Our Kids & Company Hamilton centre is located at the corner of Macklin Street South and Main Street West. We have 7 classrooms and can accommodate up to 92 children between the ages of infant to 5 years. Our classrooms have large windows that create a bright and warm environment for our children. We have a great outdoor playground with a shaded area for sunny, summer days. Whether our children are participating in our Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy), Mini-Masters (art) or Munchkinetics (movement) programs, enjoying nutritious and delicious meals from our Kidco Kitchen chefs, or getting active outside, our centre is always filled with busy and smiling faces from both our children and teachers!
At Garden level, in the rear of the building, designated Kids & Company parking spots are available.
Meet The Director
My name is Julianne Daley and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Hamilton centre. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2006, and have over 10 years of experience in the child care field. I am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma with Honours from Mohawk College and am registered with the College of Early Childhood Educators. I am also a certified Educational Assistant. In my spare time, I enjoy family game nights, swimming, camping, travelling, singing, and planning special events. Some of my hobbies include mechanics, construction, creative arts, cake decorating, photography and hip-hop/ballroom dancing. I am also a licensed Zumba instructor! In my philosophy, I feel we all learn from everyday experiences, as do our children. I think it is necessary to provide a stimulating learning environment for our children to thrive in. I always say that the best thing to spend on your children is time. As Early Childhood Educators and parents, we should take the time to have fun, teach, guide and build healthy relationships with our children, while remembering we are all children at heart! As a Director at Kids & Company, I can partake in every aspect of the parent-teacher-child relationship and know that together we are building a happy and healthy future for our children. Now that you know a bit more about me, it would be my pleasure to meet you and give you a tour of our Hamilton centre. Come see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide quality 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
