Our Kids & Company Cochrane centre is located just east of Hwy 22/Cowboy Trail in the picturesque new community of Sunset. We have 13 classrooms and can accommodate up to 134 children. We can see the beautiful Rocky Mountains through our large windows and natural light brightens our classrooms throughout the day. We have an enthusiastic and dedicated team of teachers who develop and adapt our curriculum by observing and listening to your children. We take both pleasure and pride in seeing our children grow and transition through our various programs.

I am Dharti Gajjar, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Cochrane. I have a Master of Arts degree and a Master of Education degree. I have been working in child care for over 5 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2018. I have always wanted to work in child care because I feel a sense of honor being able to teach our young generations and watch them grow into intelligent individuals. My husband and I have a beautiful, young daughter and we love to spend time together as a family. In my spare time, I love relaxing, listening to music, and cooking. The Kids & Company Cochrane location is located within viewing distance of the Rocky Mountains. Our natural environment offers the children a diverse learning experience, utilizing our beautiful indoor and outdoor space. We have a wonderful staff who are always willing to support new and existing families as much as we can. Kids & Company is flexible, and offers a variety of curriculum, ensuring your children have the best care. It would be my pleasure to meet you and give you a tour of our Cochrane centre. Now that you know a little more about me, I hope to see you and your family soon!
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.
