Our Kids & Company Burloak centre is located at Burloak Dr, directly off of the QEW. We have 9 classrooms and can accommodate up to 123 children ranging from infant to school age. Every day our centre is brightly illuminated by the sun shining through our large classroom windows, creating a warm and fresh learning environment. The brightness of our centre is matched by the positivity and energy of our fantastic staff, who are constantly working together to bring out the best in your children!
There are Kids and Company drop off and pick up parking spots outside the west side of the building.
Meet the Director
My name is Sarah Koschir and I am the Director at our Kids & Company Burloak Centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since June of 2014 and have been working with children for over 15 years. I am the recipient of an Early Childhood Education Diploma from Mohawk College as well as a Masters in Education from Niagara University. To tell you a bit about myself, I have been married to my husband Derek for over 10 years and we have two beautiful children, Mya and Aria. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and travelling to new places. Now that you know a bit more about us, we would love to meet you! We hope you come to visit our centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company Burloak can provide the right care and education for your child.
Hello! I’m Mercedes Barberiz-Altamore, the Centre Director at Kids & Company Burloak 2. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Mohawk College. I started working with Kids & Company in 2017 and have over 10 years of experience in the child care field! In my spare time, I love being around family and friends, travelling and doing calligraphy. My personal philosophy is based on kindness, a smile goes a long way! My favourite thing about our centre is the amazing staff. They’re fun, energetic and always smiling. We offer so many different programs such as Alpha-Mania, Mini Masters and Munchkinetics. We also offer date nights twice a year! I think this is very exciting for families as it’s helpful to have a support system! Now that I’ve told you about me, I would love to meet you! Come visit our Burloak 2 centre for a visit and see all that Kids & Company has to offer.
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
