Welcome to Kids & Company Evanston! Our beautiful centre is nestled in the Arrive townhome development in Evanston, blending into the architecture and community. The rooms feature large windows and high ceilings to create a fresh and spacious learning environment for our children. We have 10 classrooms and can accommodate up to 144 children ranging from infants to school age. 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, yoga, French, science and exploration, and creative play throughout our day. Our Kidco Kitchen creates healthy, made-from-scratch snacks and lunch for the children each day. At the end of the day, as you gather your child’s belongings from their dedicated cubbie, they can help themselves to a complimentary Grab and Go snack for the ride home. More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance. 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
I have four beautiful children, my oldest is also part of the Evanston Team. I find it really exciting that I can share my Kids & Company family with my own family. My family loves to go camping, take our two dogs to the dog park, and enjoy the outdoors. In my spare time, I love scrapbooking and have recently taken an interest in photography and baking. I hope to take some classes to improve my skills in both areas. I also volunteer as a social worker, helping to give back to the community in Calgary. I love the fact that I am able to implement my experience and knowledge from social work at our Evanston centre. As the Director, I’m involved in anything from equipping each classroom and managing teachers to implementing new programs and working with our families. The experiences I have with our children and community makes this place so special for me and like a second home! I’d love to meet you to tell you why I think Kids & Company would be a wonderful place for your family. Please stop by, say Hello! (or Bonjour! or Hola!), take a tour and see everything that Evanston has to offer!
