The Kids World location is in the Willoughby neighbourhood of Langley. We are near the corner of 202b St. and 68 Ave. and are accessible by car and bus. Parents driving by bus will appreciate the large parking lot, making drop-off and pick-up pain-free.
We have 8 classrooms that can accommodate 165 children in our Infant, Toddler, Preschool and School Age programs. School Age is available for Before and After School Care, School Break, and Summer Camp with bus and van transportation included during the school year. All other programs are available on a full-time, part-time, or backup care basis.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy. This means classrooms are equipped with educational toys and Early Childhood Educators readily guide children as their interests emerge. Classrooms also have password-protected webcams to keep parents up to date on their child’s day.
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. Along with each age group’s designated room is a gross motor room for physical play and a quiet library. Outside, there are three terrace playgrounds that children can enjoy year-round.
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 flavours or colours. Learn more here.

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.
Kids & Company’s Infant program welcomes newborns up to roughly 18 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 18 months and 2.5 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.
Kids & Company’s Preschool program is designed for children between the ages of roughly 2.5 - 5 years. Our educators interact, observe and interpret the interests of our children to encourage discoveries. Our Preschool program provides a foundation for developing greater independence and problem-solving skills; the program integrates new concepts into our children’s world view, promotes sharing and mutual respect, and prepares them for Kindergarten.
Kids & Company’s School Age program accepts children from 5 - 12 years old (Grade 1 - 6) and is available at select locations. Programs include Before and After School Care, School Break Programming, and Summer Camp. Classroom space exists for smaller groups to gather, and activities are designed to meet the needs of varying developmental levels, touching on arts, science, math, drama, imaginative play, and physical fitness. Educators are also available to provide academic support for children that wish to do their homework during After School Care.
