Our Kids & Company Ellerslie centre is located on the south side of the city in the Fountain Tire building, off of Gateway Blvd and Ellerslie Trail. Our centre is bright and spacious with 9 classrooms that can accommodate up to 135 children. We overlook a beautiful ravine and make great use of the walking trails year around. We have a fantastic group of teachers who take both pleasure and pride in seeing our children grown and transition through each program. Subsidies are accepted in Alberta for families who qualify. Contact the Centre Director or click here for more information from Alberta Child and Youth Services. Did you know we have camp programs for school age kids? 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. Kids & Company is a proud member of the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce.
Meet The Director
My name is Charyl Sanmillan and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Ellerslie location. I started with Kids & Company in 2014 and have been in the child care field for almost three decades! I hold a Doctorate of Education from the Baguio Central University in the Philippines. When I first began my training with a Bachelor of Education, I realized my calling was to work with children. My work is dedicated to understanding, shaping and loving our next generation. I have been married for many years and have three children; the oldest is 19 and the youngest 5. I love to travel and read, but my favourite things are to spend time with my kids catching up, watching movies, reading together and playing games. I was very excited to start at Kids & Company because of the focus on families. The teachers and I have lots of support allowing us to provide the best quality of child care and a good learn-through-play environment – it creates a genuinely happy place to be at each day and when you visit us you’ll see a lot of children hugging their teachers and playing excitedly alongside them. I also really like the flexibility available to our parents. Now that you know a bit about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Join us for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
