Welcome to Kids & Company Jack N Jill Abington! We offer full and part time programs for children ranging from six weeks through to six years.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Regarding Open House: Please note our Abington center is only available for virtual tours on weekdays, by appointment only. We’d love to have you. To book a private tour, please call 1-866-MY-KIDCO.
Hello, my name is Robin Purtell and I am the Center Director for Kids & Company’s Abington location. I started my career with Kids & Company in February 2022 and I have been working in the child care industry for over 10 years. I knew that this was the right career for me as I have always appreciated and loved watching children learn and grow in a fun, safe environment. Our center is well known in the town of Abington. We have a very strong sense of community and diversity, and we take pride in the care we provide for not only our children at the center, but the community all around. I was so excited to start my career at Kids and Company when I saw what a great, family-oriented, supportive and open community it was. Now that you know more about me, I would be thrilled to meet you and your family! I look forward to welcoming you to the Kids & Company Abington center so you can see for yourself how incredible the program is in providing the right care and education for your children.
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.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
