Welcome to Kids & Company King George! We’re located in Surrey at the King George Sky Train Station (at the end of the line), with easy access for Vancouver commuters. We are in the new Coast Capital Head Office Building on King George Blvd. and are very close to Surrey Memorial Hospital and Simon Fraser University – Surrey Campus. There’s plenty of parking for easy, fast drop-offs/pick-ups. Our Learning Environment: Our beautiful new centre has floor-to-ceiling windows and high ceilings which create an airy, spacious environment for our children. There are 5 classrooms, where we accept infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Our outdoor space includes a large panoramic patio playground with views of Holland Park and lots of space for creative, free play and gross motor activities. You can even see the Sky Train from our patio (which delights our students!) Our Food:
Our on-site Kidco Kitchen provides healthy, tasty “made from scratch” snacks and lunch for our students. Read our menu and see what we are serving. Ask for a taste when you come to take a tour. Our Programs: At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Alpha-Mania (pre-literacy and early reading), Mini Masters (art), and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially 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. All our children participate in music, French, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day. Does your family have a non-traditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs. We offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a greater work-life balance.
We have marked stalls for parent pickup and drop off in the building's underground parkade on level P1.
Meet The Director
I am Janelle Norman, the Centre Director at Kids & Company King George. I started working at Kids & Company in October of 2012 after graduating from Grant Macewan University.
My beautiful family includes myself, my husband Cory, my daughter Layna and my son, Nate. Our family likes to spend time in nature and experience the outdoors as much as possible. Camping, hiking, travelling and exploring are our favourite activities. My husband and I share an affinity for chasing total solar eclipses. We also like to ski and snowboard in the winter time.
King George feels like my second home and my second family. When I moved here from our Vancouver location 5 years ago, I had the opportunity to build my centre from the ground up. Over the years I’ve met so many wonderful families and have worked with such an outstanding team. I am so grateful for every relationship this centre has brought me.
At Kids & Company we value a work-life balance and offer quality, flexible care for families. We believe that children learn through play, and we offer a variety of curriculum and activities that are directly tuned into the children’s interests. I hope you will come to visit our centre and see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
