Jagare Ridge

Our Centre

Our Jagare Ridge location is on the second floor of a new building in the development beside the Shoppes of Jagare Ridge. We are excited about the large windows and natural light in this beautiful facility nestled in a close-knit community. There is designated parking spaces available directly outside the centre for parents to drop-off and pick-up conveniently. We have space for up to 108 children with 8 classrooms and have programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-age children. Transportation is available to nearby schools at no additional fee. At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re very proud of our proprietary programs! They include Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) and are designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! We often hear children singing the Alpha-Mania theme song before the teacher even begins the lessons, a clear indication of their enthusiasm about learning through play. You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms, and all our children participate in music, French, science and exploration, and creative play. All menus are created by our chief nutritionist and prepared fresh daily by the Kidco Kitchen. We change up our menu with the seasons to take advantage of local produce options for diversity and also to provide learning opportunities about where food comes from as part of our nutrition curriculum. We take a family-style dining approach to eating to encourage fine motor skills, independence and a willingness to try new food. Does your family have a non-traditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs! More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.

Meet The Director

My name is Nicole Tolsma and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Jagare Ridge centre. I have been a Child Development Supervisor for a number of years and have a level 3 Early Childhood Education degree from Lethbridge College. I have been at Kids & Company since 2009 and have over 16 years of experience in the child care field. To tell you more about myself, I have a beautiful son named Raine who is the light of my life! I am amazed every single day at how quickly he is growing and learning new things. His smile literally brightens up my day! In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family (my son and all of my nieces and nephews – I have 7!), and doing anything “crafty” like card making, scrap booking, painting, crocheting and knitting. The Jagare Ridge centre is brand new in 2019 and it’s a pleasure to be a part of. We are located in an up-and-coming neighborhood on the south-west side of the city, minutes from the Anthony Henday and within walking distance to some nice shops and amenities. It’s a beautiful facility with lots of natural light and new equipment to explore. Now that you know a bit 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
    • 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
    • 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.

  • Preschool
    • 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.

  • Kindergarten Programs
    • Kids & Company runs comprehensive kindergarten programs designed for children who are 4 or 5 years old (junior and senior kindergarten age) to prepare them for Grade 1. Using emergent curriculum techniques to adapt to the children’s’ interests and skills, we set a foundation of early literacy, numeracy, artistry, and the construction of relationships and ideas. Kindergarten programs are integrated into full-time child care to provide convenience and continuity.

  • School Age Programs
    • Select Kids & Company locations offer after school programming for children ages 6-12 (Grades 1 – 6). Whether you have a younger child attending a Kids & Company location and you’d like the convenience of picking up your children in the same location or you’d like an after school program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.

  • Camp Programs
    • Kids & Company offers school-age day camps during breaks and summer for children in Grades 1 and up. We meet each morning at your chosen centre and then undertake daily adventures on-site or at local attractions like museums, festivals, parks and educational centres. We plan themes and outings that are designed to stimulate and excite in a setting that is safe, social and fun. Children who join us for a day, a week or a summer create important friendships, exercise their minds and bodies, and explore the community around them.
