Our Kids & Company Bloor Christie centre is located on the south side of Bloor, just a couple of blocks east of Bathurst and Bloor. We have 4 classrooms that can accommodate up to 56 children ranging in ages from infants to 5 years. The bright colours and natural light in our centre create a warm and nurturing environment which instantly makes you forget that we are located in a busy, urban district. We are a small centre that has a strong sense of family and community and a lot of love within our little walls! The staff here at Bloor Christie are the dream team; everyone comes from different backgrounds, both in culture and teaching experience, and work seamlessly together to create an excellent learning atmosphere for our children.
Our Bloor Christie location does not have a designated parking lot - paid street parking is available.
Meet the Director
My name is Elaha Badri and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Bloor Christie centre. I am a recipient of an RECE Diploma from George Brown College as well as A General Arts and Science Certificate and Practical Nursing Diploma from Centennial College. I have over 7 years of child care experience. Outside the world of child care, I come from a very close-knit family and my parents have always supported me. I have two sisters (one who is married) and a brother. I also have a precious niece that I adore! In my spare time, I enjoy reading, meditation and music. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Bloor Christie 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.
For the time being, our in-centre birthday party and other live events will temporarily not be available. If you require any information on future bookings or have any questions, please reach firstname.lastname@example.org
