The Bloor Christie location is a two-story freestanding building on the south side of Bloor, a few blocks east of Bathurst and Bloor. There are about 4 street parking spots in front of our building that parents can use for pick-up and drop-off. We are also a 2-minute walk from the Christie subway station for families travelling by transit.
We have 4 classrooms that can accommodate 56 children from 2 months to 5 years. The bright colours and natural light in our building create a warm and nurturing environment that makes you forget we are located in a busy, urban district. We are a small group that has a strong sense of family and community, and we share a lot of love within our walls!
Our location offers Infant, Toddler, Preschool, and Kindergarten programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care. We offer flex care at this location, where possible, to accommodate families that have irregular schedules. Flex care allows you to pick the number of days you’d like your child to attend per week, and even lets you split the time between locations. Caregivers will also have access to password-protected webcams to keep up to date on their child’s day.
We provide our children 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 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!
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.
