Harrison

Our Center

Welcome to Kids & Company Harrison! 

Our newly renovated Harrison center is a haven for exploration and growth. Recent upgrades have created a bright, open, and airy space designed to spark curiosity and creativity in every child. With new toys and equipment and interactive learning opportunities, our center is a space where little minds can flourish. We also have password-protected webcams that let caregivers check in on their children throughout the day. 

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. 

This Chicago location is in the South Loop neighborhood near the corner of Clark St. and Harrison St. Our learning space sits on the first floor of a residential building and is easily accessible by car or transit. Parents travelling by car can use the 15-minute standing zone on the side of our building (on Clark St.) for pick-up and drop-off. 

When weather permits, we bring children to the public park nearby to ride bikes and scooters, play with balls and hula hoops, climb through tunnels and challenge each other to hopscotch matches. 

Our 6 classrooms can accommodate 83 children from 6 weeks to 6 years old in the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool programs. These programs are available on a part-time, full-time or back-up care basis. 

At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. This means children are presented with learning opportunities in direct response to their individual interests and skills. Our children are immersed in experiences that enhance language, literacy, a sense of music and rhythm, and socialization so that they may develop independence, confidence and a positive sense of self and the world around them.

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 flavors or colors. Learn more here

Meet the Director

My name is Vanessa Ochoa, and I am the Center Director of Harrison. I have been working in child care for more than 7 years. I am passionate about working with children because I enjoy making a positive impact on their educational journey by building relationships and creating a fun environment where they can learn and grow. Kids & Company feels like family. Teachers, parents, and children build great relationships beyond just the center.

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.
