Gulf Canada Square

Our Centre

Welcome to Kids & Company Gulf Canada Square! 

This flagship location is on the first floor of the Gulf Canada Square office building on 9th Avenue SW, just west of Macleod Trail. Our 10 classrooms can accommodate 150 children, making it a great option for the many parents that work in downtown Calgary. We are accessible by CTrain and bus stops as well as the Plus 15 Walkway, and there are three parking spots designated for pick-up and drop-off. 

Our location is proudly endorsed by Eco-Healthy Child Care®, a program that partners with child care professionals to eliminate environmental hazards in early learning settings with the goal of protecting the health of children and staff. 

We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and School Age programs with the option of full-time or backup care. Each classroom is full of age-appropriate, educational toys that support our emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. There are also webcams in each room so that caregivers can stay up to date on their child’s day. Paired with our bright and spacious interior is a unique outdoor play area that features both sunny and shady areas for year-round use.

Children are provided 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.

Subsidies are accepted in Alberta for families who qualify. Contact the Centre Director for more information.

Meet the Director

My name is Myrna Manzano and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Gulf Canada centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since October of 2009, and am a recipient of a Level 3 Child Development Supervisor and Bachelor of Secondary Education diploma from the Philippines. I have loved being with children since I was in high school and have over 24 years of child care experience. To tell you a bit more about myself, I am celebrating 19 years of marriage with my husband this year and I have three beautiful daughters, Isabela, Hannah and Kristin. In my spare time, I enjoy singing and dancing, spending time with my family, watching movies and trying new restaurants. I love working at Kids & Company because it gives me the opportunity to work with children and see how they grow every day, which brings me so much happiness. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Gulf Canada centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • day care center

      Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 15 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.

  • Toddlers
    • Child learning with early childhood educator

      Kids & Company’s Toddler program is for children between the ages of roughly 15 months and 2.9 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.
