The Kids & Company Diamond centre is located in St. Vladimir Elementary School. We offer a half-day Kindergarten program for children as young as 19 months, as well as School-Age before and after care for children up to 12 years of age, with 5 classrooms and a capacity for up to 116 children. Before care is typically offered from 6:30-9:00AM, and after care from 3:30-6:00PM.
You’ll feel welcomed at our centre from the moment you step in and can be comforted with the convenience of having a child care program right in the school. Our outdoor area features an outdoor play area for the younger children and the School-Age children have access to the playgrounds. We offer snacks from our Kidco Super Snack Menu that are nutritious and well balanced. Our menu is developed to address the nutritional needs of growing children to comply with the most recent version of Canada’s Food Guide.
We pride ourselves on flexible, reliable child care that kids love and parents trust. Our rates are competitive and qualifying families can receive subsidy at our centre. Contact the Centre Director or click here for more information from Alberta Child and Youth Services.

My name is Jaime and I am the Director at the Diamond location. I have an Advanced ECE Diploma from Grant Macewan and have been working in child care for two decades. In my spare time you will find me with my family. My favourite thing about the staff at Diamond is that we laugh together and support each other every day. Our teachers also work hard to come up with creative activities and things to explore, such as our Birthday Box that has become a joyous and highly-anticipated experience on each child’s birthday. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
