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.
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.
