Our homey Beltline location is just south of Calgary’s downtown core on the west side of the Beltline neighbourhood. This centre is convenient for those who live and work in the area or commute into the core from the south end of Calgary. Our programs are suited for Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers on a full-time, part-time or backup care basis.
We have 4 sunny and spacious classrooms stocked with toys that support our emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. Each classroom is also equipped with a webcam for caregivers to check in throughout the day. Outside, we have three large playground areas separated by age group to allow for plenty of outdoor play throughout the year.
Children are provided with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Learn more here.

Meet the Director
My name is Kalpana Bashyal, and I am the Centre Director of Kids & Company Beltline. I have a Master’s in Education with a major in Health Education & Child Psychology from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal. I have been working in the child care field for over 15 years. I enjoy watching children see the world through their own lens and nurturing their development every day. Their abundant creativity, playfulness, and innocence motivate me to establish myself in this field. I love being a witness to children’s growth and development while setting up their foundation for lifelong learning, and I am proud to be a part of Kids & Company.
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.
