Our Kids & Company Larry Uteck centre is one of the smaller Kids & Company locations in Canada! Although some of the other Kids & Company centres are triple our size, Larry Uteck has a huge heart and offers a cozy, intimate and nurturing environment. We have 4 classrooms and can accommodate up to 76 children ranging from infants to preschoolers. Our centre is always filled with smiling faces from both our children and teachers! Kids & Company Larry Uteck is located in a growing community and conveniently located near all major routes and bus routes.
I am Chrystal Langor, the Centre Director of Kids & Company Larry Uteck. I attended St. Joseph’s College, where I received a diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been working in child care for 24 years, and I have been working with Kids & Company since 2013. I enjoy all the challenges that I can overcome while working with children. I enjoy that I can be funny and silly and see the children smile ear to ear; I love to see children explore using their ideas. We have amazing staff at this location, and it feels like we are all family. Kids & Company gives their employees many opportunities to grow in their careers and build new skills. Now that you know a little more about me, please come for a visit to 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.
