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.

Meet The Director
I am Maggie (Jie) Tang the Director at the Kids & Company Evanston centre. I received my Early Childcare Diploma from Bow Valley College as well as a Language Art Degree from China. I started with Kids & Company in 2014 and have worked for over 10 years in the child care industry.
At the Evanston centre, we have a strong team and work well together as a big family. I believe that every child is unique, and develops at their own pace. With positive and effective support, every child will reach their full potential. I believe that children’s learning experiences should be fun as children learn most effectively through play.
I am a big believer in the power of relationships and positive communication. Building strong relationships with children and their families is the foundation of our practice. Keeping positive communication with colleagues, children, and their families can build a positive working, playing, and learning environment. In my free time, I like to play the piano, guitar and paint! Travel is definitely one of my passions, I try to visit at least one country every year.
Now that you know about me, 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 for a tour and see everything that Evanston has to offer!
