Jackson

Our Center

Welcome to Kids & Company Jackson! 

This Chicago location is in the West Loop neighborhood near the corner of Jackson Blvd. and Peoria St., on the first floor of a residential building that is easily accessible by car or transit. 

Inside you’ll find large windows that let in lots of natural light, educational and age-appropriate toys, and spacious classrooms where children can socialize and learn. We also have password-protected webcams that let caregivers check in on their children throughout the day. When weather permits, we bring children to the public park nearby to enjoy some fresh air and get physically active. 

Our 5 classrooms can accommodate 82 children from 6 weeks to 5 years old in the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool programs. These programs are available on a part-time, full-time or back-up care basis. 

At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. This means children are presented with learning opportunities in direct response to their individual interests and skills. Our children are immersed in experiences that enhance language, literacy, a sense of music and rhythm, and socialization so that they may develop independence, confidence and a positive sense of self and the world around them.

Children are provided 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 flavors or colors. Learn more here

Meet the Director

My name is Katrina Cottrell and I am the Center Director at Kids & Company, Chicago Jackson. I have been employed with Kids & Company as an Assistant Director since 2018 and have been in the Early Childhood Education field since 2012. Throughout the years, I have had the luxury of working with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education: Child and Family Services from Southern Illinois University in 2012. Five years later, I decided to further my education and career. I attended National Louis University where I received my Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Administration. I believe that the early years of life are the most important and I am here to make sure the children are provided with the care and education they need to prepare them for adulthood. I look forward to building strong relationships with the families at the Jackson location. Now that you know more about me, I would love to meet you and your family! 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
    • 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.

      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.
