This centre is located in downtown Calgary on the main floor of the Livingston Office Tower (West), just behind the Chinese Cultural Centre. It’s a convenient location for caregivers working in the downtown area that want to know their child is not too far away.
We offer Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten programs with the option of full-time, part-time, or backup care. Our 5 classrooms accommodate up to 56 children from 0 months to 5 years old. Each room is equipped with a password-protected webcam as well as engaging toys that support our emergent curriculum and learn-through-play philosophy.
Sunshine and nature never feel very far away inside as our centre is filled with large windows. Our outdoor playground is surrounded by beautiful trees and includes a garden and courtyard that we get to enjoy in all four seasons.
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.
Subsidies are accepted in Alberta for families who qualify. Contact the Centre Director for more information.

My name is Mimi Blanchard and I am the Director at the Kids & Company Livingston centre. I hold a Bachelor of Secondary Education and a Masters in Religious Education and have been working in child care for over 5 years. I was very excited to join the Kids & Company team in 2012 because of the strong reputation, family-focused culture and support from an established team. I am married to a great and patient man. We have a 4 legged daughter and her name is Lucy, a mixed poodle and Shih Tzu that means lots of running and cuddling around the house. I have 3 loving step children who are all adults now and from one of them, I have a happy grandson and a granddaughter on the way! I always look forward to spring and summer where I can garden and water the lawn while waiting for my sunflowers to bloom. My new hobby is creating some rustic decorations for my living room and kitchen. Zumba and Netflix balance out the rest of my spare time! The things I love about the Livingston centre are the wide smiles of the staff as they come in the morning with good mornings and how are yous exchanged! It brings happy energy that is continuous to the parents and children. We focus on high-quality care, having fun and working together to create a great learning environment. Being in the heart of downtown means convenience for our parents who work nearby, and we have several who manage to come by on lunch breaks to be with us. Now that you know a bit about me, I would love to meet you and your family! Join us for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kids & Company can provide the right care and education for your child.
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.
