This Massachusetts location is in the Canton neighborhood, located directly off Turnpike Street in Canton, just 5 miles southwest of the heart of Boston. We are in a standalone building and have a parking lot for parents to use during pick-up and drop-off. We are not within walking distance of any bus stops or T stations, so this location is recommended for caregivers travelling by car.
Our beautiful and bright building is nestled in a cozy and quiet area that is surrounded by trees. Once you walk inside our building, you’ll notice a large and open entranceway that welcomes you inside. Each of our spacious classrooms gets lots of natural light and is filled with educational and age-appropriate toys. They are also equipped with password-protected webcams that allow parents to check in on their children throughout the day.
Outside is a state-of-the-art synthetic turf play yard, hopscotch board and premium outdoor play equipment! There is also a large awning to shade part of the playground on sunny or rainy days.
Our 7 classrooms can accommodate 53 children from newborn to 6 years old. The Infant and Toddler programs are available full-time, and the Preschool program is available on a full-time or part-time basis.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. This means children are presented with learning opportunities in direct response to their individual interests and skills. Our children are immersed in experiences that enhance language, literacy, a sense of music and rhythm, and socialization so that they may develop independence, confidence and a positive sense of self and the world around them.
Children are provided with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our in-house Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors. Learn more here.

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.
