Our Kids & Company Kids World centre is a unique and beautiful facility. Our spacious centre is surrounded by greenery and lovely flower gardens. The natural atmosphere extends inside our centre with wood and wicker furnishings and soft, muted colours. We have a library, an indoor multipurpose common room and three terrace playgrounds which are great play spaces for our children to enjoy their outdoor activities. We have 8 classrooms which each grow their own plant and vegetable gardens, giving our children a fantastic hands-on learning experience. Our wonderful team of teachers work hard to create a warm and nurturing environment for our children and their families!
We have a large parking lot specifically for our Kids & Company community.
Meet the Director
My name is Lisa Hoggard and I am the Centre Director at Kids & Company Kids World. I have been working at Kids & Company since 2011 and am a recipient of an Early Childhood Education diploma. I have been working in child care for over 30 years! One thing I love about working here at Kids World is that it’s all nature-based. We have an amazing backyard where the kids can get some fresh air, explore and have fun. However, my favourite thing about our centre is that we are a team and that we pull together when needed to support each other.
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.
Select Kids & Company locations offer school age 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 a program that’s run by trusted educators, Kids & Company school age programs may be right for your child.
