Meet the Director

I am Kemesha, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Islington. I attended Seneca College, where I received a diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for over 15 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2008. My passion has always been teaching young children. Watching them develop and grow to reach their milestones is a rewarding part of the career. The Kids & Company Islington location is unique because our programs we offer provides children with a home away from home atmosphere. We have a very  spacious playground where children can practice all their gross motor skills. I am so passionate about working at Kids & Company because of the career growth it offers to its employees. Now that you know a little more about me, please come for a visit so you can 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.
