Meet the Director
My name is Janet Hannis, and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Burlington Children’s Centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since June of 2001, and have an Early Childhood Education diploma and a Resource Teacher Certificate from Mohawk College. To let you know more about myself, I began working in the child care field over 30 years ago and for 9 of those years, I was a foster parent. In that time span, my husband and I fostered 98 children ranging in ages from infants to 4 years old. Through that experience, we also adopted our youngest daughter, Annabelle. I am the very proud mother of three wonderful children, Michael, Nicole and Annabelle, and a grandmother to two amazing grandchildren! Family is the most important thing in my life; if I wasn’t a mom, I don’t know what I would be! On the weekends, I love to go camping with my family at Wasaga Beach and enjoy boating, tubing, fishing, hiking, and bike riding – well, pretty much anything outdoors! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Burlington Children’s 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.
Select Kids & Company locations offer school age programming for children ages 6-12 (Grades 1 – 6). Whether you have a younger child attending a Kids & Company location and you’d like the convenience of picking up your children in the same location or you’d like a program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.
