Our Center

Welcome to Kids & Company Dover! 

This location was formerly called “Aa to Zz”, but has since been purchased by Kids & Company and now operates with our staff and proprietary programming.

Our location is proudly endorsed by Eco-Healthy Child Care®, a program that partners with child care professionals to eliminate environmental hazards in early learning settings with the goal of protecting the health of children and staff. 

You can’t miss our large red building (that was previously a firehouse!) that is directly behind the McDonald’s off Route 74. Our standalone building provides a quiet and private environment for children to learn, and we have a small parking lot out front that parents can use during pick-up and drop-off. There are also bus stops nearby for families travelling by transit.

Inside the building you’ll find spacious classrooms that are separated by half-walls, making it a cozy and intimate environment for children and staff. Classrooms are colorful, light-filled, and full of educational and age-appropriate toys. Outside we have a fenced-in mulch area with structures for children that are ready to run, jump, and climb. There is another fenced-in play space that is open and equipped with toys for younger children who are just developing their gross motor skills. 

Our 6 classrooms can accommodate 117 children in our Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten Prep, and School Age programs. The School Age program runs Before and After School care, School Break care, and Summer Camp. Transit from Dover Elementary, North Salem Elementary, Leib Elementary and Weiglestown Elementary is provided by the school district. Children that are 6 years and under are welcome on a full-time or part-time (3 full days or 5 half days) basis, with backup care being available on an ad-hoc 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.

We serve our children breakfast, lunch, and snacks each day, all prepared in our on-site kitchens. Formula is also available for our Infants.

We are proud members of the Keystone STARS (Standards, Training/Professional Development, Assistance, Resources, and Supports) program, a rating system that promotes quality improvement in early learning and development programs and school-age child care. Early learning programs participating in Keystone STARS are rated from STAR 1 to a STAR 4. We have been rated as STAR 4, the highest rating, meaning our staff education, learning environment, leadership/management, and family/community partnerships meet the highest performance standards!

Meet the Director

My name is Gabrielle Gwynn, and I am the Center Director of Kids & Company in Dover. I hold a CDA for Preschool and am currently pursuing my Associate/Bachelor’s Degree. I have been working in child care since 2012. Children represent the next generation—the future doctors, teachers, and policemen. I am passionate about contributing to their developmental growth and supporting their families. The resources and support from Kids & Company have been instrumental in helping us reach our desired goals.

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • day care center

      Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 15 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.

  • Toddlers
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      Kids & Company’s Toddler program is for children between the ages of roughly 15 months and 2.9 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.
