Our Kanata location is a large building in the Eagleson Place plaza at the corner of Eagleson Rd. and Michael Cowpland Dr. We have ample parking out front to make drop-off and pick-up easy, and the plaza is accessible by several bus routes.
Our 10 classrooms can accommodate 145 children from 0 months to 12 years old. The large open-concept space inside is surrounded by large windows that brighten our children’s days. Classrooms are equipped with password-protected webcams to keep parents up to date on their child’s day. Outside is an expansive playground equipped with toys and a soft rubber ground to keep everyone safe as they explore.
We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and School Age programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care. School Age is available for School Breaks, Summer Camp, and Before and Afters School Care with transportation to and from select local schools.
Children are provided with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Learn more here.

Meet the Director
My name is Zeinab Hajraf, and I am the Centre Director of Kids & Company Eagleson. I have been working in childcare for over 13 years. I grew up raising my siblings and did a lot of babysitting, therefore, I love being around kids and understanding them and helping them out in many ways. At Kids & Company, I enjoy working with the staff and all the parents and children.
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.
Kids & Company’s School Age program accepts children from 5 - 12 years old (Grade 1 - 6) and is available at select locations. Programs include Before and After School Care, School Break Programming, and Summer Camp. Classroom space exists for smaller groups to gather, and activities are designed to meet the needs of varying developmental levels, touching on arts, science, math, drama, imaginative play, and physical fitness. Educators are also available to provide academic support for children that wish to do their homework during After School Care.
