Our beautiful centre has floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings which create a fresh and spacious learning environment for our children. What makes our centre unique is that we are surrounded by mountains but considered a desert, so the views are breathtaking, and it’s usually quite sunny. Kids & Company Kamloops is ready for your child as early as 6:30 am and is located just off Highway 5A, near the City View Shopping Center in Aberdeen. We have 5 classrooms and can accommodate up to 56 children. Our centre is surrounded by mountains with breath taking views!
Regarding Open House: Please note our Kamloops Centre is only available for tours on weekdays, by appointment only. To book a private tour call 1-866-MY-KIDCO.
There is lots of parking available for drop off and pick up right out front of the centre.
Meet the Director
My name is Laura Carson and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Kamloops. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Education, and I also specialize in Special Needs Education. I have been in the child care industry for almost 30 years, and have been working with Kids & Company since 2003. Since I was young, I’ve loved working with children and when growing up, I was the neighbourhood babysitter. I was introduced to Early Childhood Education by a professor and knew instantly that this was the perfect career for me. I am a proud, single mom of two boys who are all grown up! I recently moved to British Columbia from Ontario, and the Kids & Company Kamloops centre has been so welcoming and warm, making it a smooth and easy transition for me. I can guarantee you will get the same warm welcoming I received when you first join our Kamloops family. Kids & Company has always felt like a family to me. You can always count on Kids & Company to be flexible and accommodating when you’re in need of child care. The Kamloops team and I are here to support you and your family.
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.
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.
