms that can accommodate up to 131 children. Our location has one playground suited for toddlers and a separate playground designed for our preschoolers. There is a lovely park close by where our teachers love to take our infants on stroller walks along the beautiful walking trails. We are also close to a splash pad and public library which are great options for occasional field trips. We have a fantastic team of teachers who work hard together to create a safe and nurturing environment for our children and families.
Kids & Company Aurora is located in Wellington Business Centre plaza. There is a large parking lot with a fair amount of parking as well as a drop off round about out front.
Meet the Director
My name is Cheryll Nerger, and I am the Director of the Kids & Company Aurora centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2014, and have an Early Childhood Education diploma from Centennial College. To let you know more about myself, I began working in the child care field over 25 years ago when I was 12 years old! I am the very proud mother of two amazing boys; Ryan and Eric. In my spare time, I enjoy baking and turning my cakes into beautiful works of art. Outside the house, I love being my boys biggest fans in all that they do. My oldest is crazy into fitness and bodybuilding and my youngest keeps me busy in the rinks cheering him and his team on as a hockey mom! I absolutely love our Aurora centre and all the amazing families that we have and will have. Our team here works hard to make our centre a warm, fun and inviting place to be. They make me proud every day. Kids & Company offers families an amazing place for their children to grow and learn with all the amazing programs we offer from Alpha-Mania to teach literacy skills to Yoga and Munchkinetics to work on their gross motor development. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Aurora Centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
Kids & Company runs comprehensive kindergarten programs designed for children who are 4 or 5 years old (junior and senior kindergarten age) to prepare them for Grade 1. Using emergent curriculum techniques to adapt to the children’s’ interests and skills, we set a foundation of early literacy, numeracy, artistry, and the construction of relationships and ideas. Kindergarten programs are integrated into full-time child care to provide convenience and continuity.
