Welcome to Kids & Company Canton, located directly off Turnpike Street in Canton, just 5 miles southwest of the heart of Boston, MA. This location host seven classrooms, providing excellent care and education for children ranging in age from infants at six weeks through to Preschoolers at six years old, with 72 total spaces. We are located in a brand new building with a state-of-the-art synthetic turf play yard, hopscotch board and premium outdoor play equipment!
Our classroom offers beautiful natural light for when children are awake and ready to play, and a warm and restful area for them to work on sleeping patterns during naptime. At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We are proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Regarding Open House: Please note our Canton location is available on the first Saturday of every month between 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
I am Sara McDonald, the Centre Director at Kids & Company Canton. I studied in the ECE and EEC Director Certification Program and have been working in child care for over 15 years. I am passionate about child care because children make me view the world in a different way. They teach me something new each day. I love all the resources Kids & Company provides, not only as a Director but as a parent. What makes our Canton location unique is that we have large windows which allow plenty of natural light into our rooms. I’d love to meet your family and take you on a tour of our location!
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.
