Now accepting applications for full and part-time care! Are you exploring early education and child care options for your child in the Oakville area? Here’s why you should consider Kids & Company: 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 & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
More than just daycare, we offer flexible child care and superior early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
My name is Stephanie Decouto and I am the Centre Director and Kids & Company Joshua Creek. I have been working in child care for over 15 years; I have always loved learning about child development. Outside of child care, I enjoy spending time with my family. We are a very close-knit family, who enjoy having Sunday lunches together, travelling and bowling.My favourite thing about my team is how hard we work together within the classrooms. The children are always the number one priority. We are committed to providing a curriculum that contributes to each aspect of the children’s development while ensuring their safety and security. We aim to provide a supportive atmosphere for the children to grow emotionally, physically and intellectually. We consistently provide a warm and inviting environment where your child will feel welcome and confident while building on their self-esteem. Now that you know about me, I would love to meet you. Stop by our Kids & Company Joshua Creek location for a chance to see why we could be a perfect fit for you and your family!
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.
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.
