Our Centre

Welcome to Kids & Company Islington!

This location is in a free-standing building just off Islington Ave. and south of Bloor St. W. We are easily accessible by bus and have 5 parking spots in front of the building for easy drop-off and pick-up. Our brightly-lit classrooms are accompanied by an outdoor play space that is shaded by a large tree.

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. 

Our 7 classrooms can accommodate 100 children from newborn to 12 years old. Children can join our Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Kindergarten and School Age programs with the option to attend full-time or with our backup care solution. Caregivers will have access to our password-protected webcams to keep up to date on their child’s day.

We provide our children 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.

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.
