Our Kids & Company Islington centre is located near Islington Road just south of Bloor. Our centre has 7 classrooms and can accommodate up to 100 children. Every day our centre is brightly illuminated by the sun shining through our large classroom windows, creating a warm and fresh learning environment. The brightness of our centre is matched by the positivity and energy of our fantastic teachers, who work hard to bring out the best in your children! We offer a variety of proprietary programs including Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy), Mini Masters (art) and Munchkinetics (movement), which are all designed to engage our children in a unique and interactive learning process. We also have great indoor and outdoor play spaces that keep our little ones active no matter what the weather brings. In the neighbourhood? Check out our friends West End Mamas!

Meet The Director
Hello, my name is Tong Zhang, but for those who know me, I go by Anastasia. I am the centre director at the Islington Kids & Company location. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a major in Interpretation and Translation and a College Diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been working with children for over 5 years — I knew it was a passion of mine when I moved to Canada and began to study Early Childhood Education. As an educator, I believe in an individualistic approach to child care. I value and develop each child’s unique strengths, skills, abilities and knowledge. I am truly honoured to work with children and be part of their growth and development. As for me, I met my husband when I moved to Canada and we started our small family together. We have a 2-year-old daughter, Chelsea. I like reading, photography, playing guitar and piano and travelling with family and friends. I am so grateful to be working at Kids & Company with such amazing and passionate staff. Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come to visit our Islington centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child!
