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.

My name is Jennifer Forsey and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Cochrane centre. I have been working with Kids & Company since 2017 and have over 5 years of experience in the child care field. I am a recipient of a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Psychology. To tell you more about myself, in my spare time I like to relax, camp and spend as much time outside as I can. I love watching movies and reading. My husband’s name is Barry and we do not have children just yet! My favourite thing about our Cochrane centre is the children and our team. Our centre is unique in that we are 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. Now that you know a bit more about me, it would be my pleasure to meet you and give you a tour of our Cochrane centre. Come see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide quality 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.
Kids & Company offers school-age adventures during school breaks and summer for children 6-12, with select centres offering support during online schooling. We meet each morning at your chosen centre and then undertake daily adventures on-site. We plan themes and outings that are designed to stimulate and excite in a setting that is safe, social and fun. Children who join us for a day, a week or a summer create important friendships and exercise their minds and bodies.
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 out to Christie firstname.lastname@example.org
