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 Subsidies are accepted in Alberta for families who qualify.

Sign up for a day, a few days, a week or the entire summer and let them explore their communities, stretch their minds and build lasting friendships! Find out more here

Meet The Director

My name is Myrna Manzano and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Eau Claire centre.I have been working at Kids & Company since October of 2009, and am a recipient of a Level 3 Child Development Supervisor and Bachelor of Secondary Education diploma from the Philippines. I have loved being with children since I was in high school and have over 24 years of child care experience. To tell you a bit more about myself, I am celebrating 19 years of marriage with my husband this year and I have three beautiful daughters, Isabela, Hannah and Kristin. In my spare time, I enjoy singing and dancing, spending time with my family, watching movies and trying new restaurants. I love working at Kids & Company because it gives me the opportunity to work with children and see how they grow everyday, which brings me so much happiness. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Eau Claire centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • 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
    • 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.

  • Preschool
    • 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.

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.
