Now accepting applications for full and part-time care! Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Burlington area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company: At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re very proud of our proprietary programs! They include Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) and are designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! We often hear children singing the Alpha-Mania theme song before the teacher even begins the lessons, a clear indication of their enthusiasm about learning through play. You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms, and all our children participate in music, French, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day. Does your family have an untraditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs! More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
My name is Jessica Gori and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Beacon Hill centre. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma from Sheridan College and have been working at Kids & Company since March 2019. From a young age I have always loved taking care of children and now have over 10 years of experience in the child care field. To tell you more about myself, I am very proud of my 2 boys, Jacob and Eli. I met my husband Mariano in high school and we have been together for 11 years and married for 7 years. He moved here from Argentina in 1997 and I moved here from South Africa in 1998. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and taking them to new places. We love to travel and see different things. I love being outdoors and letting my children have fun and learn new things. I am so proud of the team we have here at the Beacon Hill centre, it feels like a second home. We work together closely and always help each other out any way we can. We love our children and families here, we enjoy watching them grow and move through the center hitting those milestones. Now that you know a bit about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Please come for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company Beacon Hill can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
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.
