Finch

Our Centre

Our Kids & Company Finch centre is conveniently located in an office building at Yonge Street and Finch Avenue. Though it is a busy area, as soon as you walk into our centre you immediately find yourself in a warm, engaging and nurturing environment. We have 5 classrooms that can accommodate up to 59 children ranging from infant to 5 years of age. Each classroom is filled with bright colours, natural sunlight and the smiling faces of both our children and teachers. Our outdoor playground is situated in a beautiful area in the building’s courtyard, surrounded by plenty of trees and gardens. It offers the children a great space to run, play, and practice their Munchkinetics movement program outside. We have an amazing team of enthusiastic and dedicated teachers who take both pleasure and pride in seeing our children grow and transition through each program.

Meet The Director

My name is Marianne Anderson and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Finch centre. I started with Kids & Company in 2013 and have been working in the child care field for over 18 years.

Throughout my 18 years in child care, my focus has been preschool children as well as infant early development. My philosophy is an anti-bias approach that attempts to ensure all children can see themselves in the space around them and identify familiar places, people, and ideals that mirror their home life. I use available resources, and work with staff to engage in a curriculum that reflects these values to help shape and mold children’s view of the world.

I attended York University and completed a Bachelor’s Degree with a Major in Sociology and a Minor in Psychology. I then attended Ryerson University and studied Racism in Canada and Popular Culture. 

In my spare time, I enjoy reading about social change and anti-bias policies, playing basketball, DIY crafting, baking and gardening! Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Finch 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

      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.

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.
