Bedford (Dellridge Lane)

Our Centre

Our Kids & Company Bedford centre is one of the largest child care centres in Atlantic Canada and is conveniently located at the top of Larry Uteck behind the CIBC building. We are one of the biggest Kids & Company centres with 10 classrooms that can accommodate up to 176 children ranging from infants to school age. Our centre has spacious rooms, high ceilings, and large windows which help to create a fresh and warm learning environment. We also have a massive outdoor playground where our children love to run, play, and practice their Munchkinetics physical activity program. We have an amazing group of teachers who work hard to bring out the best in each and every child.

Did you know we have camp programs for school age kids? Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here.

Kids & Company is a proud member of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce.

Meet The Director

My name is Kelly Richards and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Bedford centre. I am a recipient of diploma from St. Joseph’s College of Early Childhood Education and have been in the child care field for over 15 years.

To let you know a bit about myself, I was fortunate enough to marry my high school sweetheart Gary! We have been married for 20 years now and have 2 lovely children, Jaedon (19) and Leah (16). In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, having coffee with my friends and reading a good book in the sun. Even though I am an adult, I still love colouring and find it very relaxing!

At Bedford I love the diversity of our families, and the strong sense of community. All of our families and teachers know each other so well and it never ceases to make me smile! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Bedford centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • 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
    • 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.

  • Preschool
    • 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.

  • Kindergarten Programs
    • 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.
