Our Kids & Company Front centre is nestled in the core of downtown Toronto, located on the ground level of the RBC tower on Front Street. We have 5 classrooms and can accommodate up to 62 children ranging from infant to 5 years. Each of our spacious classrooms have large windows which stream in natural light all day long, creating a fresh and nurturing learning environment. Our outdoor playground offers our children a safe space to play in and a great area to practice their Munchkinetics physical activity program. Also, it provides a picturesque view of the CN Tower and tall city skyscrapers which our kids love to look at and show us where Mommy and Daddy work! We have a wonderful team of dedicated teachers who work hard to create a safe and loving environment for our children. We are a proud sponsor of PeerTutor.
We have one parking spot for pick up and drop off. It is located in the lane way if you drive south on bluejays way in between wellington and front.
Meet the Director
My name is Amber Vasconcelos and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Front centre. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma from Humber College and have over 4 years of child care experience. Outside the world of child care, I have a large family with 5 siblings and 1 niece named Aria who is 2 years old. In my free time, I enjoy to travel, bake, and work on physical fitness. My favourite thing about the Front centre is that we all make up a special unique family. The children, staff and families all make our centre very welcoming and a supportive environment. We encourage children to lead their play experiences while the staff are there to support and encourage an open learning environment. We promote an inclusive atmosphere where everyone is welcomed. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit our Front 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.
