Eau Claire

Our Centre

Our Kids & Company Eau Claire centre opened in 2009 in the space of the historic Hard Rock Café and is located in the heart of downtown Calgary. Our centre is bright and beautiful with large windows letting in natural sunlight throughout the day, and creating a warm, fresh atmosphere. Our building backs onto the scenic Prince’s Island Park along the Bow River and is surrounded by nature. From our playground, the children have a clear view of the park and frequently see ducks in the nearby ponds, beautiful fountains and natural wildlife while doing their outdoor activities. We have a team of dedicated, enthusiastic and loving teachers who are truly invested in supporting your children in getting the best start in life. Our tight-knit family-like team takes pleasure and pride in watching our students grow and transition through our programs. We know children who sing, dance and explore music regularly perform better in academic settings and tend to have higher self-esteem and social skills. That’s why we believe in introducing it at an early age and run a daily music program that involves interactive songs, rhythmic expression, games and movement.

At this centre, we are also affiliated with Together with Heather Music. Heather and her musicians join us each week – on rotating days so our part-time children see them – bringing along age-appropriate tools like shakers, rattles, ukuleles and more. With a background in musical therapy and a successful career in creating children’s albums, this partner complements our music program perfectly. https://rattleandstrum.com/together-with-heather-music.

Meet The Director

My name is Audrie Dasalla and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Eau Claire. Our centre is very welcoming with bright colours and big windows that allow natural sunlight in our classrooms all day long. A typical day at Eau Claire includes unique Kids & Company programs such as Alpha Mania (reading), Mini Masters (art), Munchkinetics (movement), Music and French. When new parents visit our centre, I can’t help but boast about our amazing programs. Not only do the children love them, but they encourage creativity, self-expression, physical coordination and a love for learning that gives them a great foundation for kindergarten and beyond. To let you know a bit more about me, I hold a Degree of Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education and a Child Development Supervisor (Level III) Certificate. I have been working in the child care field for well over a decade and with Kids & Company since 2009. It was then that I became passionate about working with families and caregivers with multicultural backgrounds. I have a wonderful and adorable son named Julian. We love to spend time together watching movies, playing video games, taking adventures, swimming, reading books and playing sports. I also love cooking, listening to music and hanging out with old friends and relatives. Now that you know more about me, I would love to learn more about you and your family! Visit our Eau Claire centre for a chance to see if Kids & Company would be a good fit for your family. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have about our various programs and offerings!

      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.
