Our Kids & Company Britannia Crossing location offers families a brand new school with a warm and sunny atmosphere in South West Calgary. We have 12 classrooms and can accommodate up to 136 children. In addition to full-day programs, we also offer half-day kindergarten and do pick-ups and drop-offs from Elboya Elementary School on 6th Street SW. Our centre has a family-like environment where the teachers know each child’s name, and form great relationships with all of our families. Our team works dynamically together and takes both pleasure and pride in seeing all of our children transition through each program. Whether our children are practising their Alpha-Mania (Pre-literacy), Mini-Masters (Art), or Munchkinetics (Movement) programs, enjoying nutritious meals from our in-house Kidco Kitchen chefs, or playing outside in our playground, our centre is always filled with happy and smiling faces!
When you visit, you’ll notice our rooms are filled with natural light from all of the windows. We are thrilled to have an indoor Gym (Gross Motor room) where our children can play on even the coldest days and a rooftop playground with a green roof feature. Parents love our indoor heated parkade for drop off & pick up.
We know children who sing, dance and explore music regularly perform better in academic settings and tend to have higher self-esteem and social skills. That’s why we believe in introducing it at an early age and run a daily music program that involves interactive songs, rhythmic expression, games and movement. At this centre, we are also affiliated with Together with Heather Music. Heather and her musicians join us each week – on rotating days so our part-time children see them – bringing along age-appropriate tools like shakers, rattles, ukuleles and more. With a background in musical therapy and a successful career in creating children’s albums, this partner complements our music program perfectly. https://rattleandstrum.com/together-with-heather-music.
Free underground parking available for drop off and pick up.
Meet the Director
My name is Bisakha Mukherjee and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Britannia Crossing centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2007 and am a recipient of diplomas in Level 3 Early Childhood Education, English Composition and Interpersonal Communication from Lethbridge College. In addition, I have my Master of Science with a specification in Child Development from Jadavpur University in India.
To tell you a bit more about myself, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also love to watch movies, listen to classical music and read all types of books. You’ll often find me hosting some of our Kids & Company Calgary Birthday Parties on weekends as I love being around children in my spare time! I love working at Kids & Company and am passionate about the enhanced curriculum and amazing proprietary programs we offer. I take both pleasure and pride in seeing each of our students grow and reach their various milestones! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Britannia Crossing centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your 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.
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.
