Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in downtown Edmonton? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company Edmonton ICE District centre: it is located in the heart of downtown at 10111 104 Avenue in the new ICE District. We are excited to be part of Canada’s largest mixed-use sports and entertainment district and offer flexible child care options to its’ residents. Our centre has 8 classrooms and can accommodate up to 92 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Our classrooms are bright and sunny with huge windows looking into our learning spaces. We have a great outdoor terrace and playground which offers our children a safe space to play in and provides a picturesque view of the tall city skyscrapers and buildings nearby. At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re very proud of our proprietary programs! They include Alpha Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) and are designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! We often hear children singing the Alpha Mania theme song before the teacher even begins the lessons, a clear indication of their enthusiasm about learning through play. You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms, and all our children participate in music, French, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
There is 15 Minute drop off parking in the underground parkade on level 3. Parkade access is located on the west side of the building off of 102 Street.
Meet the Director
My name is Vidhya Rajeev and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Edmonton Ice. I started working at Kids & Company in 2018 and I have been working in the child care field for over four years. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, painting and cooking.
What I like most about our Edmonton Ice centre are the amazing staff members. There is a spirit of cooperation and support which in turn enhances our family-like environment. I love meeting new families and ensuring each child gets the unique care that they need to flourish. I want my Kids & Co. families to know that your child’s teachers are here to support you, listen to you and give you advice. Our educators want to work with you and your child in any way they can. Whether it’s helping them potty train, learn to share with others, or helping make the transition to Kids & Company as smooth as possible, we’re here to help!
Now that you know a bit about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Join us for a tour so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
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.
