Our centre offers families a cozy, intimate, and family-friendly atmosphere in the busy West end of Toronto. We have 5 classrooms and can accommodate up to 74 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Our centre has a family-like environment where all the teachers know each and every child`s name, and form great relationships with all of our families. Our team works dynamically together and takes both pleasure and pride in seeing all of our children grow and transition through each program. Whether our children are practising their Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy), Mini-Masters (art), or Munchkinetics (movement) programs, enjoying nutritious meals from our in-house Kidco Kitchen chefs, or playing outside in our playground, our centre is always filled with happy and smiling faces!

Meet the Director

My name is Stephanie Samanica and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Etobicoke centre. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Education from Seneca College and have been working in the child care field since I was 15 years old. Prior to becoming a Director, I was a teacher in the infant room for 6 years. During this time I gained invaluable experience and a thorough understanding of our proprietary programs, child development and the daily classroom routines.

Beyond the world of child care, I enjoy spending time with my partner, David and I am the mother of two lovely boys, Adamo and Luca. My children are amusement park junkies, so we spend most of our summer visiting Canada’s Wonderland, Centre Island, The Ex, or any other outdoor park. They also love jumping on our trampoline, swimming, and just being active. They really keep me busy! My dream vacation is going to Disneyland as a family…maybe coming second on my list to seeing Hawaii with my husband. In my spare time, I like to go out dancing and have barbecues with my friends and family. I also love to relax with a good book or explore my neighbourhood while on a jog. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Etobicoke centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • day care center

      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
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      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
    • child looking through a magnifying glass

      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.
