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.
There's an underground garage at the building but one does need to pay for parking. Parents may use 20 min max temporary parking right at the roundabout in front of the building, showing a permit issued from the centre.
Meet The Director
My name is Grace Kwon and I am the Director at the Kids & Company’s Finch centre. I started my journey with Kids & Company when I was an Early Childhood Education student in 2011, here at our Finch location. Since that day I always had a goal to work as a Centre Director for Kids & Company, and now here I am a recipient of an ECE diploma from Seneca College and have over 18 years of child care experience.
I was born in South Korea and immigrated to Canada when I was 5 years old with my parents and younger sister, and I have a 3-year-old son! My son has been attending Kids and Company since he was 12 months old. He has learned and grown so much and I am so thankful as a full time working mom for the high-quality care my son receives.
Outside the world of child care, I like to cook, try new restaurants, and just spend time with my loved ones. 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.
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 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.
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.
For the time being, our in-centre birthday party and other live events will temporarily not be available. If you require any information on future bookings or have any questions, please reach out to Christie firstname.lastname@example.org
