Our location is located on the first floor of an office building at Yonge Street and Finch Ave. The Finch subway station exits right outside of the building, and there is parking at the back of the building for easy drop-off and pick-up.
We have 5 classrooms that can accommodate 59 children. We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care. Each classroom is filled with bright colours, natural sunlight and the smiling faces of both our children and teachers. Classrooms also have webcams which allow caregivers to keep up to date on their child’s day. Our outdoor playground is situated in a beautiful area in the building’s courtyard, surrounded by plenty of trees and gardens.
We provide our children with a hot lunch and 3 snacks each day, catered by our Kidco Kitchen. The Kidco Kitchen is founded on a fresh-from-scratch philosophy and our food contains no additives, preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Learn more here.

Meet the Director
I am Crystal Noriel, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Finch. I attended Humber College where I received a diploma for Early Childhood Education, and I attended The University of Ottawa where I received a Bachelor of Social Sciences and a Minor in Sociology. I have been working in child care for over 10 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2013. I first became interested in working with children after volunteering as an instructor in a children’s learn-to-skate program. During my high school years, I also worked part-time as a kitchen coordinator directing children’s birthday parties. I have a beautiful family of my own with my husband and my son Aiden. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting with family, travelling, and exploring the different walking trails around Toronto. I also enjoy winding down with a good colouring book. My favourite thing about the Kids & Company Finch location is that we are a small close-knit community. The children, staff and families all work together to create a welcoming and supportive environment. At Kids & Company, we are able to offer the best care for each child’s needs because we offer inclusive environments, and accommodate each family’s unique requirements. Through our welcoming and supportive spaces, the children are confident to be the leaders in their own learning. Now that you know a little more about me, I hope to see you and your family soon!
Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 18 months. Infants learn about the world around them through their senses, so exploration is critical to their development. Nurturing educators support the children while they take in their surroundings, encouraging them to experience everything the classroom offers; be it creative art, exploring with blocks, listening to songs or engaging in story-time. Our infant program encourages children to follow their own established routines, while becoming comfortable and secure in a new group setting.
Kids & Company’s Toddler program is for children between the ages of roughly 18 months and 2.5 years. Toddlers are mobile and eager to explore their environment. As they strive for independence, our educators use an Emergent curriculum approach to learning that supports each child’s individuality. Some of the most important learning outcomes of our toddler program are language development, socialization, self-help skills, and the development of fine and gross motor skills.
Kids & Company’s Preschool program is designed for children between the ages of roughly 2.5 - 5 years. Our educators interact, observe and interpret the interests of our children to encourage discoveries. Our Preschool program provides a foundation for developing greater independence and problem-solving skills; the program integrates new concepts into our children’s world view, promotes sharing and mutual respect, and prepares them for Kindergarten.
