Every day our centre is brightly illuminated by the sun shining through our large classroom windows, creating a warm and fresh learning environment.

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!

Programs Offered

  • Infants

      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.
